Things I Do To Keep Myself Motivated

Updated Published
This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Clark chapter.

While staying quarantined and social distancing is important and necessary, it can also greatly impact a person’s daily drive and motivation.

Here are some of the things that I do stay motivated and sane:

Go to sleep and wake up at a reasonable time.

When I first started quarantining, I found myself losing structure to my day and realized that I am someone who works and functions better with a routine. One thing that I have been doing is trying to go to sleep at a reasonable time and waking up early. By doing so, I have learned that I am most motivated and efficient in the earlier half of the day.

Give yourself breaks throughout the day.

While it is important to complete all your tasks and assignments on time, it is also important to give yourself breaks throughout the day. Having breaks gives you something to look forward to and stay motivated.

Stay connected with friends and family.

Staying connected with friends and family is extremely important during this time. It acts as a reminder that you are not alone and limit the opportunity to overthink by yourself. By talking to others, you can also motivate each other to keep going!

Stay Active.

Finding ways to stay active is essential during this time. Not only is it beneficial physically, but it can also be beneficial mentally by acting as a stress reliever. For ideas, I tend to go on Youtube to look for at-home workout videos that I feel comfortable doing.

These are just some of the things that I am doing to keep myself sane and motivated at this time. While I may not do all of these things every single day, attempting to at least try and do them gives me the extra push that I need to work through the day.
