10 Ways To Stay Motived As The End Of The Semester Approaches

Get your head in the game.


If you're struggling to stay motivated for these next few weeks of school, you aren't alone. With summer so close it can definitely be harder to stay motivated, especially with the weather increasing. When the weather increases our motivation automatically decreases.

It should be summer right? Why do I have to even go to class? I mean it's warm outside, doesn't that mean it's summertime?

The daily thoughts that I'm sure to have been going through your head for about a week now, or at least they're definitely going through mine. It may be hard, but ultimately if we want to succeed then we have to find some sort of motivation somehow. Now is a great time to try out these tips to staying motivated for these next few weeks of school.

1. Visualize your goals

Realistically what do you wish to accomplish.

2. Set small, daily goals

Success is a series of small wins.

3. Make an overall plan/schedule

Set realistic deadlines for your goals.

4. Find a balance in your life

Do something that makes you happy everyday to give yourself a break.

5. Take action

You can plan all you want, but if you never take action nothing will ever get done.

6. Limit your distractions

Ensure that you're not always distracted and are using your time wisely.

7. Reward yourself for even the smallest accomplishments

Each goal you achieve will boost your confidence that much more.

8. Focus on how you feel

Listen to your body, both mentally and physically.

9. Surround yourself with positivity

Always start your day smiling.

10. Believe in yourself

You can do anything you set your mind to.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)
