    All half term I have been so demotivated to do work for exams. As this is not usually an issue i dont really know what to do. Any ideas??

    Hey, theres a couple things i do when i get that too
    1) take a couple mins out and look at the unis you want to go to and what you need to get for them and keep the tabs open.
    2) decide to take a day off revision and go out and do things and don't feel guilty for it just do things other than work
    3) go for a walk/run. you will feel so much better when you come back
    4) work out how much time you don't have to revise and panic yourself in to revision :P

    Good Luck!

    I totally feel you, lol motivation? what's that?!
    Anyway what I do is:
    1. Get up, walk a bit and just stretch my legs etc
    2. if I've been doing one subject for a while I change it up, vary it all I guess
    3. Pretend I'm Elle Woods, after the party scene when "Watch me shine" starts playing and that I am FILLED WITH RAGE AND READY TO POUND MY RUDE LAW CLASS INTO THE DUST FIGHT ME
    4. (Not my proudest feeling, but heck it motivates me) Also think about how I want to prove someone I know wrong and that I am justified in turning her down to revise and just generally make a point of doing better than her TO PROVE A POINT AGAINST HER ATTITUDE IM SO SICK OF IT AND I WANT TO WIN
    5. Music can help if you've been working in the quiet, or if you've been listening to music then turn it off for a bit and work in quiet

    Hope that helps and you get your mojo back! <3
    good luck!!!
