Do you guys ever procrastinate whilst revising? I tend to but usually I have music on as it helps Me, and I need to use a device or the internet for the revisions. Do you guys? And do you have any tips?

I think almost everyone procrastinates while revising. Browsing TSR doesn't really help either :lol:

I do it all the time. But I realise that it’s not good for me and I need to work hard so I try my best to ignore procrastinating and just get it done

Yes but I don’t procrastinate in the long term - like I’ll start essays and work way before it’s due so I give myself time to procrastinate in the short term along the way if that makes sense? Saves me rushing all my work at the last minute

Yep
I don't listen to music unless its homework and even then, its usually lofi or study beats because music doesn't help you memorise stuff (unless its like classical music or something)
Honestly, just don't go on TSR as I can easily waste hours on this site without even knowing:p:D.
Usually its just actually starting revision, which is hard for me. Once I have started the rest is a breeze; I get fully focused into it and go crazy for that 1 hour revision seshh

if you're gonna listen to music then you should put the volume to 50% and listen to classical music or to Borrtex - I Will Never Give Up (Official Audio) on repeat its gives me motivation to carry on, just make sure the music is playing in the background lightly and you're not getting distracted. I think the best way to lessen the procrastination is to have rivalry against people so you can always think that they are working harder than you whenever you're procrastinating. Just a way that worked for me over the last years.
