Find your Monday Motivation from

Let's be honest; nobody likes Mondays.

Finding motivation can be difficult for the most mundane tasks but when it comes to studying it can be near on impossible. So how can you motivate yourself to study? Have a look at these 8 tips we have come up with and see if they help!

1.You’re doing this for you!

Before you even begin to think of the studying itself, think of how you will feel once it is all finished and what you would have gained from it.

2. Make every thought move you forward


Try making sure all your thoughts end in a positive conclusion. Remember that you are doing this for your improvement, push yourself forward mentally and the results will show.


3. Visualise yourself taking action

It has been said if you can visualise it, you can do it. Begin with imagining yourself studying,   focus on it, and before you know it you will be motivated to get started. If you are thinking   about it, you may as well be doing it!

Find your motivation to study. Here's how.

4.Remember small actions add up

Try not to think of all the studying need to be done in one lump sum. You will be surprised  how much you get through by tackling small tasks, one at a time.

 5. Nail your feet to the floor

Find a good study space, and stay there! Avoid procrastinating by leaving the room and wandering around; staying in one place will keep your studying consistent.

6.Get your dopamine firing


Do what makes you happy! Whether that is exercise, chatting or listening to your favourite  song. Start just after you have done something that makes you happy, studying whilst  positive gets great results.


7.Start before you feel ready


Trick yourself and start a little earlier than planned. If you say you will start at 5pm, start at 4.55pm…it’s a great motivational tip!


8.Remind yourself that this won’t go on forever.


It really won’t! Studying is a means to an end and will be over before you know it, remember to reward yourself after each study session and tick it off a list…that’s one step closer you are to the end!
