Are you struggling to get out of bed in the morning or feeling burned out?
Personal motivation is key to maintaining almost all aspects of life.
Behavioural psychologist Dr Helgo Schomer says motivation is the driving force which pushes people towards their goals.
If we're not motivated, we're more likely to waste our time and neglect our personal and professional goals.
Dr Schomer explains that education and setting expectations is a key part of motivation.
