    try putting the list into smaller lists of priority.

    You could be overwhelmed by the list. so try making it smaller.

    It may sound silly, but you could put a video from YouTube on of motivational music to get up going. I've seen some housework motivational videos on there.

    that may be your problem.

    think of it this way. while you haven't started any they won't get done.

    I suggest making your separate lists, and start with the most urgent and work down the list. once one list is complete use that as motivation to complete another.

    the other, is not helpful today, by not leaving everything to the last minute.
    if you struggle to plan, look into a bullet journal. it could help.

    I'd have one master list, which would include deadlines.
    and then separate lists per assignment.

    I've been looking at ways of keeping on top of assignments for when I start in October.
    if you go on Pinterest, people have printouts which can help you get organised.

    try to keep the steps manageable. maybe to a time scale. like list by how long it'll take. maybe keep chunks to 30-45 mins and take a short break.

    if all your assignments are due today, then realistically they won't be done.
    decide which you can get an extension on, ask for the extension and then work on ones you won't.

    most suggestions will help plan better so you don't end up where you have too much to do and not enough time.

    yes there is.

    Once you look at a pin, it'll give you other similar pins so you can find exactly what you need.

    You can also search for university printable.
    I can't remember what keywords I used, so have you the link to get you started.

    most of the tips are for getting organised to help prevent the situation you are in.

    I hope you can find something that will help.

    I'm not looking forward to the workload, even though I'm doing it part time through the open university. I know that I have some sort of assessment (TMAs and CMAs) every few weeks, so must get on top straight away.
