@Haruyou:  Are you getting some fresh air and exercise? I find that helps me concentrate.

@Haruyou:  What year are you in? I would simplly tell myself that I wasn’t going to waste all the time and money I had aready put into the program.

You have a choice to do the work now, or fail and have to do it all over again.

@Haruyou:  as for your major, maybe you can find another avenue similar to kinesiology that is less demanding? 

If you want to stick it out,  how much longer do you have? I have been in school for 4 years and am currently in my last semester. So many times I am burnt out, I don’t want to study etc. I procrastinate, doing anything possible but study or write papers. One thing that helps is talking to others in my program. I also will peruse the net looking at things I want to do or buy someday….vacation spots, expensive clothing or furniture. I think about being able to help care for my family and have financial stability for retirement.

All those things help me push past the rough patches.

I also have a set schedule every week including study times. When I have to study at home I reward myself with one of my favorite snacks and a soda (which I don’t eat or drink otherwise). If I go to the library I reward myself with a specialty coffee from my favorite cafe. 

Ya know, its the little things.

The time you spend in school is a drop in the bucket compared to the lifetime of a great career you’ll have. Just keep truckin’ and you’ll be fine!! It’s all about perspective πŸ™‚ Work hard now, play hard later

I know what you are feeling! Sometimes its okay to just push through and forget how you feel! In the end you will be proud of yourself!
