Homework is a way of life for a student or academician; it could be both imposed on and self-assigned, either way completing homework is not always easy and painless. If the work is given in exorbitant numbers or the content is simply challenging then the objectives of homework become inimical to students’ effort to achieve good grades. But there is no way we can deny the importance and significance of homework; it is not always about the grades but also self-satisfaction that a nicely done homework brings. So, whether you like it or don’t, here are some tips that will make your odyssey as comfortable as you may have desired in an ideal world:
An exclusive place for homework in your room is ideal to set the mood on, a caddy or a holder for pencils, pen, notebooks, markers, books, etc. can help you concentrate on or take up one challenge at a time.
Eliminate as much as you can from the background, it includes television, radio, smart phones, laptops, tablets and especially Netflix. Removing things that create distractions is a smarter step towards managing time efficiently during your homework.
In order to have a coherent and systematic approach to your work, make a list of to-do things prior to everything, for example, point number 1- write summary of chapter 6, point number2- 25 trigonometry problems etc.
This step is often misunderstood as most of the students simply copy from each other, working things out with a study partner is collectively taking down a problem or solving things together, with equal amount of contribution.
Taking breaks means renewing and refreshing oneself from working for hours on one thing. During this brief period avoid taking up any other task but simply eat, listen to music or give a call to your buddy, make sure to keep it terse.
With every completion reward yourself in some way or the other. You can remain happy by screaming ‘Eureka’ out loud, or treat yourself with candies or a twenty-minute episode from your favorite series.
Multitasking is not only bad for your stress level but also for your efficacy in doing homework.
Homework is omnipresent, it will strike you without any warning but you can strike back at it by keeping these aforesaid steps accessible.
