Scape resident Trisha shares her tips for staying motivated during the semester.

Staying motivated during the university semester can be a challenging task, especially when you’re juggling coursework, exams, and the various pressures of student life. Today we’re sharing some invaluable motivation tips from Scape resident, Trisha. Trisha offers practical advice and shares her personal experiences on how to maintain a positive mindset, take productive breaks, and prioritise self-care.



1. Be in the Right Mindset

Trisha understands the struggle of staying motivated, especially when faced with the pressures of university life. She encourages students to start by cultivating the right mindset. Trisha’s own perspective shifted when she realised that her journey as a student isn’t about perfection; it’s about learning and growing. “I’m actually here as a student, which means I’m learning something that I’ve never done before. That is the point of school. Once I remember that I don’t have to do everything perfectly, because I’m a student and students are allowed to make mistakes,” she emphasises. Trisha’s message resonates with students who often find themselves comparing their progress to others. Remember, you’re here to learn and have fun in the process!



2. Taking Small Breaks During the Day

Trisha’s second tip revolves around the importance of taking breaks to recharge. She suggests stepping out into nature, even if it means taking the scenic route home. Melbourne’s cityscape offers numerous opportunities for students to explore and rejuvenate.



3. Switch up Your Study Locations

Trisha also recommends switching up your study locations. At Scape Melbourne Central, you have access to a bustling urban environment, providing a variety of study spots. Seeing fellow students focused on their work can be motivating, reminding you that you’re not alone in this journey. A change of scenery can work wonders for your motivation.



4. Take Care of Yourself

Trisha emphasises the significance of self-care during the semester. Simple steps like cooking nutritious meals instead of relying on takeout can make a big difference. As a Scape resident, you have access to the facilities needed to prepare your meals conveniently. She also encourages students to move their bodies, utilising the gyms available at Scape. Regular physical activity can boost your energy levels and improve your overall well-being.

Trisha’s tips offer valuable insights into staying motivated and maintaining a healthy balance during the university semester. By adopting the right mindset, taking well-deserved breaks, and prioritising self-care, you can navigate your academic journey with confidence and resilience. Remember, you’re not alone, and Scape provides an ideal environment to support your academic and personal growth.
