I don't know about uni work, but I know I struggle to stay motivated towards any school work I have. I try and lay out all my work and take it step by step as well as avoid listening to music or watch tv in the background. I usually force myself into an environment where I work, for example go with some friends to the library (or by yourself if your friends easily distract you)

good luck, I hope you manage to stay motivated!

Well this is the thing! I have an office room where I do my work in, I make a big list of everything that I need to get done, with time schedules etc but no matter how organised and efficient I start out like, my brain just goes elsewhere

Hi there Dgriff99

I found if I wrote a list of things I needed to do it motivated me as I ticked them off. It would work with assignments too, so I'd write down "intro, methods, results etc" for my lab reports and as I ticked each section off it kept me going. It REALLY worked with my dissertation!

For me, like nschauhan101 I needed a quiet environment and I found it better if I wrote my work in the early hours, whereas friends on my course could work in a busy noisy common room, this was definitely not for me!

Fi :horse:

if your brain is going elsewhere, maybe something is bugging you?
if not then maybe try a different approach, i'm assuming once you get to uni, the workload increases quite a bit compared to high school, so maybe try a more relaxed approach, focus on the most important work and avoid extra/unnecessary work.
Maybe ask other people who do the same course what their methods are, some may be specific to your course?
