5 ways to get motivated on procrastination days

There are days when you don’t feel like getting out of your bed, when you know that time is running but still you can’t help it. These kind of days are the worst ones, as you end up getting in pointless arguments and fights with your friends, family and colleagues. Going back to bed feeling nothing but disappointed, everyone has those days right?

This time could be very dangerous for you, it could last for few days to as long as an year. The most difficult part is to get out of your negative thoughts that have been overpowering you and get back on the right track. Those who have the right direction get out of it more easily than those who are still struggling in choosing the right path. I have been there, now and then, and finally have discerned how to tackle this situation. 

Here are five things that I feel you could do to get motivated towards achieving your life goals:

Watch motivational movies

If you’re a movie person, this is the best way to deal with procrastination. It might take 3 or 4 hours of your day but still is far better than wasting your entire day in overthinking. I recently watched a movie called “Nil batey sannata” and I must say that this movie is one of the most motivational movies that I have seen so far. Swara Bhaskar, as always has done a great job in portraying a hardworking mother who just wants her daughter’s bright future and does all she could do to make that happen. 

If you’re not into serious motivational movies, let me tell you almost any movie can motivate you if you relate your life with it. Even Harry Potter series sometimes make me motivated because at the end of the day, all you want is to get out of the negativity that’s been surrounded and movies do a great great job in taking you out of your negative zone.

Read/Watch success stories and autobiographies of successful people 
    Getting motivated with someone else’s life who was once at the same level as you are now is very impactful as it gives you a hope that if they’ve done it then you could too. Also some excerpts of their lives could be taken as an example of how to deal with certain situations. 

    All the success stories are initially filled with failures that these famous people had gone through to reach at a place where they are now. It takes a lot of patience and will power to withstand failures and keep going no matter how many times life challenges you. It’s not their success that’s motivating but their journey from starting from scratch to reaching enormous heights.

    Learn about the people whose lives are relatable with yours. If you want to be a cricketer read about Sachin’s life stories or perhaps watch MS Dhoni’s biography. If you’ve interest in entrepreneurship learn about the lives of Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates. Who knows, perhaps you could be the next one in line?

    Read newspapers, GK books, magazines, current affairs, etc
      This is one of best ways of making your restless days into productive ones. As all you need to do is grab a cup of coffee and read about some interesting facts or news. Trust me, you would end up feeling good about yourself, as you would learn something new. Knowledge is one of the greatest possessions that one could have. If you are learning something new everyday even if you’re not doing anything else, then my friend, you are still making your day productive because you’ve something extra to take with you. 

      I have this book of General Knowledge from Lucent’s which is my saviour on the days I don’t feel doing anything else. Last weekend I read about world history, starting from Chinese civilization to the end of World War 2 and I could not explain how good I felt on knowing about so many great facts. Who knew I would enjoy reading history one day?

      I would suggest this to everyone as this way is one of the fool proof ways of getting motivated plus you get some extra knowledge and what’s the harm in that, right?

      Reading motivational books

      This way may be a cliche but still the most effective one. Reading books and completing them is itself a task. So on the days of procrastination, if you find a book that you can stick to, can itself improve your dedication and sitting. Also if that book is motivational, you might end up feeling more confident and inspired after finishing that book. 

      I recently read, “You can win” by Shiv Khera which offers a lot many values and ethics that one must imbibe to be positive in life. It mainly focuses on how to build a positive attitude and personality. 

      A positive person is always happy and a good mood always helps and pushes us to achieve great things. All in all I believe, if you’re happy and positive, you will never procrastinate deliberately.

      Eat healthy and take sound sleep

      You might be thinking that we’ve turned to a wrong direction but surprisingly, having a wholesome sleep does help in bulldozing procrastination. Chances are that your brain or body is just tired which is why a good sleep and diet is necessary to refresh your body. If you feel like sleeping for 10 hours, sleep! Sleep as much as you feel like. Sleep until you’re not satisfied, do not feel bad and keep thinking that you couldn’t do anything productive because you slept all day. Overthinking actually hampers a sound sleep, also you end up getting demotivated. When you wake up after a good sleep, you’ll feel fresh and energized.

      Sleeping is necessary to give rest to your mind, but always remember one thing, "Win the morning, and you win the day". If you have started your day productive by pushing yourself to get out of bed and get going, then your entire day will be spent doing something fruitful.

      Eat green vegetables and natural beverages as intaking grains make you lazy. So try to add more of veggies and cut off breads from your diet to get charged for work. Besides, it would also help in making you lean (fringe benefits, you know). 

      These were my go-to ideas to overcome procrastination. Let me know if it helped you a bit.
