Re-Energize Your Day

Life is tough sometimes. Days can feel incredibly long, and no matter how hard you try, sometimes it just feels like the world is rooting against you and it can be very hard to get back up and keep going. I've found that this summer especially I've been having problems finding motivation in regular things and that sometimes my days just need a little burst of energy before I'm able to re-focus on the task at hand.


Go on a walk // If you need a little break, take a walk. Shut down your computer and turn on some music and just walk around the block or for five minutes until you feel less weighed down. I did this during finals week this past semester and it really helped! Not only was I able to refocus on my accounting book (which is really hard to focus on if you know what I mean), but I got some exercise in, too!

Take a break // If it's raining and you can't go on a walk, take a break. Refill your water bottle or stretch or do something that doesn't involve staring at a screen or looking at a book. Even close your eyes for a few minutes (but don't take a nap, you'll never recover!).

Slowly drink a glass of cold water // Water is truly amazing because of all of its side effects. You can always find me with my camelback water bottle in tow, but when I'm feeling really stressed out or frustrated with something I put the water bottle away and fill up a tall glass of new water. As I drink it, I close my eyes and take a few deep breaths and then get back to work.

Change locations // I always feel more productive in a different setting. Something about people looking at me and expecting me to be using my time wisely really helps. I love studying and working in coffee shops or libraries. Plus, it's an actual table and chair as opposed to my couch or my bed.
