6 Steps for Midterm Motivation
Midterms are right around the corner! I feel like this semester is flying by, and I feel like I haven’t learned enough for midterms to be upon us just yet. Here are a few tips for making your midterm experience more pleasant:
- Take a deep breath. Stressing out will not help; it will only hinder your ability to study efficiently.
- Make a list. Organizing will help you to feel more accomplished instead of overwhelmed.
- Take a break. Breaks? You may be thinking, “Really? This is not the time to relax.” Taking a 10–20 minute break between study sessions will refresh your mind.
- Realize that God is in control. You don't have to be worried because He will give you the strength to make it through this.
- Do something that makes you feel like a boss. My secret motivation is having a coffee cup in hand; it makes me feel like I can take on the world.
- Go to sleep early, get up early. This may be just a personal preference, but it has helped me greatly! I get up, get ready, and get to breakfast. It helps me be prepared for the day ahead.
These are in no way scientifically proven, but I am just hoping to set you up for success and help you to have a plan of action. You can do this!0
