How to Remain Focused at the End of the School Year
By Sam Ortiz
It’s springtime. The year is coming to a close and it’s easy to fall behind. Here are some ways you can refocus yourself
1. Make to-do lists for yourself. It’s a good way of keeping track of the tasks you need to accomplish. Whether it’s schoolwork or daily tasks, writing a to-do list ensures you won’t forget anything you need to do.
2. Schedule your day. If to-do lists don’t work for you, and you need something a bit more precise, you could schedule your day by designating specific tasks to specific times. Whenever I do this for myself, I find that it helps me more easily motivate myself to get up and do things.
3. Take breaks every once in a while. It’s easy to fall into the mindset that breaks can do more harm than good. Letting yourself relax every once in a while will improve your productivity and quality of work in the long run. But also remember- too much of a good thing can turn out to be bad, so balance your working and resting sessions evenly.
Hopefully these tips will help you.
Do your best and remember that summer is not too far away!
