Keeping Motivated During Covid

Posted 30 Mar 2020

It's easy to feel a lack of motivation and slip into bad routines whilst you're spending a considerable amount of time inside. We've put together a daily checklist of things you can do to stay motivated throughout these tough times:

  • Something for the soul

When is the last time you read a book, meditated or practiced yoga? These are all great ways to zone out of what's currently going on in the world and enjoy a bit of you time. There are plenty of specialists out there providing free meditation workshops and yoga classes, or why not follow us on Instagram where we'll be uploading a weekly yoga routine by our qualified instructor Rosie.

  • Something for the brain

If your university is continuing to supply virtual lectures, it's important to take notes and complete the work that is set. Ensure you set-up a comfortable work station with everything you require to study and keep focused.

  • Something for the body

It's been proven that exercising for as little as 10-minuter per day can make you instantly feel happier! You only need a small space in your house/flat for a fat burning workout or to build up your core strength. Why not have a go at our leg and glute home workout.

  • Something outside

If you have a garden - lucky you! Otherwise providing it's safe to do so, ensure you get out once a day for a change of scenery and some exercise. Alternate between different types of exercise including walking, running and cycling on different days to mix things up!

  • Something productive

We all have life admin that we can easily push to one side and forget about. Now is the the perfect time to crack on and set-up that new bank account you've been meaning to open or sell those jeans you've outgrown on Depop.

  • Something New

It's time to get creative and learn a new skill or try something you haven't done before! Have you always wanted to learn a new language, but never had the time? Duolingo is a free platform with bite-size lessons to make learning a new language fun and easy! Alternatively, maybe you're more of a cook and would like to try baking a new creation just in time for Easter Sunday!

  • Something Social

Just because you can't meet up with your friends doesn't mean you can't have a good old catch-up on the phone. Use this opportunity to connect with those friends or relatives you haven't had the chance to speak to for a while. If you'd rather have a video call there are also plenty of Apps including House Party and Zoom. House Party is a great one for group video conversations and has built in entertainment including quizzes, drawing games and more!
