Hi, everyone! Are you ever in that position where you are feeling like, “Ahhhh! So much homework”? I know I am.
Here are Five Life Hacks to Get You Through Dreadful but ‘Fun’ Homework.
- Before you start working, make sure your work area is clean!
Because homework and dirty workspace do not equal good grades.
- Look at your Steppingstone planner and decide which assignments are easier and which take more time.
Do the easier ones first (trust me on this).
- Chew gum while you work!
It helps you focus better.
- Plug in your earbuds and rock on!
Okay, maybe not rock on. You could listen to some calming classical music (My personal favorite is the Piano Playlist on Spotify).
- Take breaks between every few assignments.
For example, if the average amount of Steppingstone homework is two hours, then you can break for a total of thirty minutes.
I hope you enjoyed these life hacks!
