Ways to stay motivated!

Here are some tips:

  • Regularly review your goals and progress. Seeing progress is a great motivator in itself, and also improves your self-esteem.


  • Continue to set new goals. Think about what you want to achieve next week, next month, and next year. Tackle one goal at a time so you don’t feel overwhelmed.


  • Keep the momentum up. It takes up to 3 months to develop a new habit, so keeping the momentum and routine helps it feel more automatic over time.


  • Find mentors – a mentor is someone who is experienced in the habit you want to change. Finding social or support groups with the same interest can help you find a mentor.


  • Surround yourself with positive people. Positive friends and family enhance your positive self-talk, which also helps to manage the symptoms of depression and anxiety.


  • Use exercise as one of your daily goals to improve your mental health.

When living with depression, negative thoughts and emotions can already have you feeling detached from life in general, with getting out of bed to go to work being a major accomplishment in itself, so on top of that, trying to stay motivated at work can make your job feel almost unbearable and challenging, even when you are at your best.

Depression not only reduces your capacity for dealing with everything, especially stressors but also reduces your motivation, making it more challenging to get started on something you need to do. You didn’t choose to feel depressed, and co-workers may not understand why you can’t do something to “feel better.”

However, there are ways to manage feelings of depression, even when negative thoughts bear down on you, this includes:

  • Come to terms with how you are feeling. What may be driving depression for you? Is it a major depressive disorder? Is your depression work-related? Or is something else causing it? It’s not an easy thing to think about or to come to terms with, but important for managing depression at work and elsewhere.


  • Start by focusing on your environment – you may not be able to control everything in your work, but you can often influence your workspace. Often, when our space is cluttered and messy, we too feel like that, so, try to keep your workspace simple, clean, and organized, and perhaps consider mood-boosting features such as pictures, plants, and soft light.


  • Use your downtime for self-care – When you have downtime at work, thoughts can be swirling through your brain, taking a moment for self-care might help you get through. This could be a walk outside, making some tea or splashing your face with cool water in the bathroom, or listening to music. Self-care can provide a break and something that brings you joy to get you through the next few work hours.


  • Keeping work at work and home life at home – Set boundaries between your work life and personal life and try not to blend personal and work issues at one time as it can affect the intensity of both matters. Worrying about what’s going on at home can be distracting while at work. If your home situation or family members are contributing to anxiety and depression, it can be easy to bring those feelings with you to a job.


  • It’s key to find a trusted friend, ideally at work, who can support you through this difficult time. There will be tough days—some that seem nearly impossible—on the road to recovery, and I can’t stress how important it is to have someone to lean on and talk to.
