How to Make It Through the Last Six Weeks

How to Make It Through the Last Six Weeks

Natalie Hornbaker, Staff Writer

Right now in the school year we students are drained both physically and emotionally. We have zero motivation to do anything at all, no matter how simple it may be. The work seems endless and waking up for 8:30 a.m. classes somehow gets harder and harder with every passing day. On a positive note, there is less than a month of school left until summer, but to still be alive by then you should consider doing the following:

  1. Make a playlist to jam to: Put all of your favorite songs in a playlist and listen to it when you have no motivation to do anything.
  2. Use a planner: Even if it is just for the last six weeks you need to stay organized. By knowing what you need to get done, stress will be reduced.
  3. Sleep: Forget sleeping in classes, go to bed earlier. It is easier said than done, but falling asleep during class makes you more unmotivated. Go home and nap.
  4. Have funInstead of laying in bed thinking of everything you have to do and how stressed you are, go out and have fun. Yes, you have a lot going on. We all do. But save Friday or Saturday night to hit the town with some friends, or have a movie night.
