Help with gaming procrastination

GCSE's are right around the corner and I constantly find myself playing games. I really need help on how to stop or what I should

What will happen if you continue to play games constantly? Will you get GCSE grades that will good enough for whatever you want to do next (e.g. sixth form / college)? If you plan to go to uni, will they be good enough to meet the GCSE entry requirements? Will a potential employer be happy with those grades? If the answer to each of those questions is "Yes", then carry on playing games constantly.

Sometimes the first step is the most difficult one. You can watch tutorial videos to your lessons to use the time with sense before you begin with revision and learning. And after you finished the procedure, you can reward yurself with playing games.

By the by I move the thread to GCSEs forum.

I had (and sometimes still have) the same problem. Used to play Overwatch 24/7 and I felt so bad after. I know it's difficult but you should overcome it for yourself. Set specific goals, surround yourself with people that share the same goals, study with them. I think this will motivate you and make you feel more responsible. Once I joined a zoom meeting with students I didn't know, everyone was quiet and studying and we had cameras on. As I saw others working hard I also felt like I had to study. So yeah try out new methods. this one worked for me. Remember to take care of your mental and physical health. Work out and eat healthy! Here are some links with tips that you can read if you'd like. GOOD LUCK!
