SOMEDAY IS A DISEASE THAT WILL TAKE YOUR DREAMS TO THE GRAVE WITH YOU," - Tim Ferriss
The last week has brought beautiful weather that makes me want to stay outside all day. The cool, crisp air somehow brings feelings of a new beginning for me, a fresh start, despite it being closer to an end of year.
Unfortunately, the weather doesn't last, and the motivation to stay outside and get out in the public doesn't either.
For others, it isn' the Fall that brings this feeling--the one of hope, light, and excitement--the giddiness to get up in the morning and feel the cool air trace along your cheeks. Even so, you can relate to the feeling. But what happens when, like everything else, it doesn't last?
Sometimes loss of motivation stems from underlying depression or crippling anxiety that tells you all the things to worry about. Other times, you just don't "feel" like getting out or leaving your bed. If you're not clinically depressed and maybe just finding yourself more unmotivated and sluggish, here are a few ways to gain the motivation back, make moves in your daily routine, and continue to be productive through being outside, getting things done, doing fun activities in the community, or meeting up with friends.
