How do you motivate yourself to "get up and go" in the morning?
Once you get over sixty years old, your bladder does the job for you!
Just think about all the possibilities and surprises a new day can bring. Plus, a good breakfast and some yoga early in the morning always make me feel ready for a long day ahead.
I am a happy person, staying home now, retired from 25 yr Teaching Career, I am allowed to enjoy each day keeping our home as spotless as I can work to make it that way. I am motivated on automatic. I enjoy Facebook, Writing on Hubpages, checking emails and researching all kinds of Musically related subject. I enjoy Country Music, Jackson Brownies music and my home is my life. I also walk for around an hour a day which is very enjoyable and good for my health. Motivation to walk is directly related to the bathroom scales..This is my big thing to work on, those 10 ils that crept up on me! Motivation is not hard to find for me. Coffee is my big luxury! 2 pots a day!
I wake up in the mornings spending a few moments on the hub pages before I head off to work in the real world. Keep on hubbing
i tell myself that why i am alive, just to sleep.?. no i want to do something different..this boosts me to wake up
Well let's see there is coffee and then there's more coffee, and then there's 5 dogs at my bed saying it's time to eat, 2 horses banging or hoof stomping saying the same, 2 1/2 acres, my favorite part of checking HP and that makes my heart go pitter patter in the morning (along with the bladder thing) lol
Yup i motivate myself to go for a morning walk in the morning but after some time my laziness & my extreme love with my sleep overcomes all my motivation then i see to my bed and go to sleep and wait for further motivation...
Getting my coffee ready, and wondering how God is going to use me today as a caregiver, or whatever He has for me to do.
As a christian, it's another opportunity to walk with Jesus and enjoy another day spent with him, keenly aware of his presence in my life throughout the entire day. His love for me and my love for him are all the motivation I need to get up. To live is Christ, to die is gain. Phil 1:21
I love to wake up early to see the beautiful smiles from my family that brighten the day!
I believe that whether we are happy or sad, we still need to face through the day. So why not be happy and the day will always be wonderful!
Everyone should live the day with a positive outlook. Then this will be a better world tomorrow for everyone.
It sounds funny buti always tell myself the story of the turtle and the scorpion, and decide that I don't want to be the scorpion today.
Well, first, I'm actually a morning person, so I'm filled with energy and things to do in my head, so I usually feel like getting up and doing it... But even if it's one of those days... I have my kids, that crawl in our bed in the morning with lots of kisses to go around and smiles and that's motivation enough...
Knowing that I'm blessed with another day and wanting to enjoy every bit of it,because tommorow is never promised.
When others are reliant on my promptness.
Prior to joining a carpool, I was a champion snooze-hitting sleeping-inner. Now, I feel like I have no choice and just get up as soon as the alarm starts buzzing (even if I only had 6 hours of sleep). I don't know if this would work for everyone, but it certainly works for myself, a compulsive-arrive-on-time-to-an-appointment person.
coffee and my email. its always to get up in the morning with things that you look forward too. Good morning
I love listening to music.
However, the most of time I spend my first minutes by playing games on my mobile phone.
I don't. I stay in pajamas until noon.
KIDDING!!! Like others have said, it's the bladder thing first, then coffee, email and looking forward to writing that gives me motivation. Every day is something new!
Great question ElleBee. This year has been a true test for me and also the reason I get up and go in the morning. It started with a trip I took to South Africa in February. While the trip was amazing - going on Safari's, visiting Robben's island, etc - we visited several villages and just to see those people get up everyday and put a smile on their face in the poverty they are living in Is my biggest motivation. Also, after being unemployed - my faith has grown. They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I don't undersestimate or take for granted any blessing I have and that is my motivation. With my faith - I believe God is not done with me yet and something big and truly amazing is about to happen in my life -so that is what motivates me to get up and go.
I tell myself, " Get up and go" then I start to move my body. Then before you know it, I'm gone.

How do you motivate yourself to exercise everyday?I did my 3rd day of 20min exercises. I want to move up to 40-60minutes a day, but I can't find the motivation to do it. I will start of strong by soon as I get to 15 minutes I rush through the last 5 just to get it done and over with. I use music...

I've had a fairly prolific start to my Hubpages writing career, publishing 13 hubs in my first 10 days (including a few over 2000 words) out of the excitement of starting something new. But as the 'newness' starts to wear off I can feel the momentum starting to slow already.I want to try to keep up...
