We are in week 2 of the New Year. How are you doing? Have you set out some plans and goals for your year? Have you taken action on those plans? Today we want to help you to Live Your Best Life Today By Practicing These Momentum Actions.
You’re on the way, right? You have a goal or two in mind for this year, and you’ve begun working hard to get there. It might be you’re after something personal. It might be you’re concentrating solely on your health and fitness right now. Whatever it is you want, you’re hungry for it. You can’t wait to see the culmination of all this hard work.
…only everything seems to be moving so slow…Can you relate? Well, there is a solution. Check it out:
What you just might be lacking is momentum. Momentum is what pushes you to take action. It speeds you up as you work the steps and keeps you going.
"Actions kills procrastination and creates momentum to keep yourself motivated to keep moving ahead.” - Dani Johnson
So, what do you do when momentum is lagging? Easy. You find ways to build it. Consider these quick tips and ideas to make things happen:
Visualize the Future
Take some time to consider where you’ll be in six months. What about next year or the next five years? Seeing yourself in the future is a really positive way to keep your momentum going. If you can get excited about you of tomorrow, you’ll find yourself fighting to become that person right now.
Get Up and Do Something
It’s so easy to grow stagnant. Rather than binge-watch the latest Netflix sitcom, how about getting up to create some mischief of your own? Go workout, take a walk, or make a real food home-cooked meal from scratch. Do inspirational things to fill you with enthusiasm.
An active mind is a creative mind. The act of learning, even in small increments such as 10-15 minutes a day, will still improve cognitive function. In short, by keeping your mind active, you will pick up momentum.
Act When You Don’t Feel Like It
If you’re waiting for the muse to strike, stop. There will never be a perfect time to work. Momentum means keeping going, even when you don’t feel like it.
Put Your Phone Away
Giving yourself the gift of uninterrupted time does wonders for momentum. By turning off your phone for an hour, you’ll give yourself the freedom to relax, recharge, explore, and forge ahead.
When it comes to momentum, if you’ve found you’re slowing down, it might be because what you’re doing just doesn’t work. In this case, sometimes the smartest thing to do is to stop. Don’t waste time beating your head against a wall when you could be making progress elsewhere. The point is not to quit for long, just for today. Take the time to get back to the beginning to clarify your WHY now and get back on track tomorrow.

Do Something Scary
It’s the challenge that pushes you to new limits. When you do what’s easy, momentum lags. This is why it’s so important to challenge yourself to do the things you never thought you would.
Remember, whatever you can find to help keep the momentum going, embrace! The most important thing you can do for yourself is to clarify your WHY. Be sure to do this first, we know for sure you will be happy you did.
Other ideas that might help you are: If affirmations help, post a bunch of them everywhere. Put on music to get you moving. Create a social life around people who support you wholeheartedly. You’re the one in charge of your destiny, it’s up to you to act.
