Question of the Day: What Do You Do When You’re Unmotivated

source: bushpig

When I’m feeling unmotivated, I tend to take that as a sign that I need a break. I’m a fairly motivated person in general, and I’ve found that pushing through unmotivation — although sometimes necessary with deadlines and responsibilities — just leaves me worn out and more unmotivated, while taking a break usually leaves me refreshed and much more productive.

Obviously this doesn’t work in all situations, but I think it’s one way that I avoid burnout, even with everything on my plate, and I’m thankful that I have that flexiblity!

Today I want to know…

What do you do when you’re feeling unmotivated?

Do you have a secret for getting motivated when you’re not feelin’ it?

Have you ever tried taking a break rather than pushing through?

Do you consider yourself a fairly motivated person in general, or is it something you have to work for?

Looking forward to reading your answers!
