We need to stay motivated. Find opportunities in this crisis. Build ourselves for a completely different future. Keep learning new things and updating ourselves to adapt to the transformation the world is going to face after this pandemic.

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty. -Winston Churchill

However, 'stay motivated' is easier said than done. It is very obvious to feel a little low, a little tensed with the things going on in our surroundings. To feel as if, there's nothing left to do.

Some of the reasons that can be the cause of demotivation are as follows:

  • Your goals are not clearly set

  • There is no clarity or vision in what you want to do

  • You feel alone and try to avoid people

  • If you are surrounded by negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, or stress

Open up in front of people. Express yourself. Express your ideas. This can make you feel confident and motivated. People will eventually notice your strengths and appreciate you for your good work.

4. Make a chart:

  • Make a chart of your goal and pin that chart in your room.

  • By the end of the day write a note on what you have done to achieve your goal on that day. This will help you to stay motivated and track your success

  • Maintain a journal

Make a promise to yourself that after doing a certain task in time, you will treat yourself. It will help you to boost up your mood and your energy.

Implement the reward system for major tasks that you need to get done. This way, you can be your own reason for your happiness.

No matter how small of a reward you decide to give yourself but make sure that it acts as a stress buster for you.

You can also do this for your co-workers and friends. You can reward your co-workers so that they will also feel motivated in doing their work and you will also feel satisfied with what you have done.
