Winter is coming, which means less daylight and colder temperatures. It’s common for people to feel more tired and less motivated during the winter months, which can negatively impact their performance.
Staying motivated during the winter months will require a little extra effort, but luckily winter only lasts for so long. With these tips below, you should be able to stay productive and motivated during winter.
Reset Your ‘Why’
Write a list of reasons you want to stay active even when you do not want to go out in the colder weather. Exercise is good for us, reminding yourself of your core motivator can keep you pushing forward, even on tough or low energy days.
Schedule Time for Hobbies
If you are working through a winter slump, it is easy to lose motivation for hobbies you enjoy, which throws off our balance and burns us out. Schedule fun activities you love into your day to make time for them, which will help you improve your mood and maintain productivity.
Go Outside in The Morning
Take 3-5 minutes out of your morning routine to go outside. It will wake you up and increase your energy for the day. The sunlight in the morning will jumpstart your brain to be more alert throughout your day, and it is proven that your sleep will benefit as well, as it helps set and maintain our circadian rhythm.
Make the Best out of The Weather
Look for ways to stay active in the winter. Try something new, like skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, or walking in the snow. Staying energetic and positive throughout winter will maintain your motivation in the winter.
It can be easy to let the winter “blues” take over when it is colder outside, but you get to dictate if your winter will be enjoyable and productive or unmotivated and unproductive.
