MID-YEAR SCHOOL MO­TI­VA­TION

Style Magazine - - Mid-year Makeover - BY EL­LIE HUGHES

After half a year of study­ing al­ready it can be hard to find the drive to keep do­ing well in school for the rest of the year.

To help com­bat your study ap­a­thy here are three of the eas­i­est ways to find some mo­ti­va­tion.

SET GOALS

Set­ting goals for your­self gives you a fo­cus and a point to strive to­wards.

It’s much eas­ier to find mo­ti­va­tion when you know what you want to do, rather than floun­der­ing to­wards noth­ing.

Make lists about what you want, how you’re go­ing to achieve it and re­ward your­self when you ac­com­plish your goals.

LIS­TEN TO MU­SIC

Hav­ing a mo­ti­va­tional playlist is the sim­plest way to find your in­spi­ra­tion for what­ever you’re do­ing.

Ap­pro­pri­ately picked mu­sic in­cites pos­i­tive emo­tions, so find the songs that mo­ti­vate you most and lis­ten to them while you’re study­ing or pre­par­ing your­self for school.

HAVE A FRESH START

It’s half­way through the year, which is an im­por­tant mile­stone and per­fect place to start fresh.

Hav­ing a new be­gin­ning gives a burst of en­ergy and a chance to for­get past fail­ures.

Make your fresh start real by get­ting a new set of sta­tionery or blank note­books for your course work.

This gives tan­gi­ble pres­ence to an oth­er­wise sym­bolic idea.
