Health Tip: Getting Motivated

Last Updated: August 20, 2019.

(HealthDay News) -- Everyone feels lack of motivation at some point, and it doesn't necessarily represent a mental health issue, says the Mental Health Foundation.

From meeting up with friends to participating in a hobby, sometimes it can be difficult to find the motivation to get involved.

To help overcome lack of motivation, the Mental Health Foundation suggests:

  • Break tasks into manageable chunks.
  • Write down each positive thing you go through during the day.
  • Give yourself credit for the small things you do.
  • Make some time for yourself.
  • Be gentle on yourself.
  • Be present in the moment.
  • Ask for help when needed.
