3 Reasons Why You Are Losing Motivation to Workout and What You Can Do About It

COVID-19 has turned the world upside down, inside out, and all around. More than ever, we are challenged to find innovative ways to stay healthy during these unprecedented times. Social distancing has now become the new norm and because of it, maintaining the motivation to continue your routine daily exercises to stay healthy has become quite a struggle. Here are 3 reasons or contributing factors why you may be losing motivation while on lockdown and how you can break free from being unmotivated.


Feelings of isolation can occur even if you live with a partner or with your family. Day in and day out, you are locked down at home seeing the same walls and the same floors, while wondering about when the pandemic will be over so you can see your friends or other relatives. These feelings are considered to be one of the top contributing factors that cause a lack of motivation.


You have probably been watching hours upon hours of television to either stay current with the news or to distract yourself away from it. This is probably because of anxiety. It is no surprise that everyone is feeling anxious about the pandemic, especially when it comes to working. Fears of losing your job and fears about being infected by the virus are causing you to feel high amounts of anxiety, which may be causing you to lose motivation to stay healthy while on lockdown.

Deprived of Stimulation

Just like feeling isolated, sensory deprivation or being deprived of stimulation can cause you to lose motivation. Perhaps you benefit and thrive from the structure of a socially interactive environment like the gym, but because of social distancing and various other local regulations, you no longer have that option. This means you are no longer inspired or motivated to begin or continue your routine exercise regimen to stay healthy.
