Momentum is an interesting thing. You can build it up quickly to where you become unstoppable but you can also lose it very quickly.
What do you do when you find yourself losing momentum?
1. Go back to your goals. Remember why you wake up early in the morning and go to bed late at night.
2. Hit the gym. Just doing something as simple as working out for one hour will get you that energy back that you have lost.
3. Drink lots of water. You might spend a lot of time in the loo (toilet) especially in the winter but you will find that even drinking 500mls of cold water will left your spirits ten fold.
4. Watch what you eat. Try to plan each day so that you are not running around eating not so healthy food. Also, cut down your sugar content. I tell you from experience that that sugar content is probably slowing you down more than anything else.
5. Don't worry about perfectionism. Don't worry that it is not exactly what you think it is going to be. The fact that you have got something out there means that you can improve on it at a later date. If you just sit there and procrastinate then you are going to have all sorts of problems.
6. Take a day off where you don't do anything remotely related to what you are trying to achieve. You sit back and do something completely different to what you usually do. Go for a hike (tramp for New Zealand readers) or play tennis or do something that you don't do often.
There you go. There are 6 ideas that you can use if you get into a problem with your momentum.
I think that the most important thing is to realise that you have lost momentum and to acknowledge it and to not beat yourself up about it too much. You got to realise that it happens to the best of them and the best thing is to get back on the horse as quickly as possible.
