Avoiding anything that has a lot of sugar will help increase your energy and make you less sleepy which in return will increase your productivity. When starting on an assignment try setting a timer to allow yourself a break in between working. A break will allow your brain to rest so it can get ready to work on the next task. Another reason setting a timer can increase your productivity is that it keeps you from getting stuck on one assignment for too long. Another way to keep your productivity high is to keep track of what assignments you have and when they are due. While writing these things down include what other things you need to get done besides schoolwork. Having these deadlines written down will help you stay on top of your work and time manage your week better. Due to Covid-19 keeping students online, morning routines might look a bit different. Getting ready and changing out of your pajamas and into clothes you’d normally wear out and about can develop productivity. Since pajamas are associated with sleep this might cause you to want to be lazy. Getting ready for the day will set your mindset to work mood. Getting a good night’s rest will not only promote productivity but also keep you energized and happy. A good way to get on a consistent sleeping schedule is to set a sleep goal through your health app on your phone. This way your phone keeps track of how many hours of sleep you should be getting and telling you when you don’t get enough. Having a designated place to get your work done can help train your mind to get that work done when you are in that particular space. The best way to stay productive is to do your work at a desk or somewhere other than your bed. Trying to do your work in the bed could make you sleepy since your brain associates that place with sleep.
