Everyone will feel some form of stress at least once in their lives. But some experience stress more than others for many reasons. One leading reason for stress is procrastination. Many of us procrastinate on things daily, especially on homework.
If you don’t know what “procrastination” or “to procrastinate” is, to procrastinate means to hold something off until the last minute. For example, we all have had that project that we didn’t start until the weekend or day before it was due. We procrastinated..
Procrastination and stress go together. Stress comes with not being prepared, which causes worry and anxiety.
With stress and procrastination comes loss of time. Time is commonly lost on other homework assignments or sleep. We all procrastinate and feel stress, but preventing both should be the ultimate goal.
- How To Avoid Stress and Procrastination
Though stress and procrastinate happen, there are ways we can avoid it, or find ways to lessen its occurrence. Here are my tips to avoid stress and procrastination:
Tip 1: Stay on top of things! Do assignments as soon as possible so you don’t have to worry about them later. It saves you so much time and energy.
Tip 2: If it’s a big project, do a little bit of it each day. For example, if the project includes multiple steps, like for example, a project that requires an essay, a drawing, a powerpoint and a giant poster, and it’s due in a week, then do the essay on the day it was assigned when you get home, the drawing the next day, the powerpoint the day after, then the poster the day after that and then you bring it all together. So, in five days, you finished the project with two days to spare. It’s that simple.
Tip 3: Do it in class whenever possible. If you have time in a class, then do it (as long as the teacher says it’s okay to do so). It will save you time later in the day.
