What we covered

In times of crisis, it's natural to experience fear and anxiety, which can take a toll on our motivation and overall well-being. The uncertainty and stress brought on by a crisis can make it challenging to maintain focus and drive, both in our personal and professional lives. However, it's important to remember that there are strategies and techniques that can help us stay motivated even during the toughest of times.

Research has shown that anxiety can hinder clear thinking and lead to a sense of paralysis, making it difficult to make decisions and take action. This is why it's crucial to address our mental health and find ways to maintain motivation in the face of crisis.

At Panda, we understand the impact of mental health on motivation, especially in the workplace. We are excited to invite you to join our upcoming Forest session, "Motivation in the Face of Crisis," where we'll explore strategies to help you stay motivated and focused during challenging times.

Strategies to Maintain Motivation

Practice Self-Compassion

During a crisis, it's easy to be hard on ourselves, especially if we feel like we're not performing at our best. However, practicing self-compassion is essential for maintaining motivation. Remember to be kind and understanding towards yourself, and acknowledge that it's okay to feel overwhelmed during challenging times.

Set Realistic Goals

Setting achievable goals can help maintain motivation by giving you something specific to work towards. Breaking down larger tasks into smaller, manageable ones can make them feel less daunting and provide a sense of accomplishment as you complete them.

Seek Support

Connecting with others and seeking support can provide a much-needed boost to your motivation. Whether it's reaching out to a colleague, a friend, or attending a Panda digital group session, having a support network can provide encouragement and help combat feelings of isolation during a crisis.

Engage in Self-Care

Taking care of your physical and mental well-being is crucial for maintaining motivation during challenging times. Ensure you're getting enough rest, engaging in activities you enjoy, and incorporating mindfulness or relaxation techniques into your routine to help reduce stress and anxiety.

Focus on What You Can Control

During a crisis, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the things we cannot control. Redirecting your focus towards the aspects of your work or life that you can influence can help restore a sense of agency and motivation.
