If you are a college/university student then you clearly know that there are to much work to do, due dates and exams… stressful right?!!!
In this post I would like to share with you some things that I learned and still do it to overcome the stress and be more organized and productive during the semester 👍🏻
1. Be organized
It’s very important for a student to be organized (it’s part of learning & preparation for the work environment). Make sure that you make a clear calendar for yourself for the current semester including all the [assignments submissions, midterms, due dates, presentations, exams, etc.]. This will help you track and stay on the flow all the semester.
2. Do your work
Many of us if not all of us procrastinate and leave the work to be done the night before it’s due, which is a massive stress for a person to handle! But why putting yourself in that situation when you can do it earlier?!🙄 honestly the best thing I learned while I’m at college is to work on assignments, reports and projects from the beginning of the semester, because usually at that time is less stress and less work to do, so that you can do the assignments calmly 👍🏻. Also, it gives you a chance to review it with the professor(s) and make the required adjustments ✅
3. Combine your notes
Attending classes and taking notes is really useful and important, because from that you can make your own reviewers by taking the lesson objectives and answering it using your notes and examples (this really helps to stick the information in your mind). I personally create a word documents for each subject and type all my notes in that document + the lesson/chapter’s objectives. Believe me this helps me to improve and rise my grades 👍🏻
Note: if you want me to write more about this, please let me know in the comments section ☺️
4. Get an agenda for yourself
If you are a person who forgets a lot you must get an agenda to right your daily objectives/ the things you need/want to do, this helps you to be more organized and productive. Moreover, at the end of the day when you see that you did everything you wanted to do, you will be motivated to do more and use it everyday 🤓
I hope that those tips were useful for you and that you give it a try ✨
