How to get motivated to do homework!

Hey Guys! 

So I got a request to do a "How to get motivated to do your homework" video, and I sat down to film it, and then I thought to myself "Why not do this as a blog post?" So here I am! 

Here are my top 3 tips to do getting your homework done! 

1) Make a do to list! I cannot tell you how much this has helped me get my homework done! You will feel so accomplished when you have finished all of your tasks for the day/night! 
Here's an example of what my to do list might look like: 

  • Drink a glass of water
  • Homework
  • Shower
  • Study
  • Paint Nails
  • Read 3 chapters in "The Hunger Games" 
I would start of my list with something that you have already accomplished, so that way you already feel like you are getting something done. You could put something like "eat a bannana" or "walk dog." It doesnt have to be to extravagent or difficult, just something that is easy to get done quickly. 

2) Say that your favorite TV show is on that night, but you have so much homework to do, but you are DYING to watch the show. YOU TOTALLY CAN! 
What I do when there's a show on that I want to watch or a movie that is on or something like that, I watch the TV show, and then when the commercials come on, I pause my TV show, and then I do an assignment. I wont let myself un - pause it if I havent finished. If its a really long assignmet, I will do half of it and then the other half the next time the commercials come on. Does that make sense?

3) Take small phone breaks! Allow yourself to do an hour's worth of homework, and then let yourself have your phone for 15 mintues. Set a timer, and then continue doing your work! That way you have a "reward" or a "prize" if you will for doing your homework for an hour! 

Hope that these tips help! 

Happy Homework!
