Always think positive

The problem is, in your perception, you are too engulfed with the idea that you do not have enough time for yourself or to finish a certain project. You should stop complaining and instead, put yourself into action to start whatever it is that you need to do with your remaining time for the rest of the day.


Always put yourself into action

Rather than spending half an hour procrastinating and doing nothing, you should sit down at your desk, turn on your computer and start doing whatever it is that you needed to do. You might have enough time to bake some goodies if you have finished your work early.


Ignore distractions                                                                 

When you are catching up with a certain deadline, the best way to deal with it is to ignore all distractions that might come on your way. Avoid logging into your Facebook, checking your email and randomly checking the photos from your trip last week. Focus on your work, and things that are not related to what you are going to do must be kept out of your sight.


Stop procrastinating

If ever you found yourself procrastinating again, you should ask yourself why you are even doing this. Are you not confident with your skills to finish the task? Do you find it too difficult? Perhaps it’s too easy that you don’t want to do it anymore. Are you tired and you want to catch some sleep? Narrow down your reasons on why you are procrastinating and you will most likely find some ways to do something about it to stop doing so.

Set a fixed time to finish all your work

Setting a deadline will pressure you into finishing the work that has to be done. Set up a deadline for a certain work that you need to finish. If you haven’t finished it on time, it’s okay, but you need to stop. Take some time to have some rest, sleep, eat and resume your work when you are feeling good and looking good.


Limit social media

In case your work involves social media, limit the time that you visit social networking sites because it can tempt you into logging in to your Facebook account, checking your emails or other matters that will just distract you.


Create a time audit

You should try creating a time audit for about a week or so. From then on, you can observe where most of your time is spent. You could also point out some vital points on where you spend your time in an ordinary day.

 

Limit the things that waste your time

Now that you have created your time audit, you are most likely to point out things that are just wasting your time. Limit these things to use your time wisely and increase your productivity both at school and at home. The best way to do it is to avoid distractions as much as possible.
