Everyone goes through it from time to time: the struggle to find the energy to get stuff done when you’d rather stay in bed or do literally anything other than those things on your to-do list.

Make it a game:
Reframing the task in the context of a game and connecting your actions to rewards or penalties is a great way to stay motivated.
