Mrs Motivator's emergency 7 point kit

1) Have a break.  If you're worried that you've already had too long a break then...
2) Write a plan.  Scribble down the tasks you need to do on a piece of paper and put timescales on them, put a time/day next to it.  What are you going to do?  What task or activity?  When are you going to do it?  For how long?  How often? Do you have a contingency plan?  Can you share the plan with others to help motivate you?
3) Use a timer.  Work for one minute on the most difficult task - break the back of it.
4) Reward yourself with free treats - stick to it, be consistent with yourself.
5) Have a list of your top ten motivators to hand- people preferably still alive that you can talk to personally to help motivate you when you need it.  Can you ring them now?  Use motivational chats as free treats.
6) Dissect your demotivation:  What has caused it?  What got you out of it in the past?  The same things will work this time.
7) Pick motivational quotes and stick them on your computer monitor - preferably personalised to you - Good feedback?  Stick it on your monitor.
