How to Get Motivated: 22 Tips for Working Out, Cleaning, More #LivingSpace

How to Get Motivated to Do All the Things Medically reviewed by Timothy J. Legg, Ph.D., CRNP - written by Cindy Lamothe

How to get motivated is hard, but we’ve got tips and tricks to help you stay two steps ahead of procrastination.


Building small rewards or celebrations into the process can help you achieve your goals.


Set a housecleaning playlist to help make the hours go faster.


Exercise regularly

While it’s tough getting started, finding ways to give yourself a push when you need it can help you achieve your goals, whether they involve training for a big event or blowing off some steam with mindful movement.


Just be sure to listen to your body - everyone needs rest days and occasional comfort food.


Make it a game

To build up motivation, high performance coach Shefali Raina suggests reframing the task in the context of a game and connecting your actions to rewards or penalties.


For example, “if you want to feel motivated to exercise, you could commit to a game structure where if you exercise three times a week you get to treat yourself to something you enjoy,” she explains.


“But if you exercise less than three times, maybe you give up something you value.”


Just make sure you’re still leaving yourself space to take days off as your mind and body needs.


Make your goals easier to achieve

Clinical psychologist Steve Levinson, PhD, suggests making it as easy as possible to do the specific things you know you should do.
