Focus on Progress

Instead of fixating on perfection, celebrate incremental progress. Remember, “Practice Makes Progress”! By acknowledging the steps you’ve taken, no matter how small, you can fuel your motivation and keep moving forward.

Reframe the Past

Learn from past failures and reframe them as valuable learning experiences. Rather than dwelling on setbacks, view them as stepping stones toward success. By shifting your mindset, you can overcome the fear of failure and embrace new opportunities.

Boost Inspiration

Surround yourself with sources of inspiration that resonate with you. Whether it’s motivational quotes, uplifting music, or supportive communities, find what inspires you and incorporate it into your daily life.

Connect With Others

Human connection is essential for motivation and accountability. Engage with like-minded individuals, join supportive communities, and enlist the help of friends and family members on your journey towards wellness.

Find Traction

Experiment with different approaches until you find what works best for you. Whether it’s making small changes (iterations) to your habits or seeking out new opportunities, take action and iterate until you regain momentum.


By implementing these strategies, you can hack your habenula and reclaim your motivation. Remember, setbacks are a natural part of the journey, but with perseverance and iteration, you can overcome them.
