Are your daily routines leading you toward your long-term goals?

Most of us have experienced lack of motivation or exhaustion at one point or another. It’s easy for anyone to get stuck in a rut! It’s easier to lay in bed at night and imagine amazing scenarios, but why do you only imagine them? Life has no directions to live by nor are you promised a new day. So why not do it? Why not make your imagination into reality? Here’s a list of tips that can help you stay motivated.


(Of course, the list is going to include tips on taking care of your body. If you’re not taking care of the one place you truly live in, how do you expect to stay focused or energized toward your goals?)

  • Figure out the amount of sleep that’s right for you (Most people say 8 hours, but every body is different. Go with whatever makes you feel energized and well rested.)
  • Provide your body with needed nutrients (Remember 20% of calories go to your brain.)
  • Water (Your body is made up of 50-75% water, depending on your body type, so you must replenish and stay hydrated.)
  • Eat at least five meals a day (Depriving yourself will lead to overeating or turning to foods containing processed sugar that have no nutritional value for your body. An eating schedule could look like this: breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner.)
  • Be aware of who you surround yourself with (There will be many people who don’t understand your drive, those aren’t your people. It’s a big world and there are people who will respect your goals and build you up.)
  • Make a list of why you want to accomplish your goal
  • Set small goals & big goals (Small goals should lead to big goals. For example, if you want abs eating your recommended amounts of protein, fats, and carbs throughout the day.)
  • Put these goals everywhere (Hang them up on your bedroom door, type them on the notepad of your phone, or even magnet them to the fridge.)
  •  Read these goals constantly (Read them when you wake up, throughout the day, and before you go to bed.)
  •  Get up earlier than normal (Wake up thirty or forty minutes earlier than normal and get all of your dreaded work out of the way.)
  •  Journal (Write about what made you happy, sad, or mad. Acknowledge what causes your feelings and only do what makes you feel good.)
  •  Follow inspirational people or quotes 
  •  Get fresh air (Stretch, take a walk! No need to sit cramped up inside all day.)
  •  Smile (You woke up today.)
  •  Just do it now (You’re going to have to sooner or later.)
  •  Know it all starts now
  •  Dive into the Word (Remember if you don’t fulfill all your goals, Jesus still loves you and maybe it wasn’t in his plan.)
