    1. Read motivational books

    Read an inspiring story. Hype yourself up with a pleasantly generic pep-talk.

      2. Post your achievements on social media

      Sharing your success is important. It shows that you respect and appreciate your good fortune, and the efforts of your work. Furthermore, it’s addictive. Being able to embrace public recognition (without appearing indulgent) is a reward that will not only raise your confidence and self-esteem, but will bolster your desire for future success and make you want to do it again. And again. Consequently, you’ll always be on the lookout for new ways to succeed.

          4. Take a walk

          Get some fresh air and pump some blood through your system. Your body will release endorphins, which is great because you’ll feel refreshed and motivated, not to mention you’ll feel better about yourself by the end of the day.

            5. Eat healthy

            Eating good food doesn’t just benefit your body. It rejuvenates and energizes the mind. After refreshing your brain with a healthy fruit salad, you’ll most likely want to put it to good use and tick off some goals–so grab a fork. Fulfill your productive potential. Eat smart; be smart.

              6. Cut off digital distractions

              Disable Facebook. Hide your phone. Enable programs like Self Control, which exist to eliminate distracting networks like Youtube and Facebook (or whatever particular sites you feel may be hindering your progress) by temporarily blocking access to those specific URLs. Social media feeds procrastination. Unless you’re using social media to tell everyone about your new job promotion or the killer raise you’ve just been offered, then take a break from it.

                A good work environment will encourage productivity. Make sure you have a sufficient study space, in which you feel you can truly accomplish tasks. If motivation won’t find you, find it. Immerse yourself in productivity, and success will subsequently follow.
