When you are STUCK at home, staying motivated to do ANYTHING starts to become an intense game of MENTAL WAREFARE. It is SO EASY to slack off and fall into REALLY BAD HABITS and I am talking from experience. I’ve been working from home for years and growing up I always thought it would be the MOST AMAZING thing ever. And don’t get me wrong, it certainly has its perks, but after a while the lines start to blur between “work time” and “relax time”. It’s almost like when you leave the house you compartmentalize different parts of your life and certain surroundings stimulate different outcomes.
For example, when you get to your job, your brain KNOWS it’s time to WORK. When you get to the gym your brain KNOWS it’s time to LIFT. Then when you get home, your brain knows it’s time to RELAX. But now, all that’s out the window and I know A LOT of you are already starting to experience a bit of depression, cabin fever and demotivation. Whatever the case may be, if you don’t put an end to it NOW, it will continue to go downhill FAST! So here are my 5 tips to stay motivated to keep training while you are stuck at home.
