Coping With An Increased Workload
School can get super stressful and overwhelming if you don’t know the best way to manage the amount of work you have to do. In fact, a lot of the time when we have too much work, we stress so much about it that we end up not doing it at all, which is pretty counter-productive. To help tackle that increasing workload, we’ve put together some tips for you.
Get a planner/create a timetable
Note down all the different things you need to do and when you want to get them done by. You don’t need to be over-specific and plan each hour, and you don’t want to be unrealistic and give yourself an impossible amount of work to do each day. People who do this end up giving up on their timetable because they fall behind early on. Your timetable should be a gentle reminder of what you should be doing and when. I’d recommend a weekly timetable where you write what you want to achieve each day, but you get to organise the time within each day however you want and base it on how you feel. Don’t fancy starting with Maths? Cool, we’ll start with some Geography instead.
Prioritising your work is about being wise and doing the most important or urgent things first to get them out the way. There’s a really cool table that you can draw every day/week when planning what needs to be done.
