There are times when your brain doesn’t work, no matter what you try to do. Your mind feels like an inactive spirit. There is nothing unusual with these feelings. What you need to do is let this slothfulness stay its course, but you’ve to redirect your attention to something else that would make your mind restore again.

Don’t force yourself to do things when your mind is not in a suitable mode – you’ll just be wasting your time. Instead, try to make some adjustments to return back your interest in your previous work.

How can leaders inspire themselves when they are doing.

  1. Do some regular exercise. Sometimes, this is hard to do, but try to force yourself to try walking around your room, slowly move outside your backyard, and then eventually walk a little distance until you can walk further away. When you’re already a little inspired to walk and little by little recharging your energy, continue a little stretching until you sweat and release endorphins which are natural antidepressants in your body. Once these are released, you feel inspired again back to working mode.
  2. Start something different. When you begin a new work, you feel eager to do it quickly, but don’t make a drastic move to act; simply take the first small step until you fully recover from your previous depression. If you feel somebody can help you, try to seek advice to ease you and improve fast.
  3. Nature will rescue you, always: Make it a habit to always go out from your room and refresh yourself with the beauty of nature. By simply walking down your garden, stirring your flowers, looking at the beautiful bees and butterflies, sampling the nectars of the flower garden makes you refreshed and renewed in spirit and mental block. From your garden, you can relax on the beach and behold the rolling waves kissing ashore. The sound of the rising waves to the shore skips your problems and makes you more relax and feel inspired to go back to your work.
  4. Your vision will pick you up when you fall: Think about how you want to finish your task, and what it means to you in the first place. It’s but natural that you have a sense of low energy and can not proceed with your work, but if you think you want to accomplish what you desire, then through your vision, you’ll help to be driven to your time frame.
  5. Don’t give up, don’t wave the white flag, ever: Don’t give up no matter what it cost. You’ll feel more tolerant with time, and the average time for self-care a priority. When your emptied energy is recharged back to working mode, please don’t stop until you’re right to the finish line. Your success becomes obvious as you continue the tasks to the final end.

When you’re stuck up, and nothing happens despite your struggles, just read these tips explained above to recharge you back to working mode and feel motivated to achieve your goal.
