Feel like a zombie at work? 7 ways to ignite motivation

Struggling to find motivation at work and feeling like a useless zombie?

If so, we’ve all been there. Those days when you spend hours doing one simple task or find yourself sitting at your desk constantly feeling frustrated or annoyed.  

If you’re struggling with motivation know this: 

It’s normal to go through phases of unproductivity, so don’t panic!

No doubt you’re someone who’s usually pretty driven and wants to do well (you wouldn’t be trying to find a solution to your motivation issue if you weren’t!).

Just because you’re unmotivated though it doesn’t mean you’re a failure.

Lots of things can impact your motivation:

  • Change in lifestyle
  • New responsibility (babies and pets!)
  • Lack of sleep
  • Unhealthy habits (too much sugar, caffeine, no exercise and not enough greens!)
  • A difficult boss
  • Arguments with loved ones
  • Not feeling listened to at work
  • Feeling like there’s no progression
  • Not knowing the purpose behind your work

And much more!

Your life, emotions and physical health is not a straight line, so it makes sense that your productivity ebbs and flows. 

BUT, saying that, there’s still ways you can get yourself into gear when you’re not “feeling it”.

This week on Not Your Forever Job I’m sharing 7 ways to ignite your motivation.
