3 Ways to Avoid That Mid-Semester Slump
As Fall classes fly by, students often find themselves feeling less motivated and more distracted. Use these simple tips to keep yourself focused and avoid the mid-semester slump:
- Remember your goals. When you feel like replacing study time with a new Netflix series, remind yourself that studying isn’t just important for tomorrow’s test--it’s an important step toward your certification and future career. Thinking about the whole reason you attended school in the first place is a great way to jumpstart your motivation.
- List your important dates and keep them visible. Laying out your test and project due dates neatly helps you budget your time and stay organized. Try using your list as a screensaver on your phone or posting it on your bedroom mirror. PRO TIP: Don’t forget to add that graduation date to your calendar!
- Set up a reward system. Each time you accomplish a task for your class, give yourself a little treat; this can be as simple as buying yourself an iced coffee after you finish a paper or treating yourself to a movie night. Having something to work toward encourages you to sit down and get the job done!
That’s it! Following these three steps is a simple way to avoid the mid-semester slump, and you’ll be certified before you know it!
