I'm starting college in less than two weeks!! In the past I would've been excited, I would've bought $200 worth of cute school supplies and clothes. But now I have lost motivation, even though this is a very important year for me with lots of opportunities. so let's get our lives together.

I have and always will make lists. Make lists of what you want for your future, what you want next month, what you want to do that day, or by the end of the year. Just make lists, like they work for me so well. I'm making a list of what I need to do when I'm 18 next month and what to do before I start college.

At my college, we have free mental health counselors. So hopefully they will be easy to talk to. Try to find someone, even churches have them for free. The best case scenario would be that you have a friend to talk to.

Just buy yourself something nice to pick yourself up. Go on a trip or something that will give your brain a little boost.

Do specific things that will reach towards your goals. Even calling to make an appointment with the counselor was a big thing to mark off cuz I'm so lazy lol.

If your diet is horrible and you look and feel horrible, you are just going to get much done. Get sleep, eat good, drink water, comb your hair, wear cute stuff. I need to figure myself out in this area lol. But I just got a new bike, and going on a ten minute bike ride actually tires me. It doesn't have to be anything crazy, just do basic healthy stuff that you've been hearing about your whole life.

I use to comb my hair and pray before bed. Little things like this go away when you don't care anymore. I have to start my good habits again to have a healthy routine. I want to spend time with God everyday again so I can have a good relationship with Him.

If you don't then your body will express it for you in ways you may not like. Just write or rant to someone or sing, like it's crucial to taking care of yourself.

I have spent a lot of time just being happy with my routine and my work but you have to find joy in your life with friends or pets or hobbies. My hobby is doll collecting, I know that's kind of unusual and some consider it a waste of money, but I think that if I didn't have that right now, I would not be as happy at all.

Write down what you gotta do. It's helpful to see a big picture of everything.
