Do you ever have those days where you wake up feeling less motivated, less confident, and just generally low on energy? We all do. Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint exactly what caused it, but often it's the result of certain habits or patterns we have fallen into that affect our mindset and energy levels and make us actually feel this way.
So, how can we overcome these moments and regain our confidence and momentum when this happens?
Here are some tips:
1. Track your patterns
The first step is to recognize the patterns that are consistent with your low energy days. Start by journaling or taking notes in your calendar and tracking how you feel on different days. Score your energy, confidence, and belief in yourself out of 10, and be mindful of what you did the day before, in the morning, or throughout the day. You might notice that certain habits or activities throw you off, such as drinking alcohol, watching certain types of shows, or having conversations that make you feel down about yourself. Once you recognize these patterns, you can work to eliminate them or find ways to manage them.
2. Find your go-to process
When you wake up feeling less motivated, what are the things that get your vibe up? What are the things that reset your energy and get you excited? Do you have a go-to process that reminds you of your why, your dreams, and your purpose? Maybe it's exercising, putting on your favorite music, or going for a car ride like the author does. Figure out what works for you and make it a part of your routine.
3. Remind yourself of your accomplishments
Another powerful tool is to create a list of all the things you've accomplished in your life, no matter how big or small. It's like a brag sheet that reminds you of your awesomeness and helps you shift your mindset from doubts and insecurities to confidence and belief in yourself. Read through it whenever you need a boost.
By being mindful of your patterns, finding your go-to process, and reminding yourself of your accomplishments, you can conquer the world with confidence and find your mojo even on those tough days. Don't let negative habits or patterns hold you back from living your best life.
