Do you ever find you get stuck in a rut? That your surroundings irritate you and you’re constantly distracted by the smallest things!?

Usually when this happens I find it’s time to change up my usual surroundings, even in just a small way. If you’re a student there are a few ways you can do this; try changing the place you study or if you’re stuck in your bedroom try putting on different music. It can all get a bit monotonous! If you work in an office it can be a bit harder to mix up your surroundings but when I was working full time in an office I found it really helpful to change desks occasionally. There always seemed to be a spare desk somewhere and spending an afternoon sitting near different people really helped keep me alert.

On Tuesday I spent the day in Brighton and it was so nice to have a change of scenery. I got the train down early and headed to Anna’s for what we call a “study day”. I love writing blog posts on the train, it’s so quiet and calming and I work really well when there are other people around so I got loads of work done throughout the day. I also found it really inspiring walking out and about in Brighton during our lunch break, just being able to walk along the sea front really helped clear my mind.

Throughout January Starbucks are encouraging you to try something new and make your day that little bit more exciting. They’re offering the chance to personalise your drink at no extra cost for the whole month. So if you manage to break away, even just for a quick break, go wild with the syrups – I will be!
