Writing a thesis or dissertation takes a lot of hard work and dedication. If you are approaching the idea of your dissertation with a negative attitude, it is going to feel like climbing Mount Everest. Instead, you can remain positive throughout the process and enjoy what you are doing. The amount of knowledge you are going to gain through this process is priceless and no one can take that away from you.
Here are some ways to stay positive when you are trying to complete your dissertation.
Overcome your nerves
Often times you do not start your dissertation because it just seems like too big a task for you to handle. Of course this is an important part of completing your studies and you want to do well, but do not let your nerves get the better of you. You can always hire a PhD dissertation writing service, but you are trying to do this all by yourself. I take my hat off to anyone trying to do their own dissertation without the help of experts. Don’t be too hard on yourself and do something to help get your nerves under control
Start the process
There is no getting away from starting and completing your dissertation, unless you want to just quit and throw away all the hard work you’ve done so far. You are going to finish the race, but before you can get there, you have to start the process. Professional thesis writers make a career out of this, so it is not the easiest thing to accomplish, but you have it in you to do it. All your studies have prepared you for this moment, so take a deep breath and start with the first word.
Take care of your health
The most important factor in this process is yourself. If you are not taking care of yourself, you are not going to have the ability to give your best. Eat healthy foods that boost your brain power and exercise to give you stamina for those late nights. A healthy body and a healthy mind can take you a long way, but without it, you might crash and burn. Aim to get enough sleep as well. Our brain function drops on little sleep, but thrive on the right amount of sleep (which is still up for debate).
Ask for help
Just because you are a hero in my eyes if you complete your dissertation on your own, it is acceptable to reach out for help. There is nothing wrong with speaking to others who can help make this process a little easier. Finding help with thesis writing should not be that difficult either. You can speak to your professors for advice or speak to those who have already completed the process. Your dissertation tutor is obviously the first person you should speak to because you have been assigned a tutor for a reason.
I do not mean a minute break, but take an entire day off if you feel yourself becoming overwhelmed. If you planned properly and did not procrastinate, you should have enough time to take a day off here or there. This helps you refresh and rest, which is a great way to find new inspiration and stamina to continue. Do not stress or think about your dissertation on your day off because it defeats the purpose. Do something you have been missing out on, like relaxing with a friend or just catching up on some television. Whatever will make you happy on your day off, do that.
One of the best ways to stay positive, is to tell yourself that you are capable of doing this well. There should be no doubt in your mind that this is just too much for you to handle. Believe in yourself and in what you have learned throughout your studies. No one just reaches this point without a lot of hard work and dedication. Find your motivation and continue to remain positive. You have everything it takes to do this and you are going to do it well. I believe in you. Now, believe in yourself.
No one ever said that a dissertation is easy and that is because it is not. Think about the achievement you will reach after you complete your thesis and you will find the willpower to continue. Always stay inspired and motivated in you want to do well. Find out what makes you happy and do it as often as you can while completing your dissertation. You have come so far in your studies and you never gave up. Don’t give up now because the finish line is in sight. Seeing as you are not going to quit, you might as well make this a positive memory for the future.
