    I notice lately that I'm becoming increasingly neglectful of my school work. I just finished an assignment and I have a stats test tomorrow but I don't feel motivated to study for it even though I know I should. Any tips to be motivated to study and keep focus?

    I find telling people what study I need to do helps, or making lists of what I want to get done in a day.

    if I tell someone, they'll ask me how it's going like an hour later and I don't want to embarrass myself by saying I haven't started, and if I make a list I want to get it finished.

    Another thing I occasionally use is to set a 20 minute timer and revise or do homework for 20 minutes straight uninterrupted, then I get a break. Stuff gets done faster because it feels like less time so I'm more committed to focusing for the full 20 rather than just sitting in front of my work not doing it.

    hope some of that helps xxx
