I’m demotivated

When we slip from our routines, when we ‘fall off the wagon’, miss our workout, overeat, miss something out, sleep in, basically run out of steam, our conditioned response is to fight it, dig in, toughen-up and push harder.

That resistance leads us to fall further, the negative energy where we are fighting what is leads to further demotivation.

If we choose, however, to accept that we are a little tired, or demotivated, or suffering a deeper internal mental turmoil, then the letting go brings a break in the cycle, it allows us to breathe, it allows us to relax and just go with the flow of it.

Usually when we ‘hit the buffers’ it is a sign to stop, to relax, to change our routine, to just go with it. That way we can move on instead of continuing the battle with it and the struggle only gets tougher.

If we trust out feelings, then we will know that the mind is troubled and causing this demotivation, that is the point to accept these feelings, identifying them allows us to become conscious and present, it allows us to detach from these mental struggles that have brought the fatigue, the struggle, the lack of motivation.

Let go, accept, breathe and stop fighting…peace will come and motivation will return to us now.
