I've lost the motivation. In fact I feel I've lost motivation for anything at all. I'm always saying I'm going to change my ways and actually get out there and work on my body and my self. But every day I find excuses not to do anything. It's been this way for some time now. Can anyone else relate or have any advise?
That's not all that strange. You could very well suffer from depression and need to see a doctor, but if not, being reluctant to get moving is extremely common.
I have similar problems. After a lot of struggling I exercise regularly now but i still haven't added that five minute morning Ab blast i keep promising myself, or the evening stretching & meditation. I just... get lazy or something.
Look at my profile and click "topics" and look at the "simple mini habits for changing your life" topic. I don't know how to link it here but there's a link to a pretty good article there. I could really relate to it in how I got started exercising regularly.
Know that feeling... I would love to motivate you ! We can do it together ! ;)
I know the feeling. It may just be a case of that scary first step. You just need to start so you can get the momentum going. I'd suggest start with an extremely easy workout like ' office neck stretches' just to get moving at all.. I promise you'll automatically want to the next workout on your own.
Follow me if you'd like more support :)
Btw, I go through the same things, look around you, everyone does, working out, at work, in life, aren't we all trying to find balance and consistency? It's going to take some work and encouragement!
Thanks everyone ! I am doing better this week. Only thing holding me back now is this awful cold I got ☺ I should be back up and working out soon
Take a month off from everything...go on holidays...do what u love most ..do something new something thrilling..adventurous sports...forget about the world for few weeks ..u will feel fresh and then u can come back with rejuvinated energy and focused mind...n yes start yoga in daily routine dt will help as well...good luck
My immediate thought is depression. Look into yoga, meditation and mindfulness. If it's a milder depression you can work your way through it on your own. If this continues, you should seek medical help and therapy. There are also herbal remedies that can help giving you more energy. Vitamin D and potassium are essential for both physical and mental wellbeing and strength.
