Say What?
Hello everyone!
I hope you all are having a good weekend!
This issue, I want to share a little about keeping ourselves motivated. Hopefully it’s be useful for you, especially if you’re having a hard time at work or university! :)

I’m sure some, if not most, of you would have probably gone through this sometime in your past. You might be at university or at work, and you just feel like everything was crashing in and you wanted to find a way out. You feel burnt out and tired and you just wanted to escape from real world for a little.
That was me last year when I started my Master’s journey. I was feeling too overwhelmed with my Master’s studies and managing everything in my life that I felt the need to go and talk to my University’s Wellbeing advisors.. One of the suggestions that they provided was to find a side project to keep me busy. This newsletter was born because of that reason - my need to find something new to keep me inspired and motivated.
Sometimes, when you’re overwhelmed with life, it’s important to have something that is not related to work or studies to keep your fire going. It doesn’t have to be something big, it can be a simple and small thing. For me, it’s writing (either the blog or this newsletter). For other people, it may be singing or playing the guitar, or drawing, or even going out for a run.
5 Incredible, Research-Backed Benefits of Having a Passion Outside Work |
We all have the same 24 hours in a day, but what do we actually do with our 24 hours? How can some people create magnificent work of art or music, while we’re just there leading a normal life?
How many hours daily do we waste on useless things like scrolling our social media feed (guilty of it here)? What about when we’re waiting for the bus or train to get to work? Could we have used all those little times for a personal project? We can definitely all find the time to do what we love, and not put our work or studies as an excuse.
This is perhaps something that I need to work on myself too. I probably wasted a lot of time recently (on social media), when I could’ve used it to work on the many different projects that I have going on. I keep on telling myself that I don’t have time to work on the projects, but in all honesty, I do and I should do better at managing what I do with my time.
But, for now, at least for a few more weeks, I want to enjoy not having to worry about anything and wait until graduation. I think I deserved it, at least after the past one year :D

At least I’ve been quite productive with updating my blog recently, so I guess that’s a positive sign. If you haven’t already, do have a read of these two posts! I’m also working on a few more at the moment, so hopefully I can get those out soon!

Wrapping up.
As always, here’s a question for you to end the issue this week.
What’s holding you back from being the person you want to become? And could you do anything to remove the barrier(s)?
Until I see you again in two weeks’ time, take care & stay awesome! :)
