After we get back from spring break feeling like we could use another week or two away from exams and homework, it seems like everyone hits a wall with work. I won’t lie, I feel myself hitting it now. The sun starts to come out, everyone starts talking about summer plans, and the end of the year is in sight.
Unfortunately, school is still in full throttle and we’ve still got to be on the ball with things. Here are a few tips to keeping up the motivation when the urge to slack off hits hard.
1. Try to change up your schedule a little bit. We’ve been at it since January and sometime things can get old. Maybe sometimes instead of going to FitRec to work out, try running along the river or downtown!
2. Make a kick-ass playlist. Listening to a great playlist always keeps me pumped up on my way to class. Check out some artists you haven’t listened to before and get some fresh energy into your life.
3. Get out when you can! It feels like since January, the snow has made it impossible (or at least really annoying) to leave the BU bubble very often. Take this spring to get into Boston once a week and try a new restaurant, coffee shop, or museum.
4. If you’re having trouble being motivated in class, try to attend a talk or watch a speech online that will inspire you to do what you love again. Maybe even talk to your professor about the class and see if they have any words of wisdom for you. Sometimes it just takes one person to remind us why we want to be studying what we study!
As much as we’re all looking forward to summer, try to make the most out of these last few weeks!
