Study Tips(Pages 1 – 2 – 3)
Use your daily planner to avoid being overwhelmed by work!
It only takes one or two missing assignments to feel overwhelmed, as if you are in a hole you can’t dig out of. A simple solution – start with the daily planner. If there is one thing that separates students who are calmly managing their load and those who are stressed out, it is strong planner skills. Start building good habits: challenge yourself for one full week to take that planner into every single class and write something down in the space provided for homework – even if “no homework today” is written. Then, use that planner as a check sheet at home. As each assignment is completed, cross it out. The sense of accomplishment from crossing items off the list is very motivating. It might take a little while to get back on track, but it will happen, and the stress clouds will fly away!
