As we near the end of semester stress levels are at an all time high. Projects, presentations, term papers, and final exams are pretty much the only thing on any students mind.
For me, this semester has been the busiest of all. Over the last four months, I have slowly learned how to stop procrastinating, and not feel as stressed about the mountains of work I have to do. Here are some of the tips I taught myself along the way:
1. Write a to-do list.
2. Separate projects into smaller sections, and do a section a day.
3. Use an agenda!!! Spread out what needs to be done over each day so you can look at it and know what needs to be done by which date. This also helps remind you of important due dates coming up.
4. Don’t make a project seem bigger than it is. Breaking the tasks down help ease the workload, and allows the projects seem less daunting.
5. Start the project with the soonest due date. Getting something done before the due date is the best way to relieve stress.
