Feeling Unmotivated? 6 Easy Ways To Get Recharged!

What do you do when you have a serious lack of motivation?  Here are 6 easy things I do:

1) Put technology away.
Put away your computer, phone, ipad, and all other techno devices.  It's wonderful having such a connection with the outside world, but it can certainly zap your motivational drive!

2) Get out of your pajamas and take a shower.
I know this sounds silly, but days can get away from us and a nice warm shower can be easily pushed aside.  Taking a shower first thing in the morning is a quick way to get motivated. 

3) Start organizing stuff.
Start with one room/one level of your home at a time.  Put on some good music and get organizing!  Return things to their rightful place.  Throw away stray papers and junk.  Pack away clothes that don't fit into the current season.

4) Accomplish one thing you have been putting off.
What's one thing you have been constantly ignoring?  Buckle down and do it.  You'll feel great!  Just one thing a day...

5) Put away the junk food!
Junk food is a quick fix for satisfaction, but it certainly can drain your energy and leave you feeling sluggish.  Instead, down a couple glasses of water and eat some fresh fruit and/or veggies. 

6) Make a list of people you can encourage.
Pray about who might need some encouragement.  Send them a card or give them a call to let them know you are praying for them and you care!



  1. Hi Traci! I've been voting for you everyday that I remember!


  2. Awesome post, Traci! I agree that technology can be a motivation drain. Our brains can't synonymously be in sync with the virtual world and our real world at the same time.

    If our brains aren't in sync with our real life, then we aren't going to be motivated to engage it!

    And with that, I'm tuning out for a while!

    Til next time:)

    PS. How are you feeling and doing with your pregnancy?

  3. Voted for you!! Great ideas!

  4. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Just wanted ot let you know I am voting for you and remind you to not be discouraged (about all the pagan witch blogs.) God is the business of making Himself famous and I think that's what He's doing (giving so many an opportunity to be exposed to Him through Christian blogs)

  6. Hey girl, what happened to your blog over at the top 25 moms of faith?

    I looked for it but couldn't find it. Maybe I just missed it, but as of a couple of days ago, it was in the top seven.

  7. Hahaha! I saw your title and thought, oh ya I feel unmotivated. I laughed when I read #2, cause I'm sitting here in my jammies! LOL! Ok, I'm off the pc now and getting dressed. Going to fix lunch!

  8. This one was AWESOME! I'll probably keep coming back to it for motivation! LOL

  9. Great ideas. I was unmotivated all weekend, but I told myself this morning.....I MUST GET 2 OF THINGS DONE that I had been dreading in my mind (filing paper work and putting away more of B's clothes).

    I do feel better.
