Can you give me some advice on how to keep motivated on school work? I've been in this slump for over a month where I can't even bring myself to do any homework or study. It's gets really overwhelming when the work begins to pile up and I've even skipped class sometimes because I don't want to face the teacher for not completing assignments. I waste so much time just laying around in bed when I could be doing something productive...I don't know please help me..
the situation you described is actually me right now, i’m not kidding. my anxiety is interfering with my productivity and sometimes i stay home from school. getting work done is hard especially when it’s given all at once or if it’s presented with lots of pressure surrounding it. procrastination becomes your worst enemy. even when school gets tough, i still find ways to stay motivated. i don’t know if this will help, but it’s kept me quite motivated over the years. first, think about what you want most in life, a goal you want to accomplish and what makes you happy. keep that image with you at all times. when you’re feeling down at school or if you’re having trouble getting work done, think about that goal. the goal i made for myself was finally moving out of the u.s. and living in iceland by myself alone in comfort. i always think about that future i wish for and it always fills me with hope and motivation. the only reason i work hard in school is because i get closer and closer to that goal every day. work hard so you can get closer and closer to your goal. another key is organization. split your assignments by days, so you won’t have to do it all at once. take it step by step so you won’t get stressed. this has also worked for me and has made work easier to accomplish. i don’t know if this helped, but i hope you find that passion that pushes you forward and i wish you the best. if you have any other questions or concerns you can always talk to me :)
