Motivational YouTube Channels Perfect for Mundane Days

Being homeschooled throughout high school, I learned that sometimes the environment you work in can have an effect on how efficiently you operate. There were days when I woke up with this super productive, kick-butt attitude and the minute I started doing any load of work, boom. Energy gone. Just a few hours into the day and I’d be dragging my feet through the hours ahead of me.

If you work at home, you know the feeling. When you have complete control of your time and your workload, but no one around you, it’s easy to lose momentum. I started to turn to YouTube for “Work with Me” video’s to have a little motivation as I worked through my assignments and when I did, I ended up discovering channels that offered really neat, uplifting lifestyle videos:

If you find yourself in a rut, try taking a peek at these channels for a boost of productive energy.

Kalyn Nicholson

You have to be careful when offering motivating content from a “look at what I did” or “watch me” perspective in order to keep from seeming conceited. Kalyn offers this kind of content in such a way that doesn’t give this impression at all but rather gets you up and moving with her. Her videos cover a variety of lifestyle related things, but I would say the main overall theme is living a healthy, happy, and generally organized life.

Study Vibes

If you are in college or taking some sort of educational course and appreciate study groups, you might like this channel. All it is made up of is a series of live study with me video’s. These video’s can be played in the background as you do whatever work you have to do. Some videos have music accompanying them and some don’t, so you are free to choose whatever works for you in the moment.

Thomas Frank

Another productivity focused YouTube channel, but with less of a focus on making the video pretty and more focus on the methods, tools, tricks, and tips you can use to be the most productive person you can be. Thomas Frank aims his videos at college students and entrepreneurs, every video offering unique advice for either or.


I love the style of Lavendaire’s videos. Like Kaelyn’s channel, they are consistently the same upbeat, positive theme. Lavendaire as a whole channel covers lifestyle, design, food, and more. My personal favorites from lavendaire are, of course, her success videos. She covers vision boards, journaling, planning, advice for creatives, routines, and more!

Alexis aka Miss Trenchcoat

I found this YouTube channel when looking for video’s on planning advice and Miss Trenchcoat offers this and awesome advice for creatives. Her focus is more towards discussing planning systems and how to choose what works for you, but she always manages to add in helpful advice for entrepreneurs and creatives.

  1. Yes, SO with you on Kalyn, I ADORE her! I’m also going to be checking out a few more that you’ve mentioned here, I’m in a serious need of motivation this week as I’ve hit a slump so bad! Another favourite of mine is Cherry Wallis, though she isn’t typically on the same page when it comes to being a get stuff done kind of channel, she’s more into hauls, crafty DIY’s and a huge dose of Harry Potter and anything else connected to the Wizarding World – I love her though for her upbeat and happy persona and enthusiasm, she helps to put me in the right frame of mind so that I have even a slight hope of getting motivated!

  2. I use the Motivation Addict’s videos to keep my mindset pumped while I am about to start just about anything on any day! Sometimes just hearing that I can and will be successful before I even start, helps my mindset stay right as I work through things Thanks for sharing.
