School is in full swing for the year, which means new and more homework for students. To help you de-stress from their take-home work, check out these tips from experts.
Practice good time management:
Having good time management is a good skill to have not only in school but for work and just life. However, when it comes to homework plotting out the time you need to complete your homework or assignment can quickly make what seems like an overwhelming task much less stressful to approach.
Try using a school planner, set time aside to complete your tasks and allow yourself enough time to complete your work.
Allow more time for areas you find difficult:
Try taking practice tests or write practice essays and focus on the areas you find the hardest. With more practice, your homework will become less stressful. This practice will also make it easier when the time comes to sit the exam or hand in your assignment.
Procrastination could well be the biggest factor responsible for homework stress. You’d be surprised at how much time you can waste by putting off what you need to do until you’ve checked out your Facebook page or watch your favorite tv show or movie. Instead of using these as procrastination tools, have these be rewards for once your work is actually done.
