There can be many causes of low motivation and energy.

Sometimes you can feel completely unmotivated to do anything. Getting things done at work and home is a challenge. You can find there is little balance in your life – you stop cooking meals, find it difficult to exercise – overall lacking the necessary willpower or energy to start a particular task. Your energy then gets used up, or re-routed to indulge in something effortless like entertainment or food. Very quickly you can find yourself in a vicious cycle.

Causes of Motivational Issues

Talking to one of our team can help to pinpoint what is causing your lack of motivation. For example, it might be:

  • Social rejection – you think nobody would care either way
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Needs are neglected – you need to eat to feel well and you need to move your body daily
  • Lots of decisions to make – this can cause fatigue and exhaustion
  • Depression and other Mental Health Illnesses – low motivation can be a symptom of mental health issues.

There can be many causes of low motivation and energy, don’t let this go on for so long that your work, family, and well-being are affected adversely.

  • Plan your day the night before – this can stop you from feeling overwhelmed in the morning and is a great way to help start the day.
  • Avoid distractions – close out of all social media accounts, websites or anything that could potentially cause a shift of mental focus and energy. Be efficient by staying focused.
  • Let others motivate you – listen to podcasts, music, read a book or watch something inspiring. This can help position yourself in the right mindset. Try to start your day reading an inspiring book.
  • Don’t neglect your health – eat well, exercise and try to sleep 8hrs a night.
