Hi @astha_sharma Run like : "Look at that dude in a hurry to catch the bus, HEY, RUN FORREST RUN!" Then take a shower. And go back at work/make/create/develop. Hope this helps !

@astha_sharma Having a healthy lifestyle helps for sure. When I lack motivation, I start my day with something small I can check off my to-do pretty easily. It usually motivates me and put me in a state of mind where I feel I can achieve things.

@astha_sharma Sometimes it means listening to pump up music that makes me want to move; Other times its simply taking a break. Every once in awhile I just look to Beyonce as well and be like - well damn I got to get off my duff and do something :)

@astha_sharma I go for a walk by thinking of the next small chunk that I can iterate quickly. When I'm back home, I take a cold shower, then I stop thinking and just do the thing. Hours later I'm still there working. I believe the hardest part in such context is to get started.
