What are motivational supplements you use?

I personally listen to a few podcasts like Codenewbie, Developer Tea and Shop Talk Show.
And of course, my daily dose of Dev.to😊
What helps motivate you?

I like to listen to a wide range of podcasts but I particularly like productivity ones like Success Insider, Back To Work and The College Info Geek.

I read a few articles daily involving technology and web (I of course read Dev.to!).

However, I believe that getting plenty of rests, exercise and eating well helps a lot to motivate me. I feel that if you have more energy and know when to use it, then it's much easier to get productive on the day.

I'm trying to get a daily dose of exercise. A five minute jog is better than a 0 minute jog, and that's helped tremendously with getting me back on track if I'm feeling unfocused.

Personally I remind myself of why I became a developer and how far I've come to get into a position that I'm happy in. Sometimes you can feel down for many reasons but just keep reminding yourself of why you're doing what you do and how far you've come.

I listen to Syntax podcast which started recently. Mostly I get my motivation from methylphenidate though. #realADHDtalk
