How to Get Motivated After Holidays

The article is written by Loren Howarth

It’s always a struggle to find motivation after a relaxing holiday. Whether you escaped to the beach or enjoyed some downtime at home, studying was probably the last thing on your mind.

But with the festivities officially over, it’s time to start getting ready for the year ahead. Here are our top 5 ways to kick laziness to the curb and achieve all your goals.


Get organised 

An organisation is a key to regaining motivation after a long break. This can include buying new equipment for your studies (who doesn’t love stationery?!), planning out a new routine, or checking out what’s happening at your institution. By doing this, not only will you be prepared for the year ahead, but you’ll also start looking forward to any exciting projects which you didn’t know about before. Getting a diary is a good place to start!


Create goals and then rewards for completing them 

Sometimes it can be daunting going into another year after having such a long time off studying. The best way to combat this? Create goals for yourself. By doing this you’ll have a game plan and feel eager to complete them. But that’s not all! Don’t forget to also plan rewards for completing any goals you achieve. For example, schedule a fun day out with friends after submitting a big assignment. This will make you more motivated to get back into the swing of things.


Check out your classes for the year 

One of the best things about starting a year of study is the new classes you’ll be able to take. There are usually so many interesting electives to choose from and often the choice can be overwhelming! But by looking into what you’ll be learning for the year, this can make all the difference in being motivated to learn.


Watch motivational videos 

You’ve probably had someone tell you to watch motivational videos before, but they really do work. If you finding yourself lacking the enthusiasm to begin your studies for the year, watching a couple of this videos will really leave you feeling inspired and eager to gain new knowledge. They will want to make you take over the world!


Catch up with your study group 

We’re not going to lie – getting back into study mode can suck. But having a great support group can really make you motivated to want to learn again. This is a great opportunity to talk about all your goals for the year, any worries, and even to help pick electives. After this chat, you’ll feel more prepared and ready to conquer your studies!

Best of luck for 2018!
