Motivate Yourself to Try Something New

Motivate Yourself to Try Something New

Check out these seven ideas for starting a new hobby or an exciting fresh project.

If you feel like you’ve been in a rut lately — same stuff, different day — why not search for something special to give your day a little twist? We all get a little burnt out from time to time, so varying up your schedule (and going off autopilot once in a while) might be just what you need to shake things up.

1. Feel Motivated
Even when you feel tired and stressed, if you tell yourself you’re up for your new adventure, your energy and enthusiasm will quickly return. Sometimes the only person you have to convince to get motivated enough to start is you!

2. Improve Existing Habits
Even small but enjoyable changes in other aspects of your life can make a difference — a relaxing, rich scent in the house, a new piece of framed art or a photo to brighten the kitchen or even a dramatic hairstyle change!

3. Have Fun
Build up your enthusiasm and energy levels by listing things you love doing and work some of these into your week or month.

4. Set Your Goal
Whether it’s about home, family, work or self-improvement, make your goal a real challenge. Research what you need to do, including considering whom else has achieved that goal before you and what qualities they had that helped. Itemize the steps towards your goal.

5. Set a Time to Work on Your Goal
Committing to a set time to work on your project allows you to start organizing the rest of your life around it.

6. Be Creative
When brainstorming, come up with 10 ideas instead of five or six — some of the ideas might not be as strong as others, but it helps you develop lateral ways of approaching a task and can lead in new directions.

7. Assess Your Achievements
Judge your progress against your previous work rather than “competing” with others. Make a note of how far you’ve come by always keeping track of achievements along the way — whether in a diary, on sticky notes above your desk or even photos on your fridge door.
