When Competition is High and Motivation Goes Down


In order to score well it is essential to study hard which is only possible if you stay motivated all through your academic session. Different students are motivated to study owing to different factors. However, there are times when one tends to loose motivation. Let us see as to what should be done during such times so as to regain motivation:

Motivational Factor
Begin by reminding yourself as to why it is important for you to score well in the upcoming exam. What impact would the exam result have on your professional and personal life? Try to analyse as to what would be the repercussions of scoring low in the exam and you will feel the force driving you to
gear up again.

Many a times we overlook the importance of setting goals. Lack of any set targets or goals is another reason why the motivation tends to dither. However, do not go overboard with the idea. Set realistic goals and work hard to achieve them. It is a good idea to reward yourself on every little achievement so as to stay motivated.

Meditation is a good way to boost your power to concentrate, stay disciplined and motivated. It is thus suggested to practice it for at least 15 minutes on a daily basis. You may find it hard to meditate initially however soon you will look forward to it.

Squeezing in 25-30 minutes to exercise each day keeps you fit, energized and also helps in keeping your motivation level high. You can simply go for walk, try cycling, swimming, aerobics, yoga or any other such activity. The idea is to include a physical activity such as these in your daily routine.

Studying day after day, following the same routine can get quite monotonous and may cause a dip in motivation. Don’t try to drag things if you find yourself in such a situation. Take a break and indulge in any activity of your choice. This would help you rejuvenate and start with greater motivation.
