Staying Motivated- How to Keep Going When the Struggle is Real

Staying Motivated- How to Keep Going When the Struggle is Real

Happy Tuesday! 🙂

I think we are beginning to hit that mid-autumn slump. Labor Day weekend is long gone, and Thanksgiving is still nearly a month away. The weather is cooling down, you’re probably in the swing of your back-to-school routine, and everything is overwhelmingly regular.

It’s easy to lose some motivation after several weeks of chugging through your routine. Everyone gets into a funk every now and then and that is very normal. Today, I am going to share some tips to get out of that “funk” and perk yourself up again!

Here they are:

  1. Try something different: Get out of your routine and try something new. Take a class, visit a new city, move your study space to a new location. If you get out of your comfort zone, you’re sure to feel inspired!
  2. Read an inspiring book: Read something motivational. If not an entire book, maybe a blog post to give you some fresh perspective!
  3. Take a break: Walk away from whatever you’re doing for a while. Nothing makes me crazier than stressing over an essay or a math problem that just isn’t happening. Sometimes it just isn’t your day. Let it be!
  4. Reminisce: Look back on old journal entries or pictures. Once you see how far you’ve come in reaching your goals, you will feel so motivated to continue!
  5. Make a playlist: A really good feel-happy playlist can work wonders. It may sound silly, but singing your heart out to some fun jams can lift your mood instantly!
