Each and every one of us have those days when we’re just not feeling it. We’re mentally and physically drained and the last thing we want to do is crawl out of bed and tackle the day.

1. Take a break–you deserve it.

The only way we can perform at an optimal level is to create time for rest. The moment you know you can’t take any time off is usually when you need it most. So take that long-delayed vacation, and return to your business with renewed enthusiasm.

2. Review your goals first thing in the morning and pick one thing

Sometimes life just gets in the way and distracts us from accomplishing goals or tasks. To stay on track, review your goals when you first wake up in the morning and start working on one of your most important goals, and put a plan in place to achieve that one goal.


Find others that can encourage you and make them a regular part of your day. Prioritize enjoying your favorite podcasts, videos, books, or short devotions as long as they help you get started on your own work!

4. Have fun

We all have those everyday tasks or chores that are boring, mundane, and dull. I mean who really wants to clean the dishes or writing blog post after blog post. The thing is, you can have some fun with these otherwise uneventful tasks.

5. Cut your to-do list in half

Lengthy lists are roadblocks that prevent us from achieving success. Instead of going forward, these lists hold us back. Cut your to-do lists in at least half so that you can focus on the most completing items first. Some studies show that if you have more than 7 tasks on a list you will do none of them, yet if you only have 3 items listed, the likelihood to finish all three is high.

6. Take a break

Between work and your family, you’re constantly on the go. This becomes a problem after a while because you’re exhausted and burnt out. Even though you believe that you don’t have the time to take a vacation, the least you can do is take a day or two to decompress. It recharges your batteries and gives you a new outlook on everything that’s going on in your life.

7. Celebrate the little wins, no matter how small

Little wins may seem like just that–little. Celebrating these wins can help to create positive habits. You break the inertia of mediocrity by teaching everyone around you how to win. They get the chance to bask in that emotion.
