It’s springtime, and for high school students like myself, the year’s end can’t come fast enough. Personally, I only have about two weeks left and I can’t wait to be done with school work and enjoy summer with fewer responsibilities. Unfortunately, I can’t give up just yet and need to stay motivated. But this is difficult, tiring, and daunting. So here are some tips to stay motivated through the end-of-school-year fatigue:
- Don’t study hungry. Grab some popcorn or fruit to keep you going.
- Find a new study space. Switch it up from your normal spot.
- Take a shower or wash your face.
- Crack a window or study outside. Get some fresh air and sunlight.
- Limit distractions, only allowing yourself to watch Netflix once your work is done.
- Turn your phone off or leave it in another room.
- Keep a bottle of water near you and drink it frequently.
- Exercise once in a while. Either as a study break or a study motivator.
- Make a list of things you need to do, and when you need to have those things done.
- Clean your room or your study space.
- Take frequent but short study breaks. Try timing them if you get easily distracted.
- Set a schedule and stick to it. You’ll feel productive and organized.
- Try color-coding or using post-it notes to study. This can be more fun and colorful.
- If all else fails, try watching Shia LeBeouf’s “Just Do It” motivational video.
