Lacking Motivation, and Counseling Your Drive

Lacking Motivation, and Counseling Your Drive

Life gets stressful pretty quick. There are the everyday struggles, not to mention those inopportune things that can result in your mind and body needing rest.

When the Day to Day Gets to Hard

Marriage, kids, job… it can all add up to stress when the structure goes a tad haywire. Remember to take time to breathe each hour. Here’s a little trick that will release the good brain chemicals, providing you with energy, health, and determination.

Take a deep breath. Hold for a second, then exhale for five seconds. Repeat this five times.

Keep a positive mindset…You’ve got this!

When Sickness Strikes

Falling ill puts a huge damper on life. With a simple cold, we have learned to fight through the discomfort and give whatever percentage we can give. However, if something more serious is going on, there is no doubt rest is a must. Our bodies are smart, so we tend to have bursts of energy throughout the aliment, but the body will force us to rest when needed. Unlike our brains, the body doesn’t care about deadlines.

Motivation severely diminishes with illness. With long-term sicknesses we can also fall into depression or self-judgement on not being able to complete tasks like we once were able. Don’t beat yourself up. A tough battle is going on within you, so don’t feel bad if you need to take rest time more often. If depression hits and you can’t find your drive anymore, it’s okay to seek counseling from others about how to handle the struggle.

Here’s a few ways to help stay motivated during illness,

-Remember to count your blessings- Appreciate what feels better than yesterday. If we start to think about the bad stuff, it’s a fact, you’re going to feel worse.

-Find something that makes you laugh- Laughter truly is the best medicine…science has proven it.

-Rest and Meditate- There is time for rest, which means shutting everything else off. Other times, meditation might be the way to go, so your body and mind can direct you on what tasks are important while leaving stress behind.

Tired of Rejection

Rejection is a fact of life. Some handle it much better than others. But don’t let rejection stop your motivation. Most times, we need to prove we are worthy of our destiny. Have you tried and tired, but you keep continuing to fail? Do you feel defeated? Well, it’s time to figure it out. Do you need a rest to recharge your drive? Or have you lost your focus? Are you ready to give up and move on to something else? Or should you let that task go all together?

The best advice I was given—To become successful, you must first fail.

It’s true. Failure has been a part of all our lives since we came out of the womb. As babies, we learned success when we first failed at talking, walking, and eventually became decent at being human.

Don’t let failure stop you. Failure can change you, it’s true, but it should never stop you. If you feel you need a little extra kick to remember how fabulous you are or need someone to help you rediscover your drive, try therapy online.

You are incredible… Maybe not at everything, but you are the best at something. Focus on your health; body and mind. Motivation will be found when you and your soul are well-rested.

Focusing on a Healthy Body Rather than a Fashionable Body

Focusing on a Healthy Body Rather than a Fashionable Body

People have been concerned about their bodies for years. Think of all of the times that you’ve heard someone fret about their weight, their body shape, their height, their muscle mass, their fat distribution, their skin tone or endless other supposed “problems” with their appearance. This isn’t all too surprising. There are numerous industries out there that rely on people’s lack of self-confidence and self-acceptance to thrive: the beauty industry, the fashion industry, the plastic surgery industry… the list goes on. Sure, we may all have areas of ourselves that we want to improve on. But rather than focusing on achieving impossible beauty standards set out by the media, how about we focus on our health, fitness, and wellbeing instead? Sure, you can go to a surgeon and go under the knife to achieve a certain look. But it’s not going to help you live a healthier and more fulfilled life. It’s time that we start focusing on having a healthy body rather than a fashionable body. Some of the most common body concerns tend to revolve around fat and weight. So, for now, let’s focus on cellulite and extremes of weight.

Cellulite tends to be a problem that people focus on with appearance in mind. These small dimples are often criticised as unattractive. However, you should be less focused on the aesthetics of cellulite and more concerned with its causes. Myths make out that cellulite is the result of toxins or being overweight. But there is no evidence to support this. In fact, it’s not necessarily indicative of an unhealthy body. It’s more to do with fat distribution and how your fat is stored. So stop worrying!

Being Underweight or Obese


We all have different body shapes. We distribute our fat in different ways and have different figures. Some of us will naturally be very slim. Some of us will happen to be a little larger. However, extremes of weight on either end of the scale are to be avoided. If you are underweight or obese, it’s important to know that you are opening yourself up to a whole host of health problems that could easily be avoided nine times out of ten. Being underweight could result in malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies, anemia, osteoporosis, decreased immune functioning, increased risk of complication during surgeries, fertility issues, or growth and development issues. Obesity can come hand in hand with increased blood pressure, type two diabetes, heart disease, strokes, sleep apnoea, fatty liver disease, and kidney disease. All of this things should be actively avoided. If you fear that you’re underweight or obese, visit your health professional or dietician and ask for a check-up. They will be able to assess your BMI and give you a plan for a healthy balanced diet and exercise regime that will help you to fall into the parameters of a healthier weight.


These are just two areas of our bodies that we tend to focus a lot of our attention on. If you have any further concerns to do with your body or how it looks, make sure to do plenty of research. In some cases, you may be worrying needlessly. In others, you may have a few changes to make to ensure that your body functions to the best of its ability.
