Dealing with assignment after assignment when all you want to do is graduate is exhausting.
It is normal for seniors to feel fatigue from their countless number of deadlines and responsibilities.
But if you are trying to keep yourself afloat then here are five ways to beat senioritis and finish the semester strong.
Take care of yourself and keep yourself busy by participating in healthy activities like yoga, walking and going to bed early.
Eating junk food and staying up until 4 a.m. is not going to help you stay focused. Implement a bed time and add healthy and organic foods to your diet.
Talk to your professors
If you are struggling in class, email your professor and be honest as to why you have not finished assignments or do not understand the course material.
Do not hesitate to reach out and ask for help.
This one is easier said than done, but push yourself to use your agenda and keep up to date with any upcoming deadlines and work.
Try to start assignments earlier so you can avoid the extra workload and stress from starting an assignment two hours before the deadline.
Focus on your goals
What do you want to do after graduation? Think of all the things you want to accomplish after getting your diploma. It will not happen if you end up failing a class or two.
Write down your goals and post them on your bulletin board or wall to remind yourself why you are getting this degree.
Do not push yourself
Try to avoid the “be positive, no worries” mindset. It tends to be toxic and does more harm than good.
Do what you can to graduate and be proud of yourself for getting this far.
You can improve your situation but do not take it overboard and cause yourself a meltdown. Work your way up and take it one step at a time.
