Dr. Matt Morgan, in his First Habit blog, reveals the strategies to motivating yourself when your willpower is low. Read on for more information from his article.
- Our willpower often disappears in the middle of working towards a goal, but you can work in a system to help you sustain it
- When trying to build up a new habit, start by remembering your why, what motivated you in the first place, if that doesn’t work let yourself start afresh and rejuvenated
- Start with small steps that will reward you with a dopamine hit; this will steadily help you achieve harder tasks and work with someone who will hold you accountable to help you reinforce your new habit
