One day you’ll be on-top of the world, and then suddenly you might get struct by the ‘I can’t be bothered’ disease. It can strike at anytime, and results in a transformation into Mr Couch Potato if symptoms aren’t treated early. Signs of this disease can start with excessive laziness, including not wanting to get out of bed or get out of the house.

On a serious note, when you feel unmotivated – you’re powerless and not quite sure what you should do to get out of it. That’s why I’m sharing with you my top 3 tips to getting your motivation mojo back. The biggest secret here is to do the opposite of what you’re currently doing. You’re likely to interrupt your brain patterns.

#1 Move Your Body

When we feel stuck and unmotivated, chances are that you aren’t moving much. The mind and the body are connected. A lethargic mind also equals a lethargic body.  If you want to make fast changes to your mindset, move your body! Go for a jog, a walk… or do a little happy dance!

#2 Rock Out to Some Tunes!
