It`s been a long tiresome day. You just want to sit back, relax and binge watch a few episodes of your favorite show while eating something. You want to take a nap. You want to go out and hang out with your friends. You want to play video games. But all through this wonderful day dreaming you are kind of nervous. You feel a single drop of sweat coming down your forehead, why is this? Why is this happening you wonder? There is something looming over you and then it hits you like a ton of bricks.
I have to do my homework!
Suddenly, all your plans are doomed and there is a dark rainy cloud following you around everywhere you go! But it doesn`t have to be like this, yes homework is a chore and a handful of people actually likes it but there are ways you can help yourself so that this experience goes as painlessly as it possibly can.
You knew this was coming, you know that you always leave everything for the last minute so you end up doing your homework all night in a caffeine induced craze! So, at least try, for the sake of your sanity and good sleep cycle. Try to do your homework as soon as possible after the initial lecture since this is the time all your acquired knowledge is still fresh. You will have a much easier time with your homework if you do it on the same day as when you heard all the things you need to do. There are amazing apps you can get that will keep all of your assignments and obligations organized. They will even send you notifications for classes with some time to spare so you don`t miss any important lectures!
When you are trying to do homework, every single thing looks more interesting. It is even harder to resist the temptation to procrastinate when things that are trying to distract you are actually interesting. You are trying to do your work but a chat head pops up. Your friend sent you a link. You know it`s something good, you must resist the urge to look at it but it`s impossible! Next thing you know three hours have passed and you are still at the title. When doing work try your best to stay focused. Designate a few hours a day when there is no messing around just work. It also helps if you have a place just for studying so when you go and sit down there your mind is ready to concentrate on the task at hand. If all of this doesn`t help there are even apps that will let you shut down certain applications for a period of time!
