It’s getting to that point in the semester when you’ll be getting more and more work piled on to you, and/or you have to catch up on everything you’ve been procrastinating on. We’ve certainly been through it, and isn’t easy. However, there are some things you can do to get through this crunch time in the semester.
Make a to-do list. Writing down a list of things you need to get done by the end of the day, the end of the week, and/or the end of the month can be really helpful. It not only helps you to organize your thoughts, but it will also help you to remember everything. It’s really easy to forget when you have a lot of stuff on your plate. Writing everything down like this, in an organized list, can also help you to de-stress, because you may just realize that you really don’t have that much more to do.
Prioritize. This is probably the most important you can do to get through this time in the semester. You may even want to prioritize your to-do lists and make yourself a note of the things that you should get done first and what things can wait.
Take small breaks. It’s a good idea to take small breaks in between working, as it can help you keep focused and give you time to collect your thoughts while you do your work. Maybe you want to work for 30 minutes, and then take a 5-minute break. Or, maybe you want to work for an hour and take a 10-minute break. It’s completely up to you.
We know that it’s coming to be a difficult time in the semester when you’ve got a lot of stuff going on. However, it’s important to make sure that you get through this time so you can finish off the semester on a good note. By making a to-do list, prioritizing, and taking small breaks in between your work, you can help ensure that you successfully make it through this crunch time in the semester.
