I Am Not Motivated To Do Anything

taking a walk in nature is one step to help us get motivated
Feeling Unmotivated? A Nature walk is your first Step.

I Am Not Motivated

I am not motivated to do anything  this time of year.  Let me rephrase. I find that there are many days during this time of year that I feel unmotivated.  I have a lot on my list to do; but either I am confused as to what to start on first or I feel defeated before I start.  What I have found is the best thing to do when I don’t feel motivated to do anything is to throw on my coat, boots, gloves and toque and just take off for a walk. I tell myself it is just a 5 minute walk.

What Works

As soon as I begin walking I mentally go over my  list of things that I should do.

Step 1:  I choose the one thing that I would enjoy doing the most. (Yesterday it was cleaning my living room carpet)

Step 2:  I concentrated on enjoying my walk. I breath deeply. I listen and try to identify sounds. Yesterday, within 4 minutes I saw something that was beautiful to my eye. Within 10 minutes I observed rabbit tracks in the fresh snow on the frozen creek.  Now my curiosity kicked in.  I did a little nature observing. Where did the rabbit enter the frozen over stream? Where did it jump off?

The sun shone warmly on my face as I wandered  home.  My mind started to picture the carpet and how it would look all cleaned up. By the time I entered my door I was refreshed in body and spirit and motivated to get the carpet cleaner out.

Step 3: I  accomplish the favourite task.

Still Feeling Unmotivated?

That’s alright; because you have physically done something good for yourself. Your mind has been refreshed and if you followed through with step 3 you have accomplished something that you wouldn’t have had.  Cheer up.  Try it all over again tomorrow if you still are not motivated to do anything.
