Last week we discussed have many different goals for the school year. Among those goals was getting your homework done. That’s an awesome goal to have but let’s go into a little more detail on that goal.
You should have a specific plan as to when you do your homework. Not everyone is the same or has the same schedule or here is a little of times that might work for you.
- Right after school when you first get home
- After you have a snack when you get home
- 30-60 minutes after school to relax a bit and recharge your batteries and become more mentally alert again
- Figure out how long you can focus on your homework at a time and take mini breaks as needed
Also it is important to have a specific spot that allows you to get your homework done. A place that offers little to no distraction. This allows for a routine. The sooner you get your homework done and correctly the sooner you can enjoy your free time and to relax your brain. Too much thinking as well as too much exercise and activity can be bad for you. Gotta find a balance.
