    i’m finding it hard to be productive at the moment.. i’m currently in y11 (GCSE year) and i’m on half term. i’ve done no revision because i’m genuinely so exhausted from school, which means i’ve basically just been sleeping and feeling sorry for myself. today, i made a to do list and i’ve just been staring at it on my desk.. i just can’t bring myself to be productive and do something.. like??? i’m worried that i’m gonna fail and the fact i’m doing nothing about it is making me feel worse

    Hmmm, ok - try this: Visualize scrubbing the floors in men's rooms for the rest of your life, in order to get money to eat, because you failed to acquire a salable degree/profession, that would earn you enough dosh so that you could afford to eat and have a place to live. Does that help???? Cheers.

    Honestly. This was me. I have depression and panic disorder which is a form of anxiety mixed with a nice dose of OCD. It really doesn't go well together and I end up in bed stressing out about the fact that I'm stressed as well. It really gets me down sometimes. But you've got to try and get past it. I'm in year 12 now and I do have a few regrets but it's motivated me to do more this year. I think you've got to make sure you're not over ambitious with the targets that you set yourself and ensure that you aren't spending your time making to do lists rather than completing them and getting under the illusion that you're being productive because in reality, all you're doing is setting yourself up to be productive. I'd say set up a studyblr. Honestly, it's such a nice community to be in, you see advice posts, study tips, other people's work, and you share your own too. I've joined this community this week and it's honestly been such a good decision. I can already feel myself wanting to do more. It also means that you can keep a record on how much you've done as well. If you need a pal or whatever or help getting set up or any other advice, let me know and I'll do my best. Good luck in your GCSE's!
