With my personal assignments nearly complete, and the group project well on its way, the task at hand is to stay engaged. Summer is breathing down the back of my neck as I try to focus and work, drawing me to all the beautiful attractions the Clemson area has to offer. My friends snapchats of boat parties on the lake everyday of the week do not help either.
In order to help me with staying engaged I have looked up many articles about the process, and discovered 6 ways that I have felt are helpful.
1. Learn something new (Price).
2. Reclaim your strengths (Price).
3. Express Gratitude (Price).
4. Recognize your value (Price).
5. Challenge the status quo (Price).
6. Take a break (Price).
These are different methods of keeping yourself involved with what you are supposed to be focusing on without having burnout. The main tip that I have been using is number 6. Taking a break. In my free time I make sure to watch movies, hangout with friends, and watch videos like this one to remnd me its almost summer:
