The mind knows every trick to divert from its actual direction. This is perfectly said for doing homework and assignments. I believe that it seems the most boring task of the world, trying to do homework. After school, even coming home feels like heavy duty and then there is assignments smirking in your bag! And you cannot avoid it either, or just lie like you did in your PE classes. There are grades involved and the upcoming exam. As if you don’t have enough pressures already?
But as I already mentioned that it’s almost impossible to avoid assignments and you shouldn’t too, it is better to find some better solutions to handle them rather fast. The first thing you should be focusing on is that low mood bar. In that down condition you can’t do anything and even if you force it will only be troublesome for later. Because there are going to be lots of mistakes as you didn’t feel like doing it after all!
The quickest way to uplift a down mood is by creating perfect assignment and homework environment. This sounds very odd but have you noticed that you may feel extraordinarily charged up when reading your favorite book or playing your favorite game while you were just too much tired a moment ago? That is because your environment is giving you energy to do things. So why not try some tricks for assignments? Let’s charge up with these environmental pushers.
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
- Get your desk settled in a zero distraction-zone:
This might seem like a challenge to you but make sure your desk is in such a place where should be not a single noise and obviously no toys. Not just your computer but your mobile phone is also to be silenced when you are focusing in the assignment. If necessary find a separate room with a well-lit area. If there is noisy family members like your baby brothers or sisters, tell your parents to cooperate and help keep them silent for your assignment period.
- Don’t stop yourself for taking rest:
You are not a superhuman! After coming home and that journey in school have its toll on your body. You need rest and for that don’t be hesitant. Get fresh and take rest or even better take a nap for one or two hours. But I meant rest and not playing games or going outdoors. They might be categorized in fun-time or break-time but not in a million mile rest time.
- Get your belly full:
Do you know what distracts more than anything? Yup it’s hunger and thirst! You can never concentrate when your belly is becoming noisy. After resting you need to take a meal. Make sure they are healthy. Don’t jump into sweets or ice cream. Neither do they fill your hunger properly nor are they good for your health. Picking between soups, oat meals, juice, fruits etc. were my favorites!
- Time to learn the importance of organization:
This is truth foretold that you will only learn the importance of something when you can’t find it in time! So get ready to organize necessary things on your desk or closer to it. Be sure you list what you need beforehand. Class notes, text books, supplementary, assignment guidance, important tools and files are to be stationed near your reach.
- Be ready to access help:
You may need help in understanding your assignment questions or that part as solution. Get some help from your parents or private tutors if necessary. If you find this is impossible at that moment then who cares? You have computer and an internet? Bingo! Find your assignment support from experienced teachers fast. These online websites are expert and quickest solution to your assignment problems.
- Take this opportunity to divide in parts:
No matter how energized you are never try to do assignments in one go. Take this chance and divide those problems to solve separately. You must choose different times and do other assignments and homework in between if you’re trying it on a same day. This way you won’t feel bore or lose focus. The pressure will be released by including other homework plan.
- Discuss in assignment time:
Your friends will be a great help if you prefer a group study. That way you can find good company and also discuss your assignment. Each problem can be attended with different perspectives which can be useful for grabbing different point of views. But I won’t advice it if you are easy to flow in conversation which has no connection with your assignment. Remember, that is to help in assignment and not to chit-chat or gossip.
- It is break-time:
Know your limit. You should never overdo things after your limit is crossed. This is not applicable for your assignments only. Place a clock near you and adjust its time after which the break-time comes. Do things that you like most. Remember that it is break time so just don’t grab another homework in this time. After this, your mood will be rejuvenated and will give extra energy to do assignments with full force once again!
If you are still feeling uncomfortable then you should know 5 reasons why students hate assignments and how to deal with them. That way your techniques to handle assignments will improve and the confidence level will increase.
“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”
So never stop to try again and again for great success in return!
