Expat Life

Let’s just be completely honest here. Being an online student is not fun. Around a year ago when my high school classes first started going online I was excited about being able to wake up later and not having to wear a uniform to virtual school, but those little novelties have quickly worn off. I’m now a college freshman in my second semester, and I’ve been spending pretty much every day on Zoom. I’ve been hearing from a lot of people that they’re struggling to find motivation in this online environment, which is why I wanted to write this post. I by no means have it all figured out! I also have days where I just feel super unmotivated and procrastinate everything, but I thought I would share some of my experience and advice here to hopefully help you!

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about the importance of building a morning routine, and I shared a resource for building your own morning routine.

All you have to do is follow this tutorial on your own, and you’re ready to go

I’ve been seeing the ‘5am Morning Routine’ trend going around on YouTube where people share their productive morning routines on their channels. I used to be all about waking up early and setting the tone of my day with a healthy morning routine, but I have to say that this hasn’t really happened over the past few months. If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know that I’m attending my first year of college virtually with a 9 hour time difference, so it’s been a bit difficult to keep normal routines!
