Motivational Quotes To Ignite Your Productivity And Mood

Motivational Quotes To Ignite Your Productivity And Mood

IMAGE: Morgan Sessions

You know those days where you feel stuck, unmotivated, or stressed out? If you are human, then the answer to this question is most likely a big, fat YES! And what do we do when this happens? Most of the time, we resort to external pick-me-ups such as unhealthy food or retail therapy. Unfortunately, these solutions are temporary and usually come with nasty consequences for our health and wallet.  

The most effective solution to a down day is a simple mental shift. We usually get into a rut when we are out of balance or moving away from our true values and it is our personal duty to counteract this negative movement by shifting the mind towards what is important to us.

This is where the power of motivational quotes comes in.

By reading inspiring quotes, your brain starts to focus on your personal goals. Ponder on the quote long enough and you will experience massive jolt in your energy level, creativity and productivity. Being creatures of habit, the more you do this, the more automatic the mental shift becomes. 

Here is what to do:

  • Print or write the following quotes—or your own favourites—on small, individual pieces of paper
  • Place quotes in a big jar or box and place it on a table that you pass frequently
  • On those crap-tastic days, grab a quote out of the jar and apply it to your day
  • If a quote resonates with you, stick it permanently somewhere that you look constantly (washroom mirror, anyone?)
  • Reap the benefits on your wellbeing
