Assessment Week, we’re ready for you! (📸 + ✍️ by @dadolinodadalin). “It’s time to get back to work, because the end of semester 2 is nearly here! 🗓#Assessments can sometimes give us a really hard time, so I’ve decided to share with you 3 #tips that work best for me 📚
1. TREAT YOURSELF 🍬
Let’s say I have to write an essay with a length of 1000 words. I’ll buy myself 5 of my favourite treats (I usually go for the more expensive ones that I don’t have that often), place them all next to my laptop so I can clearly see them, and reward myself with one treat for every 200 words. You have to give this a try, because trust me, it really works!
2. ASK A FRIEND👨💻
Obviously this depends on what kind of assignment you’re currently working on, but I would NEVER write my essays alone. The thing is that if you work with a group of friends, you can give each other #feedback. You can also keep each other #motivated, so I personally get way more work done when I’m with someone rather than if I am by myself. This is honestly the most effective process of work for me.
3. BREATHE 💆♀️
This one sounds pretty obvious, right? Take breaks during your study session, stay hydrated, eat well, #BREATHE. Writing assignments can be really stressful, but don’t let it affect your mental health. If you feel like you can’t write anymore, don’t push yourself to. Obviously if you’re working on it the night before, you have to push yourself, but either way, you have to take short breaks. Remember that diamonds are made under pressure! If you have time, go for a short walk, watch an episode of your favourite show on #Netflix, or just relax and breathe for a few seconds. You will get way better results this way rather than just pushing yourself to hit the word count.”
