5 ways to motivate yourself

Motivation is something which helps us in achieving our dream. You have a goal to achieve and you do everything to achieve that goal, you sacrifice, you fail and you try again, that’s called motivation. Motivation is within you. I have been researching on the internet on how to keep yourself motivated. There were many ways to motivate yourself but I found 5 ways which worked for me best.  So here are 5 ways to motivate yourself:


Yes, exercise. It’s been 3 months that I joined the gym not because to have a perfect body but to be healthy to be fit and in 3 months I can now see the difference. My body and mind feel light. I have a clear picture of my path.

2. Do Meditation:

Meditation is a process through which I calm myself. I use Headspace app for the meditation. With the help of meditation, I keep myself relaxed and focused. Even it helps in sleep as well.

3. Take small steps towards your goal:

I remember earlier I always wanted to have an instant result for my work. Due to lack of patience, I always took big steps to get the fast result. But it doesn’t work in this way. In order to achieve our goal, we must take small steps. Make a to-do list. Create a long-term goal and according to that create a short-term goal. Work every day on your short-term goal and you will achieve your long-term goal.

4. Be Grateful:

Last year I read a book “What I know for sure” by Oprah Winfrey. (Check out)  What I learned from this book was how to be grateful, how to be thankful for what we have and now no matter what, I made this in practice every day I’ll perform gratitude. Ill thank for everything I have. Do it every day and you will find positivity inside you.

5. Have a vision board:

I was watching videos of one of my favorite youtube channel Lavendaire and in one of her video, I found the concept of a vision board. Vision board is basically a board where you have to paste pictures of that stuff which you want to achieve in your life. For instance: If you want to travel to a particular place, paste the picture of that place into our vision board, if you want to own a house, paste the picture of the house. Keep that board in front of your workplace and you will get motivated whenever you will see your vision board.

  1. Hi! This is a great blog. Do you have any tips on motivating someone to get into this lifestyle? As a victim of depression and anxiety, I always find myself stuck in this box. People would always tell me to do what you advice, such as meditating or exercising. It’s easier said than done. Just getting myself motivated enough to leave the bed is difficult enough. What’s your advice for fighting the inner demons and start building good habits?

    • Hey! Glad you liked my blog. Sometimes this happens to me also, anxiety for no reason. What I did is I generate habit for everything. I surrounded myself with positivity because positivity is the key to kill the inner demons. Make a list of things which makes you happy. Reward yourself by doing those things. For building good habits, I always reward myself. Meditation and exercise come later, start doing things first which makes you happier and start loving yourself. Don’t bother what others say. Happiness lies within you. 🙂
