    It's something that is literally ruining my life. My phone is a huge distraction. Take that away from me, I'll just start sketching drawings with a pencil on the homework/ textbook/ classwork I'm supposed to be doing.

    It wasn't that bad a few years ago, but now I'm in Year 12, and I need to get my game up a little. I cannot afford to fail this year, nor next year.

    Some advice on how to get rid of this would be seriously great right now.

    Try using the Pomodoro method and an app called Forest where you set a timer and then work for that amount of time. During that time a tree grows but if you exit the app before the timer has ended the tree dies. It really motivates me. I use it when doing homework, revising or in my 'free' periods at school. So useful. Check it out, may help you. It is 1.99 on the App Store but it is worth it- at least I think so.

    What i found that works for me is every time I procrastinate is that I do 2 push ups and go have a bath.
    The reason I do that is that I've learnt that exercising is good for the brain and that there are hormones released that help the brain grow. You might ask then why just 2? Because doing 2 push ups is easy to do and your more willing to do it than doing 15 push ups.
    Getting a bath is good because it helps your mind be creative.

    Also you can listen to classical music while doing your work, or listen to the Spotify Deep Focus playlist. 9 hours of music helping you focus!

    This video sums me up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arj7oStGLkU
    Nothing I can do about it, I've tried, at GCSE and AS now I'm in A2 year and things are looking exactly the same.
    Learn to deal with it, as long as you put in the work just before a deadline/exam


    Probably not the best advice

    hi, Im a student who is doing a research project.

    Can you fill out my survey for me. It's on stress, personality and procrastination. It's completely anonymous and it will take around 5 minutes to complete. Here is the link.

    You cannot get rid of it, but you can control it.

    Try listening to music or have a video playing in the background which doesn't distract you per se but prevents you from looking at your phone.

    - download the cold turkey add-on for chrome.

    -Turn your phone off put it somewhere thats effort to get.

    -Study in bursts of 25 mins, take 5 min breaks. These breaks shouldn't be youtube or whatever, but stuff like grabbing a snack, lying down listening to music or just pacing in your room thinking (I do this one alot).

    you can study virtually all day with these 2 tips and after a few weeks it just becomes a habit to not procastinate.
