1. Sometimes procrastinating is the only way to get things done. With so many deadlines running together it is sometimes easier to finish them closer to the day they are due; However, procrastinating too close to the deadline is NOT a good thing.
2. Stay organized. Keep a binder to separate your different activities and keep the contents divided with labeled dividers. Also keep ONE calendar with everything on your schedule in it. Keeping separate calendars could possibly result in double booking something. I have one small calendar I keep on me at all times, so if anyone asks me about a date, I can easily access it and give them an answer.
3. Do not stress. Just stay calm and think of what you need to do. Creating a to-do list will help your brain not feel so scattered. You have to start somewhere and by checking off the first chore on your list, it’s just one less thing. By the time you scratch off all the chores you will be all done and have plenty of time to relax.
4. Take advantage of free time. During the school year, I was put in three study hall periods after lunch on the days I didn’t have a college class. During that time, I tried to get all of my written homework finished so after school I could run any errands to help my family and use the rest of the night at home to study, cook, or rest.
