Online courses are more and more time-consuming, as besides the classes we receive a lot of homework. If you find yourself in a position where you can not finish your assignments or you can not stand hearing the word assignment anymore, please continue reading this article. Keep in mind:
You don’t have to do all the assignments
Some professors or teachers don’t say this out loud, but try to keep in mind that you don’t have to do all the tasks. When you feel overwhelmed, it is okay to delay your assignment to the next week. The principal idea of those assignments is to help the new information fix, but you can find better ways of doing so, right?
You are human
It is okay to get tired. Seldom do we need a day off, even if that day is in the middle of the week? If you can, please take that day off, you need it. It is okay to be in a position where you can’t give 100%. You are human. A break at its own time makes a difference in your mental health and, without it, you won’t be very effective. So, take that break!
You do your best, and that is just enough
Some days, your best may be all you have to do. When there are a lot of things waiting to be done, you don’t have to make them perfectly. The key to doing a lot of things in a short time is to manage your time efficiently. Stop thinking an essay could be written differently, of that assignment could have more pages. Don’t put more pressure on yourself, than it is already!
Being a student is not all about homework and classes
Again, you are human! You may fall in love, you may feel heartbroken, you have feelings that don’t give a damn about your English assignment! Allow yourself to feel like a human being and to experience life at its fullest. College is just a step in your carrier and its time span matches your transition to your adult life. Allow yourself to develop personally, not only professionally.
You are more than your assignments, your marks, and your professional life. Don’t forget that the professors and teachers are human beings too, and they can understand those moments when you solely can’t focus on your responsibilities. Just breathe, this is your daily assignment, and sometimes it is okay to be the only one.
