What Is Lack Of Motivation?

Most people experience a lack of motivation to follow through with certain things in their life – this is normal. Not wanting to do things that we perceive as not being pleasurable or that we fear may cause us discomfort is common. This can become a problem however if a lack of motivation gets in the way of accomplishing important goals; compromises relationships; effects work and/or school performance; or effects physical/emotional well-being; among others. Sometimes a lack of motivation can be the result of depression, anxiety or other disorders.
