Homework got you down?

The week after break and the week before finals are always the hardest of all homework weeks, or at least it appears that way to me. Homework and finals are always stressful, but I always do a few things to lessen the load and decrease the stress.

Most of the time when I’m stressed out the best thing for me to do is to go to lacrosse practice. It requires me to do physical activity and it gets my mind off of school and the homework that lay ahead. Anything that you love, that being lacrosse for me or art or maybe even video games, can help to relieve some stress.

When I sit down to do my homework and I have a lot on my plate I always like to make a list of the things I need to do. I usually do this in the notes section of my iPhone because I’m always using my phone and I can delete things immediately after I’m done. You can also go buy a scheduling book from the school store if you prefer.

While I’m working I like to get everything done in a single sitting. Taking breaks or having the TV on usually distract me so I like to get things done as fast as possible. It’s different for everyone though, you might like listening to music or maybe even taking multiple breaks.

That’s just a few things that I like to do when I’m doing my homework such as right now. Whether or not you do the work is up you.
