How do you keep motivation throughout the day? I find myself always tired and exhausted with no energy for anything. I can’t even make myself do online homework most days

      Honestly for many years my kids and now my grandchildren are the only reason I get out of this bed I’ve thought many times about killing myself or purposely overdosing. The thing is I know that would cause my kids and grandchildren pain. How could they ever truly believe how much I love them, if I would purposely and willfully cause them that much pain. I just don’t have it in me to cause them pain. I’ve spent my whole life trying to protect them from it. It would leave me a total and complete liar for a legacy.

      I convince myself to do one thing that feels manageable. Then I see how I feel and go from there. If I need a break or rest, then I do that. If I feel up to another thing, the do that.

      omg i def know what you’re talking about. it’s hard to do anything when all of the days are so similar and blend together maybe try setting small goals for yourself? like take it one day at a time, and once your motivation becomes consistent you can think about bigger things this depends on the type of person you are but having a designated studying area helps a lot for me it’s my university’s library i cannot do anything at home haha

      I love your username @rockfriend 💕 For me I have to have someone holding me accountable. I'm not a student, but in terms of gymstuff, I have to go to a gym class instead of just going to work out. Maybe you could have a study group in your class even if its just virtual

      I think what I had learn is that with covid around and staying home all day the home an the isolation makes it harder for us to stay motivated so maybe I would advice to do things you never done before around the house maybe that will help just get out of bed take you laptop if you have one and do homework somewhere else

        @Genn i have definitely found that taking my ipad and sitting in a parking lot helps me focus a lot more than at home
