back to answering your question —
i. identify the problem you’re facing
is it because you’ve so much to do and you don’t know where to start (aka me), or you have no reason to continue studying, or maybe you’re burnt out? whatever it is, it’s important to figure out why you’re running out of motivation in order to stop procrastinating and find a solution.
ii. now that you’ve somewhat identified the problem, what next?
if you don’t know where to start, you might wanna start by taking a piece of paper or a page from your planner/bujo and list down all your homework, followed by revision that you need to complete (eg. finish history notes, or finish math tys) and lastly, any other commitments/housework (eg. clean out wardrobe, dust shelves, pack luggage). this gives you a pretty clear idea of what you need to get done, and cause you to freak out because there’s so much to do, and potentially convince you into being productive – here’s a useful way of sorting your schedule out
if you have no reason to continue studying, or you’re just damn sian (or tired, in english) of studying, google your dream school (college, university, jc, poly, whatever) or dream job (??) and have a lil scroll through their website, and tell yourself that you are studying to earn your place in that school and that you’re studying to one day, get that job and save lives, fight for someone’s freedom whatnot idk. if all else fails, print out a damn picture of your dream school/job and stick it infront of your desk to motivate you! or have a little scroll through instagram tags (eg. for singaporeans, #whyhc #whyac #whysji) and admire their cool uniform and all (aka me @ sji sobssss). lastly, print out some cool motivational quotes (some examples mentioned in kou’s motivational masterpost – might wna check it out and give kou some love because she deserves it)
if you’re burnt out, take some time off and appreciate the beauty that’s in life itself!
iii. and as you all know, i’m not good at giving advice, but others are, so here are some cool masterposts that might help!
hope this kinda helped! i’m deffo not the best at giving advice + i’m not the most motivated person around here but if you have any other questions or you just wna rant, my ask box is always open! have a productive holiday (or, what’s left of it) (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑
