Finding motivation is becoming a growing challenge for many people due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the beginning, we faced weeks and months confined to our homes and had to find ways to cope with social isolation. While that may not seem as daunting now, you may still be coming to terms with working from home or remote learning.
Why might your motivation dip when working at home?
It may be due to the lack of external motivation from colleagues and peers. When we’re at home we’re not getting the same recognition, feedback, and feeling from a work environment as we would if we were at our school or office.
In addition, internal motivation can be impacted during the pandemic. Internal motivation is when we are compelled by things that are personally gratifying, such as learning, satisfying curiosity, or taking an interest. When we’re working at home we can easily become distracted by things that peak our interest more than our work. You may also feel more worried or anxious during this time about the future of the world or your job.
If you are having difficulty finding motivation, these are proactive steps that will help you regain motivation during this time.
