Our focus at PsychDIETry is to explore and share ideas, techniques, trends, developments, scams and the like that consider the mind in achieving diet goals. We recently discovered a blog (link below) with some excellent content and analysis of personal motivation.
Most of us go through periods of low energy, low output, and a general lack of motivation. While in these times it seems impossible or daunting at best to maintain our focus and apply ourselves, achieving goals requires sustained effort and continuous output.
Battling this condition requires knowledge of the issue (self awareness), a set of tools and techniques to counter the effect, and establishing a new set of habits that come in to play on a daily basis.
The article includes notes on taking action, finding motivating tools that fit your own personality, living healthfully, and advocates stepping out of your “fog of dreams into the light of reality”. There are also a number of links and references to useful source material. For example the Sedona Method is recommended as an approach to releasing blocked energy that stands in the way of action and motivation.
As always, there is no magic bullet. Achieving goals is an incremental process that includes progress, set backs, and a long-term investment of time and energy. The rewards, we know, are many. Enjoy!
