Kick it in Gear! How to Get Re-Motivated for College After Spring Break! – Royals Lesson!

 
Ciao lovelies! Today, I want to talk to you all about how to re-motivate yourself after Spring Break!

Spring Break is good for us because it provides a much-needed rest for a short period. But sometimes, coming back to school after Spring Break can be hard because you spent a week just relaxing and now you need to get back to work!


So what can you do to make the transition a little smoother? How can you get back into school-mode after Spring Break? Here are a few of my personal tips.

1.       On your first day back, sit down and make a calendar. You can make calendars easily using Microsoft Word, or you can print out a calendar and write in the dates, or you can buy a calendar. Knowing what is due and when will help you better organize your workload.

2.       Prioritize! Know what’s most important and get it done first. If you’re having trouble with this, write everything you need to get done in a list and then rank them based on importance. 

3.       If you find yourself overwhelmed by the workload, take a step back. Select one task from your list and break it into smaller tasks. 

4.       Having trouble focusing in class? Bring a cold/frozen water-bottle and drink from it whenever you feel sleepy. 

5.       Be sure to ask for help when you need it. Most colleges/universities/high-schools/middle-schools/schools-in-general have an academic resources center or tutoring available. 

6.       Take everything day by day. It is good to plan ahead but know your limits. Don’t try to get six projects done in a day. 

7.       Get plenty of rest and make your health a priority. Don’t skip meals, don’t neglect showers, and don’t forget any medicine/vitamins you might be taking.


Some tips from the web:

1.       Remember to respect your goals that you are trying to attain and appreciate and reflect on the ones you have reached. (From www.academictips.org )

2.       Set Attainable Goals. If you're having trouble writing a 25-page paper for class because it seems like such a big job, don't focus on that final number. Break the paper down and consider each section of your paper individually. (From https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org )

3.       Understanding why you procrastinate is a key first step to getting motivated. (From www.daniel-wong.com )

4.       Create a Comfortable Environment. Your environment can make a huge difference in how motivated you feel. If you aren’t living in a space that is relaxing and comfortable, then how can you expect to stay focused? (From https://chasethewritedream.com )


At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that your motivation and desire to achieve your goals comes from YOU. (However, if you have chronic problems with motivation, you may want to seek help and advice from a school counselor as this is a symptom of depression.)  But for many, YOU decide how motivated you want to be. At the end of it all, these are YOUR goals that you’re chasing and it’s YOUR life that you’re affecting. Often, I think we forget that our lives are very controlled by US!
