3 Things You Can Do When You’re Feeling Unmotivated

More and more often, working people are expected to feel motivated for work at any given time, but as you probably know very well, it’s not always possible. Life happens and we can’t always just switch off and focus on work instead. If you’re currently feeling unmotivated or like you could use some inspiration and creative energy, try these tips.


Schedule Creative Time

Working more and harder won’t help you. You’ll benefit from a break, a time you intentionally set for a creative activity you enjoy. Write, paint, go to a museum or read biographies of people you admire, for example.

Interrupt Your Routine

If you’re constantly on your phone or computer, go outside. Call a friend and go for a walk. Cook something. Do anything you don’t usually do on a daily basis and your creative juices will start flowing again.


Talk to a Friend

You’re not a bad friend if you need to vent about difficult things in your life. A real friend will understand and listen to you and you will feel much better afterward. Then you can move on to happier topics and see what’s going on in their life.
