This quick and unexpected switch from our normal education brings stress and anxiety to many of us. Here are some tips and tricks to keep yourself focused on keeping grades up for the final stretch of the year.

The first tip is to set your alarm for a consistent time every school day of the week. This will help add some structure and help you get your work done quicker. If you have a structured schedule at home, you will feel more on task and focused on your schoolwork.

The next trick is to take breaks! It’s okay to get up from your computer here or there to take a quick walk around the house or grab a glass of water. Sometimes just leaving your work for a little to get some blood pumping helps you focus better when you come back to finish what you started.

The final and most helpful tip is to put your phone away. Hide it, bury it in the yard, or put it in the other room! Having your phone beside you and no teacher to yell at you when you get consumed by social media can definitely hurt your grades.

So, do yourself a favor this final marking period — start by waking up at a consistent time to begin your schoolwork. It is definitely worth it to walk around for a little and take some breaks from work. The best thing you can do is get your phone away and get that work finished!
