At some point in time, we all start feeling less energetic and struggle to find motivation. At that time our goals become less important, we find it difficult to achieve then and we might start wondering if we are capable. It is common to feel this way but, when these moments start becoming more frequent, we might start seeing ourselves differently and we should think about it. (Laziness)
Did you start calling ourselves lazy? If you start feeling unproductive or lazy at times, you are certainly not alone. In order to make real progress and quit our lazy and unproductive patterns, we should recognize what might be influencing our inability to reach our desired goals or leaving us feeling lazy than we would like to be.
Let’s have a look the several habits that can make you fail in achieving your goals:
Expecting yourself to be the perfect one
Making your dreams or goals too much complicated
Listening to criticism from others
Listening to your inner critic
Not focusing on your way of focus
Not making a plan to action
Now we’ll discuss some achievable steps that you can take to be more active and stay on track of your goals:
Make attainable goals
As you consider the big and complicated goals, remember the key steps that will be required to get there and write them down. You can still desire to achieve your desired goals, but break that huge goal down into smaller goals that will help you feel more motivated and accomplished to continue climbing. (Laziness)
Focus on your strengths
Do you find it quite tough to think of any of your strengths? Consider a challenge you have been through and reflect on what strengths you used to get through that experience. If you are addicted to an inner critic that focuses on your shortcomings and flaws, you will find great advantage in taking inventory of your strengths. If you still can’t identify your strengths, ask family or friends what they see as your best strength.
Celebrating your success as you achieve small goals, or even as you overcome setbacks, will inspire and motivate you to continue moving forward. The pride we experience in meeting our achievements can help us to do better.
Make a good plan
Think for a moment as you reflect on your goals, considering those attainable and small steps you will need to accomplish in order to get there. Going to start the process with a great action plan will help you feel more peaceful and confident, as well as give you something to refer back to when you have a setback or feel discouraged. Be realistic about the amount of time, effort, help, money, courage, dedication, or other factors involved in meeting your goals. (Laziness)
When we are feeling lazy and tired, the last thing we all want to do is exercise. However, moving our bodies can help increase overall feelings of productivity and our energy levels.
Food plays an important role in how energetic we feel. Try to eat foods that are higher in protein and vitamins, such as Almonds, chicken, yogurt, bananas, salmon, dark leafy green vegetables, oats, and enough water to stay energetic.
