All of us have probably experienced a dip in motivation every now and then. It doesn't really matter how passionate we are or how much we love our work or hobby. It's completely natural to have ups and downs, and they can be affected by anything from mental health, physical health, stress or the weather.
I have recently gone through a dip when it comes to my running. The first dip since I started running in June this year. Parts of my brain wants to beat me up for it, other parts are making up excuses for why this happened, but in the end that's just a waste of time. What matters is not why the dip occurred or for how long you've been experiencing this dip, what matters is that you let go of your prestige, get back on the horse and start again.
It's completely unrealistic to go through life without having to take physical or mental breaks from time to time. Even the most successful have to recharge their batteries every now and then. For some, a two day break is enough, for some it takes a month or six months before they feel ready to try again. Maybe even years!
I have had a two week break from all workouts now and yes, I feel guilty about it 'cause I feel like I have wasted valuable time. But I can't let that guilt stop me from getting back into it! My motivation is back and I need to let go of these two weeks to be able to move forward.
The main point I want to make today is that you should not let guilt stop you. I completely understand the feeling of wanting to procrastinate doing something 'cause you feel guilty for procrastinating in the first place. But it's always (!) better to start again, no matter how small or easy and build from there, rather than not starting at all.
