Make proximity work in your favor. That advice comes from psychology professor Dr. Timothy Pychyl. Basically, when we can easily access something, we’re more likely to take action. So if your sneakers are by your bed, you’re more likely to put them on and go for a morning walk. Or if cut vegetables are the first thing you see when you open the fridge, you’re more likely to eat them. So, use the “proximity effect” to your advantage. It can boost your motivation.
