Still in the post-holiday blues and looking for ways to get out of your rut and stay motivated? Check out these ways to kick procrastination and stay motivated.
Start Your Day Right
Feeling productive starts with your first several acts of the day. As soon as your alarm goes off, get up instead of pressing snooze. Before you do anything, make your bed. It makes your space look neater, and it will set your day up for success. It only takes three minutes, so make it happen!
If you are feeling stressed about your daily tasks, the best way to crank them out and be efficient is by setting a power hour. First, write down what you think you can accomplish in an hour. Keep it realistic. Put your phone up, turn off the television, and put all of your efforts into these tasks. With one hour without distractions, you will be shocked to see what you can make happen.
Set Weekly Task Goals
At the beginning of the week, sit down and make a list of what you would like to accomplish for the week. Not only will it help you stay on track, but once you finish a task, you will feel so accomplished that you can mark it off your to-do list.
Don’t Mix Social and Work
If you are having a problem staying attentive at work, chances are, your phone is probably playing a huge factor in that. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snap Chat are huge time stealers. When you are at work or in work hours at home, set boundaries. Delete the app if you have to. Keep social media time out of work and watch your day become so much more productive.

Treat Yourself to a Break
With heavy work loads, it is also helpful to take breaks. Although, make sure you keep them meaningful and short and don’t scroll through social media or turn on the television. Doing these things will make your 15 minute break a 60 minute one. Take a walk or go grab a bottle of water or a cup of coffee at work. If you work from home, water the plants or check the mail.
