How to break the laziness cycle

   Tired of dragging yourself Sunday night to your desk to try and finish the homework that you can? Yeah, so was I. Trying to understand physics or biology at 9 pm. is not a pleasant sensation. Many teachers may tell you “well you had Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to study”. Well, when you are a teenager it is a completely different story. When Friday afternoon comes around, the last thing you want to do is open your backpack to do homework. You are more worried about weekend plans and where the party will be, and before you know it, Friday is gone. Then comes Saturday. Saturday is all about hanging out with friends or doing nothing. Anyways, you think of it as a mini summer vacation, telling yourself that Sunday will be the day you’ll do all your homework. However, when Sunday comes around, you try to convince yourself that the homework is so not difficult or little that you can easily start at 7 pm. and finish it at a reasonable hour. Well, let me tell you that the majority of the time it takes longer than you think to write an essay or study for a quiz. Which is why the first thing to do is to try to understand the type of person you are. If you think you can sit for 3 complete hours (exaggerating) and finish all your assignments, then wake up early, either Saturday or Sunday and finish your assignments once and for all. This way you can dedicate more time to the activities you like to perform. However, if you are the type of person who is constantly getting distracted and cannot stay seated for more than forty minutes straight, then maybe the best thing for you is to distribute your assignment throughout the weekend. Depending on the amount of homework you have, you can focus on getting done two or three assignments per day, maybe two in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Either way, you will avoid facing all the things you have to do Sunday night. Don’t think about it. Just do it.
