What do you do if you are lacking in motivation?

There is a lot to be said for not actually doing anything.
To do nothing is the gateway to peace.
However even doing nothing or very  little must be appreciated in the same way that you might relish a holiday.
It must be seen as a positive experience in which you are fully aware and awake to all that is going on around you. 
In other words that you are fully experiencing the present moment.
Then all the time is far from wasted, rather it is the best possible use of the time you could imagine.
And the more time you allow yourself to do nothing, the greater is the opportunity you are creating for yourself to be open to all possibilities.
When you have a fresh and open uncluttered mind,  true inspiration and original thought will arise within your thoughts.
You will become inspired,  then motivation will  follow and you in turn will inspire others.
For you to have motivation you must first of all have inspiration.
Create space and time and an opportunity for inspiration to arrive.
This is the most important aspect of your life.
You can survive and exist,
or you can inspire and be fully alive.

Thich Nhat Hanh 

Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. 
It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment of daily life. To be mindful is to be truly alive, present and at one with those around you and with what you are doing. We bring our body into harmony while we wash the dishes, drive the car or take our morning shower.
