We all have low points. Periods when energy and motivation are low and it feels like you are running on fumes. This can be days, weeks, months…even years. It helps to have a plan to get you through these low points.
Here are 5 things to do when you don’t feel like doing anything at all.

Create a to-do list. List out everything you need to get done in the year. Break that down by month, and assign smaller tasks to each day of the month. Keep your daily to-do list short: 5-7 tasks.
Get dressed. Pick out an outfit for every day! Wear something flattering and cute, even if you don’t plan on going out. Get dresses first thing in the morning, before leaving your bedroom or right after a morning shower.
Do simple chores daily. Wash the dishes, start a load of laundry, put your shoes away, wipe down the counters, and sweep the floors.
Care for yourself. Put some relaxing essential oils in your diffuser, take a long hot shower or bath, make a massage appointment, practice yoga and breathing exercises, or have a piece of dark chocolate after dinner. Be mindful about self care. Take a moment each day to express gratitude by telling someone “thank you,” journal the things you’re grateful for, or thanking yourself for everything you do.
Strengthen yourself. Exercise daily. Run or walk, lift weights or use body weight, stretch and practice yoga, participate in some form of recreation. I like to hiking, lifting free weights, and relaxing yoga for flexibility. I kayak, stand up paddle board, figure skate, and garden on sunny days.
Make sure to care for your mind and body when you’re struggling. Take your vitamins, especially vitamin B, and move your body every day. Drink plenty of water. Plan your day and stick to the plan. Create healthy routines and schedules to save you time planning and thinking.
