How to actually ENJOY studying. | Motivation for Back to School!

What are 3 reasons you love learning?
Welcome to the final episode of Summer of Self with a back to school and back to university theme: Why you should love learning! I hope this gives you motivation to study or revise, to work hard and study for exams. It can be hard to find motivation to study hard for exams when you don’t enjoy the intrinsic process of studying — I hope this video inspires you to reflect on why learning is valuable to you!
