Take a Break!

 

When you’re doing schoolwork in a non-traditional setting, like from your home, it can be easy to get lost in assignments and studying and get hyper focused on completing your tasks so you can be done for the day.

Whether you’re struggling to stay focused or struggling to pull yourself away from your work, it is good to power through sometimes, especially when you’re on a roll, but it’s also important to take breaks regularly to help with stress management and schoolwork productivity.
