Happy March: Coming Back to My Blog & Getting Out of a Rut

If you haven't noticed I have been very inconsistent in my blog content over the past few months or so. At first I was really trying to adjust to college life and then I kind of got unmotivated. 

I would try to write posts but I could never complete them. I don't know why but I had no real motivation to continue writing and creating for my blog. I got into kind of a rut on my blog and honestly in my life. Ever since I was a kid I have struggled with the repetitive schedule of school and everyday life

After a couple of weeks of feeling super unmotivated I finally decided to take action and kick this rut! 

The first thing I did after, I made the decision to get out of my rut, was make a list of all of the things that make me feel happy/productive. These things were as simple as: working out and spending time with friends. As soon as I did this my mood and motivation somehow changed. This probably sounds crazy but there is just something special about writing things  out. 

Another thing that really helped me get out of my rut was change up my routine. I found myself doing the same thing everyday and I wasn't very happy about it. I decided to change up little things in my day to day routine just to see if I felt any difference and I most definitely did! One of the things I changed in my routine was where I eat and who I eat with. A lot of the time I am in a rush to go to class so I eat something quick in my dorm or the dining hall. I decided to block out a little more time during the day to eat with friends or eat at a different place on campus. I also found it beneficial to switch up my study spot. I always study in the same spots on campus. Last week I tried out 4 different study spots. I felt such a difference in my motivation to do my school work after this.

It's only been about a week now since I decided to kick this rut but, I will definitely keep you all posted on my progress! 

So happy to be back on the blog!!!
