Hey there! I’m so excited to be doing this collab with Christina–thanks for letting me do this, it’s been so fun 🙂 I know at least most (if not all) of us often have trouble staying focused while doing homework, so today I’ll be talking about five different ways that you can stay engaged until everything is done.
- Set aside your phone until all your work is done. Our phones and devices can be so distracting, so it’s super helpful if you just turn off your phone or put it in a different room where you won’t be notified every time a friend texts you–this way, you won’t get distracted by the seemingly endless notifications that go off. Not only will this serve as a kind of reward after your schoolwork, but it will keep you focused on the work you need to get done.
- Have structured breaks. Breaks are pretty much essential when working on homework (unless you have very little to do), but it’s also really tempting to extend your breaks for a lot longer than you originally intend for them to last. For this reason, I recommend structuring your breaks and setting a timer so you know exactly how long you have and are notified when it’s time to get back to work.
- Limit the amount of music you listen to. For me personally, it’s so easy to listen to music throughout the whole school day. But in reality, silence will help you to focus on your work more diligently, and it will help you think clearer when you’re not occasionally singing the lyrics to your favorite songs. Especially when doing analysis, deep thinking, and studying, it’s important to stay 100% focused on the work you’re doing. If you prefer listening to music just so it’s not dead silent, try putting on classical music or something without distracting lyrics that you’ll want to sing along to.
- Get the hardest thing done first. It’s so tempting to do all the easy tasks right away and save the hardest assignment for when you’re tired and worn out, but completing the most challenging thing first will be so beneficial when you’re trying to finish everything quickly.
- Plan out everything. If you’re like me, you probably love to plan out your days! Writing out everything that you need to get done on a planner or something similar will keep you on task and remind you of everything that needs to get done.
I know this was on the shorter side, but hopefully it was helpful for you as you tackle new loads of homework and school! 💛
