How to stop procrastination

how

dis

One of these days I’m going to get help for my procrastination problem.

We’ve all had this thought once or maybe even twice today. Procrastinating always seems like the best idea until it’s close to midnight and your assignment is due in a couple minutes. It’s time to break the vicious cycle. Here are a couple tips to help you stop procrastinating once and for all.

Tip #1: Take it a few minutes at a time. 

If you only have 5 minutes to do a task then how would you go about doing it? If the task seems too large then just start by working on a small part of it. A few minutes might turn into a couple hours and then next thing you know you’re done with the task.

Tip #2: Get organized.

HOW TO STUDY FOR FINALS LIKE A BOSS!

INSPIRED

Ugh, finals. Now looking back you think, “Wait, what did we even learn the first month of the semester? All I can remember about January was binge-watching Friends on Netflix.” We understand, we too couldn’t keep our eyes off of Joey Tribbiani in season 4. Those times are over! Now it’s time to roll up those sleeves and get to work! We have a few tips before you embark on your journey.

1. GET RID OF YOUR DISTRACTIONS

There are countless things that could distract you from studying for finals. Take everything that might distract you; such as your smartphone, remote controller, or pager (if you live in 1991) and follow these simple steps. Step one. Place items on the ground. Step two. Place bowl over the items. Step four. Place three more bowls around the items. Step five. Place desk on top of these bowls. Now study. Every time you want to check your phone you’ll realize the hassle it’ll be and you won’t do it! #Genius

2. GET YOUR PREP ON

You’re just about to crack open that calculus book when suddenly you realized you left your calculator on campus. “Time for a small detour!”, you say to yourself as you leave your desk. You run to your locker and suddenly, on the way back, you bump into your crush from Anatomy 101. Fate might have it that you’re both hungry and decide to get a bite to eat. All the while your window of time to study gets smaller and smaller. You hurry back home with your calculator, but it’s too late. You have to rush to your part-time job at the local grocery store.

This story might sound weirdly too specific, but you get the point. Give yourself a little time to prep for your study sessions. Get every material that you’ll need before you sit down.
