Getting Close to Crunch Time

Getting back into school mode after a break can be very difficult, especially when you have to dive right in. Finals are soon approaching, in about three weeks, and I have so many things to accomplish in those three weeks, it's crazy! I have two research papers due, a magazine editorial project, and not to mention study for finals! I am particularly stressed about my Business Stats final, it's the one class that I have not invested the greatest amount of time in, and it is definitely making me nervous. However, I am feeling super motivated to start studying for my finals now; I will not let procrastination get the best of me!

Getting motivated might be easy but keeping it can be difficult, so here are a few fun ways you can prolong your motivation:

1: Get enough sleep!
I cannot tell you how many times I have lost motivation because of how tired I am! Coffee only solves the problem short term and naps sometimes make you even more tired. My suggestion is to go to bed on time and stop wasting time on facebook!

2: Exercise!
If you are feeling tired or worn out from studying, go workout! It will get your endorphins pumping and prepare you for a long night of studying!

3: Have someone hold you accountable!
Grab a friend and hold each other accountable in your studies. There is nothing worse than being called out on your procrastination, so hopefully that will motivate and keep you on track with studying!

That's all for today! Have a great week!
