1. Just remember, you only have a few months left!
You have worked long and hard to be where you are today. Don’t let senioritis get to you now! You endured ALL THOSE YEARS of school, you made it this far! So don’t let the last few months of this crucial time in your life go by just because you would rather lay in bed and eat chocolate chips straight out of the bag. Because I have definitely done that. And let me tell you, it’s not as rewarding as one would think.
2. Don’t forget to sleep!
Getting a decent amount of sleep is so important when it comes to your motivation levels. Falling asleep during class and staying up super late will affect your academic performance. I’ve spent my senior year doing homework any chance I get. If I have down time, I study. I do this so I can ensure that I will be able to get in bed at a decent time every night! It might sound awful, but give it a try, it might work for you.
3. Don’t procrastinate. I repeat, DON’T PROCRASTINATE.
Okay but seriously. Don’t. It’s so hard not to. I KNOW. Take it from someone who has been in college for five years already. Procrastinating seems like the easy thing to do, but you will always end up stressing yourself out MORE when you procrastinate verses if you just go ahead and do it. You’re not going to want to do it any more at 2 am than you did at 5 pm.
4. Take care of yourself.
Yes, school and homework are both very important, but so is your physical and mental health. Senioritis happens when students are exhausted, making them lack the amount of energy and involvement that their courses require. Don’t let yourself get to that point! Take vitamins, eat healthy food, drink water, get sleep, and surround yourself with the most awesome group of people that you can find.
To wrap up, senioritis doesn’t have to make an appearance in your life. Just keep reminding yourself that you’ve made it this far, you don’t want to start slacking off now. Stand tall and be proud of what you’ve done with your life so far! Because you are awesome.
