If there is anything I struggle with, it's finding the motivation to finish something I've started. And not just the dishes, cleaning my house or a Model Workout training. It's pretty much with every aspect of my life. That must be an accomplishment on it's own...Right? At least I'm consistent with my demotivation! But I too suck it up to get stuff done and with these 5 motivational tips it's almost impossible to not be motivated!

#tip 1 Get moving!
We all know working out is good for you. When you exercise, your body releases chemicals and hormones that make you feel better, both physically and mentally. Walking back and forth to the fridge to stuff yourself with food doesn't count as exercising. Stop rewarding yourself with food, there are better ways to do that.

#tip 2 Daily motivation!
Sayings like: 'A day without laughter is a day wasted' might sound kinda corny, but there is some truth in it. If you are going through a rough patch you need to find ways to motivate yourself again. You don't need to cover every wall in your bedroom with motivational quotes, but you should discover what gets you going again.

#tip 3 Live in the now!
Ofcourse it's important to think about your future, but if there are any challenges or opportunities coming your way, go for it! It might be a bit scary to walk away from your intial plan, but you don't want to feel like you missed out on something either.

#tip 4 No slouching!
If you like what you see in the mirror, you'll feel way more confident in everyday life. What I mean by slouching is skipping workouts and making up excuses not to live up to your goals. Discipline and persistency are essential, so don't give in to procrastination.

#tip 5 Stop saying "I can't"
I'm really allergic to people who keep saying I can't. There are so many people who prove differently. In my opinion you're only allowed to say: 'I can't', if you've tried everything in your power to prove yourself wrong. If you weren't able to do it after all, you can still be proud of all the effort you put into it. A new adventure will come your way soon!

PS tip #6 Spread the love
There is nothing more important in the world than love, in any form whatsoever. Loving yourself, the people you are the closest to, but also your pets and the guy at the grocery store. Appreciate it, because you'll only know how important it is until it's gone.
