Let's Discuss...Staying Motivated

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to be sharing the ways in which I stay motivated to be the best version of myself and how I sustain this throughout life on a daily basis. I’ve wanted to write this post for such a long time, but I think because motivation is something I’ve struggled with a lot in the past it just didn’t feel right until now.

Being a student can be really tough on your mental health, I know that the constant change in sleeping pattern, diet and general lifestyle changes had a massive impact on my happiness throughout my first two years of uni.

I would definitely say that the past two months have been a massive change to my lifestyle, finishing university for until September has definitely helped with this. Personally for me the university timetable scheduling for my course in particular makes it tough for me to stay motivated, I find that only have eight hours spread across seven days is too little time spent in education and the rest of the time is spent deciding whether to actually go the library or catch up on sleep. I 100% made bad choices in this through both my first and second year and its something I’ll kick myself for if I do again - however the way I’m living now and what I’m learning from it should hopefully help me not do this again.

Here are my best tips on how to keep motivated and the best life for yourself...

My Skincare Routine with Charlotte Tilbury

My last couple of posts have been all foodie related, so I thought I'd talk about skincare today. I'm pretty rubbish with my 'skincare routine' as usually I'll just use a makeup remover and then moisturise, but it is nice to pamper yourself every now and again. I only have a few high end skincare products as I like a lot of the ones on the high street market and think they work just as well, but when I'm in the mood for a deep cleanse I love to use Charlotte Tilbury skincare products.

A True Foodie Experience | The Grind Cafe

Today I'm discussing yet ANOTHER one of my favourite places to eat in Sheffield (as it seems to be all I do). I visited the Grind Cafe last month with Tom and his mum and the food was insane. I'm pretty disappointed with myself for not visiting already beforehand as I lived in Kelham Island for my first year of uni, but I know exactly what I'm like and I'll always stick to my same favourite restaurants rather than trying anything new unless someone else makes the decision for me (aka Tom's mum - I'm sorry for always being so fussy and I literally have you to thank for taking me here).

Catching Up with a Bestie & Eating out on Ecclesall Road | Mudcrab

If you're a student in Sheffield then you've most likely heard of Ecclesall Road, one of Sheffield's most highly student populated areas. As a second year, securing a house on Ecclesall Road was super exciting - although our student house had a lot of trouble living there and definitely didn't make the most of the area at all because of that. 

I've had a lot of time to myself since finishing second year, and more time to explore what actually lays in the heart of Ecclesall Road. I already knew there was pretty much everything when it came to big brands (Starbucks, Costa, Tesco, Nandos, Pizza Express etc.. you name it), however I'd definitely been neglecting the smaller independent restaurants and shops - I've found some pretty good finds and they'll be blog posts to follow.
