A tip to overcome lethargy, lack of energy and demotivation

I was reminded today of how often lethargy, lack of energy and lack of motivation are common problems with Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis. I thought this might be useful:
There's a trick I play with myself that works every time - works equally well with my clients..... When there is something they don't want to do, I get them to think about doing it and as their mental video is rolling I get them to say, "It's done!" and all of the resistance seems to evaporate. It becomes easy and they can even do it on autopilot - leaving their mind to enjoy something else.
Hope this helps. If you try it, I'd love to know how you get on.


  1. I know this works ;I use it most days to get myself to work after a disturbed nights sleep (which is most nights) I love my job as a rehabilitation therapist but the energy it takes to get me there sometimes is enormous, so using this method reduces my anxiety and resistance and helps me to live a almost normal life

  2. Brilliant! Well done! Thanks for your comment - J


I would be delighted to hear from you.
