How to Handle Having a Lack of Motivation

Suffering from a lack of motivation?

My band had shows in Virginia and West Virginia this past weekend. Both shows lasted until 2 am.

Needless to say, this weekend drained a lot of my energy. These shows were our fifth and sixth shows this month. All the shows end around similar times. Yet I’ve still been able to blog every day this month – most of which can be found on my political blog.

If I can blog on days when I’m in a van with my band mates then stay up half the night playing music then you can too.

I woke up today after getting home early Sunday morning and felt no motivation. I knew I had to pump out another post today, but I was tired.

Instead of laying in bed all day, I knew the only way to get my creative juices flowing was to work. Since my brain still needed time to rest, I decided to clean a couple of rooms in my house. Light, absent-minded work was the best way for me to tell my brain to get into gear.

Now, as I’m writing this, I have a much cleaner house, and a cleaner mind. And I feel way better about myself than I would have if I laid in bed all day. Double win!

So next time you fell less motivated than normal, try easing yourself into the “zone” by doing random tasks. It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you move. Eventually just moving will manifest into the momentum you need to tackle the day’s most daunting tasks.

Keep on grinding.
