Ten Ways to Stop Procrastinating in School:
Manage your time: make a schedule for what you need to get done by what day.
Make your own due dates: make a day for yourself to set a goal to get a particular assignment done, even if it’s before the actual due date.
Get the hard stuff done first: work on assignments for a class that you may struggle with or have a lot of work in, first.
Take breaks: taking a break can really help ease your mind, try listening to music, taking a walk, or maybe a 15 minute power nap.
Stay organized: becoming unorganized makes trying to finish work even harder, stay organized with notes and assignments using notecards, sticky notes and reminders.
Time yourself: when trying to do a hard assignment it takes a toll on you. Set a timer for about 60 minutes and take a break from that assignment.
Break your work into chunks: trying to tackle everything at once is stressful. Breaking up your work throughout your week will make your work seem more manageable.
Do NOT get behind: Getting behind in any class is something that leads many students to procrastinate. Getting into a habit of staying up to date on all your work will make you less likely to want to procrastinate.
Watch out for distractions: Distractions are everywhere like YouTube, Netflix, games and many more. When making time to do your work, make time to do those things as well just not at the same time.
Don’t Stress: Stressing through your work makes everything worse. Take your time, take breaks, and don’t stress. You want to strive to be your best, but don’t over work yourself.
