Before you go off to download your printables, let me share with you some tips to help you boost your intrinsic motivation:
Selecting Meaningful Activities
1. Identify flow experiences. You’ve probably heard about flow. Those are the occasions when you get so caught up in what you’re doing that you lose track of time. You enter a blissful state where everything seems effortless.
2. Keep a feelings log. If you need help determining what conditions trigger flow for you, try starting a journal. You may find that gardening or number-crunching gets you fully engaged. It may turn out that you’re a morning person or that you do your best work after dinner.
3. Set specific goals. Learning and progressing are also essential to keeping an activity interesting. Give yourself measurable targets and timelines to aim for.
4. Take on new challenges. Stretch your abilities by venturing into new areas. Put yourself to the test with something that’s demanding but within reach. Rehearse a new piece of piano music or prepare to take a certification examination for a popular software program.
5. Streamline your schedule. On the other hand, you may also benefit from removing some tasks from your to-do list to make more time for things that are most important to you.
Making Every Activity More Meaningful
1. Understand the motivation continuum. Many experts believe that most of our actions reflect a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic motivations. For example, you may value both your paycheck and the contribution your job makes to society.
2. Participate more intensely. Sometimes a tedious task can be transformed by turning it into a game. When cleaning out the garage, try to guess how long a can of paint has been there.
3. Adopt in-depth learning strategies. Choose study methods that help you to retain more knowledge. Think about how the facts relate to your own life. Evaluate what you read. Write down your summary of the material you’ve covered.
4. Enlist support. Working in groups can liven up a tedious chore. Gather your neighbors together to spruce up a local park. Share responsibility whenever possible.
5. Clarify your purpose. Ask yourself why you’re doing something. It’s easier to exercise when you remember that you want to lose weight.
6. Radiate enthusiasm. A positive attitude will make any job less stressful. Smile and look on the bright side. For example, if you’re dreading your grocery shopping, find a reason to laugh while doing it.
7. Exchange feedback. We can all help each other to feel motivated by being willing to share constructive feedback. Provide tactful and timely information on how to get better.
8. Seek variety. Alternating between tasks can help you stay fresh. Devote 15 minutes at a time to completing your expense reports and filing documents. You may find both projects more pleasant.
9. Get adequate rest. Building regular breaks into your schedule also keeps you motivated and in top condition. Make time for play and reflection. Stick to a consistent bedtime and take naps if you need to supplement your overnight sleep.
10. Serve others. All work becomes more joyful and fulfilling when you view it from the perspective of how it helps others. There are certain careers and activities that lend themselves to this. Maybe you do volunteer work at the local animal shelter. Or perhaps you are a nurse or a teacher that helps others daily. Assisting others is motivating!
Here are 8 additional tips when you need to boost your motivation:
1. Keep your attention on the result rather than the process of getting there. When you find yourself getting bogged down with a large project, remind yourself of the goal. It’s challenging to get started when it’s necessary to put in 100 hours of work or lose 50 lbs. If your motivation is waning, focus on how great you’ll feel when the objective has been met.
2. Schedule regular breaks. Working for 8 hours straight might seem daunting, but knowing that you can take a break in 60 minutes can free up your mind enough to focus intently for an hour. Approach your work 60 minutes at a time, and you’ll be done before you know it.
3. Stand up and move around. A short period of intense exercise can improve creativity, sharpen the mind, and decrease stress. Find an activity appropriate for your environment.
4. Give yourself rewards as milestones are reached. Think of a few self-indulgences that you consider motivating. Break your work into reasonable chunks and give yourself a small reward as the milestones are met.
* These rewards can be very small. A cup of coffee or a short break might be enough to get through a rough patch.
5. Do whatever it takes to get started. It’s surprising how motivation can seemingly appear from nowhere if you can take the first step. Waiting for inspiration to get started is a mistake. You’re likely to notice that the work wasn’t nearly as disagreeable as you thought. You’ll probably be impressed with your progress and begin to feel motivated.
* Whether it’s writing one sentence, making one phone call, or doing one pushup, do whatever it takes to get the ball rolling.
6. Find inspiration through a song or video. YouTube is loaded with inspirational movie clips and presentations. Maybe there is a particular song that motivates you. A couple of minutes spent on this sort of activity can be well worth the time. Consider listening to a favorite song or watching a video on your break time.
* Avoid getting distracted and wasting hours. Five minutes is enough!
7. Use a timer. A timer is a very effective way to focus the mind and get things done. Knowing that the seconds are ticking away is very motivating.
* Having a timer also eliminates the questions of deciding how much to do or when to stop and take a break. You stop when the timer stops.
8. Make a list of the benefits you’ll receive upon completion. Will you finally have the money to pay all of your bills and take a trip? Will you be proud to show off your body at the beach? Can you realize your dream of gaining acceptance into graduate school?
Welcome more fun into your life by letting your passions drive you. Even washing the dishes will become more satisfying when you align your daily activities with internal sources of motivation. Strive to further develop your ability to motivate yourself. Self-motivation is a powerful tool for creating a successful life. Remember that the most challenging task can be to take the first step. Get started, and you’ll find that your motivation begins to grow!
Embrace the change of seasons boldly and have fun!
