Hey guys. How do you overcome procrastination? Mainly for studying but also just in general as well - from the simple things like forcing yourself to get out of bed or going out for some fresh air. Does anyone else struggle with not only getting started on studying, but basic things like that too?

Hi :hello:

Here is something I found useful to remember throughout my degree, to help me get on with my work.

Study SMART Not Long: It much easier to implement a regular and successful study schedule if you are studying SMART.
o Set yourself goals.
o Make study techniques that promote greater results.
o Ask for help.
o Reward yourself for progress.
o Take a Break.

S: Set yourself goals for study. For example, make up an exam/essay question and work towards answering it.
M: Remember VARK. Are you a Visual learner, Audio learner, Reading learner or Kinetic learner. Use study techniques that will promote the best learning for yourself.
A: If you are struggling with anything ask your teacher for help. Their job is to help you with your studies. Alternatively, use study guides or the internet to help breakdown tough subjects.
R: When you hit your goals, complete work and meet important deadlines reward yourself with treats. For example, make watching an episode of your favourite show your reward for completing tasks.
T: When you’ve finished studying take breaks. Go for a walk, hang with friends or get a cup of tea and watch TV. It’s important not to overdo revising.

I hope this helps! If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

When I procrastinate its typically because I have no idea where to start the task at hand: breaking it down into clear concise steps may help you get started!
