How do you get motivated on a dreary day?

Today is so gray and dreary that I really just want to curl up in the recliner with my book and a mug of hot tea in front of the fireplace. But instead here I am at work and having a really tough time getting motivated to get anything done. Any suggestions?

  • I hear yea, here in the Buffalo, NY area it's windy, raining, and very grey and I am having a hard time finding the energy to get anything done. But the fireplace and a warm cup of "Candy Cand Lane" tea will really help, go for it.

  • I get more motivation on dreary days. It's a great excuse to stay inside and get work done.... since playing with the kids out in the sun is not an option.

  • Be thankful you can do that when you get home...a lot of people can't.

  • It's hard for me to get motivated whenever the weather is cold. I just want to be warm under a blanket and do nothing else. You just have to push yourself and remind yourself you'll feel guilty later if you dont' accomplish anything today.
