What is motivation?
Motivation in most people is often fleeting, momentary or elusive. It is rare to be constantly motivated as the feeling comes and goes unpredictably. A prolonged lack of motivation however can result in procrastination, mood dips, and often depression. Postponing personal goals while waiting for motivation to strike can be demoralizing and result in a cycle of procrastination.

There is a way to alter our thinking to inform our actions with cognitive behavioural therapy. This form of psychotherapy offers an effective treatment for low motivation by identifying detrimental behaviour and incorporating new practices to break the old pattern. By changing behavioral patterns, talk therapy helps get on track with goals.
