    I have been sitting in front of my screen for four hours and I still cannot even form one simple sentence for my English essay! Does this happen to everyone? What should I do? I really need to finish this essay :/

    It happens to everyone. Why not set a reward for yourself after you have finished or have done a certain number of hours of work?

    If you are in your room, go to the library. Staying at home has too many distractions - food, tea, Netflix...

    I did set a reward for myself. Chocolate biscuits which I ended up eating
    And now I'm just procrastinating.

    Chocolate biscuits are supposed to be for after you have done some work!

    Take a short break (not too long) and then go back to work.

    My advice would be to turn off all your devices that you don’t need such as your phone and move them into another room and solely focus on doing work. That’s usually the only thing that helps me focus although it does take a lot of willpower to do in the first place haha!

    I never even said turn off all devices, I said turn off those you don’t need (there’s a difference.) So tone down the sarcasm for a second and read before you respond.

    I literally edited it because I put an x on the end instead of an exclamation mark, and did that before you starting being clever with me. But you know, whatever makes you happy
