Happy New Year! With the New Year comes new topics and the first topic of this year is homework loads. Now homework can be annoying and exhausting in every sense of the word, so I am going to give you some tips on how to deal with them.
First, get rid of any unhelpful distractions. This means phones, computers, and any other things that are not helping you to conquer the homework monster and/ or could tempt you to stop working. Do this by muting or turning off devices and putting them out of arms reach, If you are one of those people who their phone is like (quote from my history teacher), "A mosquito bite you can't help but itch," then turn off your phone, put it in another room, and maybe even put it in a drawer if you have to. We all know that if we start using our phones in the middle of doing homework that we will say to our selves, "Just five minutes." Then, an hour later, we will say, "Just 2 minutes." It's ok, we all do it sometimes, but we can all try any get better about it and be more productive! I know this is going to sound REALLY annoying, but seriously, the less you are on your phone, the quicker the homework to-do pile goes away!
Second, you know you are going to get up in the middle of doing homework to get food or water. So, just grab everything you need BEFORE you start to climb Mount Homework so you don't have to walk all the way back down the mountain in the middle because you forgot your backpack at the rest stop.
Lastly, you have to have the mindset of just pushing through that pain of doing homework and just GET IT DONE. The harder you focus, the faster you get up that mountain but, if you forget your backpack at the rest stop, then it is going to take you a lot longer to summit.
So grab your pencil and backpack and go summit Mount Homework!
