Motivation to Change Your Life

6 tips to help you get moving


It can be challenging to get going on a new habit or change your life. Your routine is often the biggest obstacle in your way, so how do you break out of your comfort zone? How do you motivate yourself to make these changes and create a new life for yourself?

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to help you get moving without effort.

In this blog post, we’ll explore some helpful tips and tricks that will help you take any step towards changing your life for the better!

Make a plan and be accountable

If you’re looking to make important changes in your life, it’s a good idea to plan ahead. You’ll need to set goals and come up with a plan to get from where you are now to where you want to be.

Also, remember to take responsibility for yourself. Even on chilly, dark mornings, find the determination to get out of bed and start your day. Just like you have to motivate yourself to stick to your plan when other things come up in life.

But you don’t have to do everything by yourself. In fact, if you find a friend or partner who can help you stay accountable and you can do the same for them, it’s a great way to stay on track and make sure you don’t forget about your goals.

Find activities you enjoy

Many people find that just by changing the things they do, they find themselves with new benefits. Find an activity that you enjoy and add more variety to your routine. For example, if you love going to the gym and running, try mixing it up with some classes or volleyball. If you usually love sitting down at the computer, try adding more movement while you’re working.

You can also experiment with switching up your days or weeks so that you’re always doing something different. This will keep your body and mind from feeling like they’ve become stuck in a rut.

Engaging in enjoyable and entertaining activities increases the likelihood of maintaining them – even if it is something new!

Change your environment

Your environment has a huge impact on your habits. So, if you change your environment so it is more conducive to your goals, you can change your habits. Remove all distractions, remove clutter, and keep the place clean, or even change how your environment looks.

Your environment is only a small part of the picture as even if you move to a new place, you’ll still be surrounded by the same people, cars, and structures. It will still be your home, so change the way you live. This could mean picking up some new decor or decorating your home with more vibrant colours. It could also mean making some changes to what you eat, like adding more veggies or fruits to your meals and snacks.

Always remember that you can’t change your entire environment in one day, but if you pick out a few small changes, you can make a big impact that is much easier to maintain. For example, switching off the TV during dinner time or taking a walk outside after dinner. These changes will make the rest of your life seem a little more vivid, and they can help you stay motivated.

Set mini goals to build momentum

While it is great to set a long-term goal that you’ll be working towards for years, you do need to have something to work towards where you can see visible results quicker. By setting mini-goals that you can work towards every day, you can build momentum toward your long-term goals. For example, you could set a goal to run once a week or to complete a certain number of push-ups.

You can have mini-goals related to anything, but if they connect to your bigger goal, then you will find the bigger or long-term goal much easier to reach. For example, if you want to lose weight, you could set a goal of jogging for 30 seconds longer each run you go on.

To top it off, mini-goals help you remember what your overall goals are and make it more enjoyable to work towards them.

Keep a journal of your progress

Keeping a journal can help you stay motivated and to track your progress, which is great for your own accountability. Whether you use your phone or a notebook, you can literally journal about anything – your thoughts, feelings, problems you are facing, solutions from past situations, or purely to keep a log of what you achieved.

You could also be struggling to get to the gym or find yourself having negative feelings about your goals or your progress. Having a journal can create a safe space where you can share those feelings or frustrations rather than bottle them up inside.

If you are feeling unmotivated or in need of a boost of inspiration, your journal can be the boost you need. It really can be your ‘go-to’ tool to help you stay motivated and keep moving forward.

Give yourself a break

This tip might sound a bit corny, but it’s true. Sometimes, we all get caught up in the highs of our new life that we forget to slow down and take a step back. You can’t go from 0 to 100 in one day and keep doing it every day, so take a couple of days off each week, and a week off when you feel like you need to take a break (roughly every quarter of the year). Give yourself the break that you deserve so that you can get back on track and continue your change.

It can also be tough to stay motivated when you don’t feel like it, so look for inspiration in other places. Create a vision board, have a journal, or find inspiration from others who are changing their lives for the better. You can always get back on track if you need to take a break and allow yourself the chance to recharge.

After a break, pick a day when there are no distractions in your life to reconnect to your goals and the reminder of why you want to change your life.


Change can seem daunting, and starting a new habit can be challenging, especially if you’re not sure where to begin. You can’t just will yourself into being happier and healthier. You have to put in the work and find ways to stay motivated. Make a plan, find activities you enjoy, change your environment, and set mini-goals to help build momentum.

These changes won’t happen overnight, so be patient and persistent. Once you start down the path toward a healthier and happier life, you’ll be amazed at how easy it can be!
