Dealing with (a lack of) motivation

Motivation always seems like some magical buzzword when it comes to study/work productivity, and if the few psychology modules I’ve had to take over my years at uni are anything to go by, motivation can be an extremely powerful tool and psychological element to getting through the ups and downs of the roller coaster that is (academic) life. But motivation is not a constant. It is affected by so many different factors for all of us. So today, I’m sharing some tips and advice you could try if, like me, you’re struggling to feel motivated with your studies and need a little boost.

Blogmas Day Twenty Four – The Christmas Tag

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!! Can you believe that in less than 24 hours, Christmas day will be here?? This year has been above and beyond crazy, and it’s even scarier to think that it will all soon be over. Since it is Christmas eve, I wasn’t sure what kind of post to do, but then I remembered this really fun tag I saw on my friend Olivia’s blog. I’d never heard of this tag before and thought it would make a fantastic addition to my blogmas posts, and perfect for Christmas eve because it’s all about Christmas!! This tag works like any other blogging tag – I answer pre-set questions and then share the answers with you. Once you’ve read the responses, if you want to, please feel free to do this tag too! I’m not tagging anyone because it’s Christmas eve, and I don’t think people will have enough time, but if you want to do it, then please do! Just don’t forget to tag the original creator, Laurenyloves. 

Blogmas Day Twenty Three – What your favourite Christmas beverage says about you

Christmas-themed drinks are all the rage. No matter where you go, you can see people sipping festive drinks from coffee shops, stacked in all the stores, for sale in your favourite cafes, restaurants and cute little Christmas stalls. With that in mind, I couldn’t do a post without acknowledging all these glorious beverages. I had such fun with the post I wrote last year about What your favourite Christmas cookie says about you that I thought it would be really cool to try one with Christmas drinks. Sooooo without further ado, here is a fun little post about what your favourite Christmas beverage says about you! 

Blogmas Day Twenty Two – Guest post by Olivia Lucie Blake

Christmas is soooooo close now it’s quite terrifying, but I’ve loved the build-up to Christmas this year and all the fun of doing Blogmas this year. And… in a few more days I wont be popping up in your inboxes everyday with another post so you’ll get a nice long break from me too to enjoy the rest of December. Anywho, today I’m bringing you the last guest post for Blogmas from a really great friend of mine and a true blogging inspiration. Today’s post is from Olivia and she has a phenomenal lifestyle blog, and my favourite topics are specifically around self-care and mental health so I approached her about doing a post for blogmas on one of those topics. So, without getting too off topic, here is Olivia’s post!
