Lifestyle | My Top 10 Travel Essentials

Lifestyle | Tips to get Motivated

As a student, I can sometimes struggle to get motivated – whether that’s to complete my assignments, or get out of bed on my day off. However, I feel that it’s important to have goals and in order to reach our goals we need to be motivated.

So for today’s blog post I’ve listed below the ways I get motivated and the things that I do during the day to keep myself motivated and working towards my goals.

I think it’s important to start the day right and with a healthy breakfast. However, I am the first to admit that I sometimes skip eating breakfast altogether. I’ve been told that it’s imperative to eat a nutritional breakfast as it acts as fuel for the brain and provides improved concentration and performance – two things needed to be motivated. When I do have a healthy breakfast (which is 70% of the time), I will usually have at least once piece of fruit with a bowl of cereal/muesli and a coffee.
