How to organize your homework schedule

Students’ life might seem to be sometimes like an erupting volcano. College assignments can become a time pressing torture if not organized properly. One should follow some simple rules to avoid stress and gain productive habits that will help on your way to academic success.

First of all, one should keep in mind that humans are biological beings. It means that we all require some proper amount of food and sleep per day. It might sound trivial, but it is like it is. To be productive you shouldn’t forget to have some rest. But don’t overdo it.

Develop your daily schedule, where you spend on each meal course not more than 20 minutes and sleep on average for 6-8 hours.

Use homework planners if you have them. Writing with a pencil or pen may seem almost archaic or childish, but the kinesthetic movement of writing down an assignment into one of those little squares will actually help compress that homework in your brain.

Prioritize your homework assignments. All assignments are not created equal. Use a prioritizing system when you sit down at home with your homework. Do first the worst assignment. For example, if you hate writing essays (But, why when all you have to do is follow these essay tips?) and you have a major essay staring you in the face that must be completed before tomorrow.

Generally, you would start with any worksheet you love, but that would be a big mistake. Start with those “1” assignments. Why? Because you hate it. And completing the worst assignment first eases your mind, makes everything appearing after it to be really easy.
