It’s time for some Monday Motivation because a new week is a chance to start over if you need it, or an opportunity to keep going when you’re on track! Also, puppies.
Yuck. Bah. Bleh. Meh.
^ That’s how I’d describe the past week for me. I’m writing this on Sunday, as today (Monday) marks the start of 24 hours of hell, also known as the exam in social sciences & science philosophy (I think. It’s hard to translate the course name).
So if I sound like I’m losing my mind in this post, it’s just because I am. I just long for human interaction and relaxing without this black cloud hanging over me. (If you haven’t guessed it already, I’m terrible at handling exam stress. So let’s stop talking about. Wait, I’m the one who decides what we talk about in this one-sided conversion. Sorry).
Things I’m totally gonna do this week
- Get my good sleeping pattern back: My exams ends 9 am Tuesday, so I there’s a good chance my body will feel totally messed up for at least a few days.
- Be gentle with myself: As I said, I don’t handle exam stress well – and this stress easily sets off a bad cycle where I don’t eat properly or workout – and that makes me feel more stressed, and so I make even more bad decisions. Feeling shit 4 times a year is mandatory when you’re student, and I try to accept that.
- Go to the gym as much as I feel like: I’m currently going to the gym 4-5 times a week – but when I’m stressed I need more rest & recovery time. So maybe I’ll go 5 times. Maybe 0. Both is cool.
