In today’s day and age, it is rare that you come across a student of any level that says they are not stressed, concerned or anxious about one thing or another. To some degree, stress can be a good thing, even a motivator. However, I’ve found that I need to recognize when those opportunities arise that will allow me to be successful in taking advantage of my stress. I have read many a book and listened to many a podcast about this topic so I feel confident in that I know what I’m talking about. That being said, I’m not an expert. I hope you come away with a useful trick or two and feel more reassured by your stress level.
Before I get into the nitty gritty of this post, the places I’ve included are not exclusive to providing blog post inspiration. They are good sources of inspiration for all types of writing. No matter what kind of writing you do, what’s important is that you are writing. Even the most dedicated of writers can get down, feel uninspired and unmotivated – it’s natural, expected and completely okay. Today, I will be sharing with you the places I turn to and the things I do in order to keep the creative spark alive in my noggin.

Some of these suggestions you may have heard before and others may have you scratching your head – give ’em a shot and I’d love to hear your feedback! As promised via Twitter, at the end of today’s post I’m sharing some ultra exciting news with y’all.

One of the reasons I love fall so much is because of all of the coziness going around: fuzzy fleece blankets, cuddling while watching a movie, and big bowls of soup. That’s great and all, but I’ll be the first to admit that trying to keep warm while running errands takes a lot out of me. Because of this, I make sure to have a few key items always stocked in my kitchen so that when I come home, I don’t have to make too much fuss whipping up something to eat. Here are my cold weather kitchen essentials!
