Christmas break getting you off track?

Here are just a few tips for countering those procrastinating thoughts when it gets close to the holiday break.

First, try your hardest to stay focused at school. I know this is a hard task for most of us at school anyways but the best thing to do is get your work done the weeks before breaks so that you don’t have to worry about it. Also, ending for breaks with good grades will let you enjoy your break more than if your failing 7 classes and you have 3 projects.

Second, while doing homework and studying make sure you are relaxed and not distracted. I know, for me at least, I like to comfortable and I like doing the hardest thing first so then you can work quickly to get to the easy stuff. If you have a TV on or your on Facebook I recommend you turn it off or log out or at least stay focused and try not to ignore the the work completely.

Third, I feel the best thing to do is to do your work with friends in the same class or study in groups. This way you can still be talking to friends and hanging out while discussing your work.
