I don’t know about you, but throughout the recent weeks I have really been slacking in keeping up momentum and finishing school work, and staying on track.
With the recent strike going on, there are a few ways you can try keeping up your #Momentum (which I’m going to be doing too! Hey, we can do them together!)
- Go to programs!
Whether you live on or off-campus, there are many curricular activities you can get involved in. Within residence, there are many programs designated for you to enjoy–as well as at the school. From academics to personal interest, there is bound to be a program that suits you! Try and be social, and keep up your momentum this way!
- Set goals
As cheesy as this sounds, setting a small and realistic goal a day may be more beneficial than just thinking about ALL the things you still need to do. Start small and slow, and then work your way up to the big stuff! This can be extremely helpful, especially if you have assignments to finish! (Try looking up an assignment calculator to create a timeline to get your assignments done!)
- Take care of yourself
The number one thing that is essential when keeping up your #Momentum is to take care of yourself. This requires eating well, going to sleep at a reasonable time and getting an adequate nights sleep), and doing things you enjoy.
- Have a routine
It is easy to fall into a slump when you have more free time, or you have nothing to really motivate you. Try to use a calendar to keep on track so you can have a regular daily routine.
- Do at least one thing a day for yourself
Do something you enjoy! Pick up a new hobby, read an interesting book–the world is your oyster! Doing something for yourself not only keeps up your #Momentum but it also decreases stress.
It is really easy to get off track, but try and keep in mind that exams are just around the corner. I think all of us get off track every once in a while. If this happens to be you right now, you are definitely not alone! I encourage you all to try and keep up your #Momentum!
Until next time,
– Jess 🙂
