New year is always a great moment to re-create yourself, to pursue your goals, to learn new things and plenty more! 🤗
I have plenty goals, plenty ideas and plenty resolutions for this year.
What about you? Do you want to change something in yourself this year? Do you want to learn something new? 😃
My resolutions/plans for 2022:

What about you?
What are your plans for 2022? 😃
We’ve already went through theoretical part of our Motivational Monday series 📝. We’ve learned what exactly motivation is, what may be a reason of lack of it, how motivation works with different emotions, how to set a precise plan of action etc. Now it’s time to learn useful practical tricks that you may use when you don’t feel like working and you want to boost your motivation (and it’s so needed for our new year’s resolutions, right? 🤩)
3 quick tricks you may do to boost your motivation 💪:
➡️ 1. Argue the Opposite 🔛
Often when we don’t feel like working we come up with plenty excuses 🙄. So to any excuse your mind will give you like „I won’t succeed anyway” quickly think „But what if I do? Plenty people succeed so can I!” 😃; instead of „It’s too dificult, I won’t make it” think „It may be difficult at first but I’ll learn how to do it and it will get easier with time!”. 😎
Arguing the opposite can help you see both ends of the spectrum. It can also remind you that an overly pessimistic outcome isn’t completely accurate.
➡️ 2. Use the 10-Minute Rule ⏰ – this is what works best for me 😄
Give yourself permission to quit a task after 10 minutes. When you reach the 10-minute mark, ask yourself if you want to keep going or quit 🤔. You’ll likely find that you have enough motivation to keep going. So in the end you don’t have to push yourself to work for 6-8h or how long but you just need to push yourself for those 10min and the rest will go with the flow 😉.
➡️ 3. Pair a Dreaded Task With Something You Enjoy 🎶
Boost your mood by adding a little fun to something you’re not motivated to do 😃
Here are some examples:
🔸️ Listen to music while you run.
🔸️ Call a friend, and talk while you’re cleaning the house.
🔸️ Light a scented candle while you’re working on your computer.
Which one do you think would work best on you? 🤔
Those are just a few. Come back next Monday for more! 🤩
Happy New Year!!!
🎊🎉🎊🎉 What are your plans for this year? Do you have a goal?
Remember: “A goal without a plan is just a wish”
You’ll need a good plan!
2018 was important for me due to big steps in my life (marriage and moving in to our 1st home of our own) but 2019 will be for my dreams and self-growth! I want to make this blog big (please help me 😊) + i’ll tell you soon about this goal of mine that i’ve been working on for 7 years – it will be important this year!
