I'm a student in Year 10 and I'm reaching the awful mock exam period which is quite daunting for the majority of us. Recently I've just stopped enjoying studying and all I do is go on my social media or watch Youtube videos to pretend that nothing is wrong and to procrastinate. Putting my phone away or blocking the internet is easier said than done. I have never felt more sad in my entire life and I don't know what is wrong with me. All school does to me and make me build up a hate for myself so strong that all I do is cry in the mornings. My mum always feels as if she is to blame.
I just urgently need to get back into studying before things become even more late than they already are. And I need to find a way to do all of my work prior to going on social media/watching TV shows etc.
School and Studying Makes Me Absolutely Hate Myself Watch

I suggest that you do a Google search about causes for procrastination. You'll see that some of the causes can be fear of failure, procrastination, or anxiety. It sounds like the latter may be your case. Have a read and try to implement the solutions that you think will work for you.
My second suggestion is to engage in some self care. What do you do thst makes you feel happy, calm, and centered? Reading, journalism, swimming, sports, a long night's sleep, painting/drawing or something else? Whatever it is, take a day or two off to do it. Refresh yourself, and reconnect with who you are as a person, outside of your role as a student.
Then sit down, and make a plan for tackling the rest of your revision. Don't be yourself up for the time wasted. Accept where you are now and make a new plan, scheduling the most important topics first and the rest after. And when you want to procrastinate, tell yourself that you can do anything for 10 or 15 minutes. Set your timer, and complete one session. That's it. See how you feel from there.
Good luck. . High school isn't easy
