This week on the podcast, I’m answering a fabulous question about how to use nap time well. Maybe you can relate to hitting the quiet moment of the day and feeling exhausted and wanting to take a nap yourself, but also wanting to be consistent in what you want to do.

It can be hard to figure out what to do when it feels like everything needs to be done while also lacking motivation because you are exhausted. In this week’s episode, I’ll be sharing strategies and tips so you can feel confident about using nap time in a way that is intentional and productive for you.

How to overcome lack of motivation:

  • Keep the time frame short: I just need to make choices for TODAY. I can do anything for a short period of time.
  • Write down what you want to be doing: A weekly or daily rhythm or an ideal week plan is a great way to ensure you know what you want to do and when. If you already know what you want to be doing, then it is easier to take the steps to do it than if you have to figure it out every day.
  • Every night, write down your big wins for the day: Celebrating yourself builds motivation and makes it easier to keep going.
  • Weed out “should” statements: Make it your mission only to do things that really matter to you, not just things you think you “should” be doing.
  • Ask God for help: Pray for an increased capacity and for God to help you carry the load. I’m amazed and astounded by how much can happen in a day, even when I don’t feel like it, when I pray specifically for this and then act, expecting help to come.
