Now that you or your children are back at school, don’t let their homework get them down before the year has really got going!
It’s hard to stay fully focused whilst doing your work without getting distracted in the process. If you’re having trouble keeping productive, you can learn ways to improve your productivity. When it's homework time, make sure you’re as prepared as you can to stay focused on your work, and that will help you complete your homework efficiently.
Prepare for your Homework
Find a quiet place to work where you’ll be able to study in peace and focus on the homework you need to do. Try and set aside a specific spot to do your homework every night, like a study desk in the bedroom, the living room or if space if an issue, the kitchen table. Alternatively, if space is the home is an issue, there are other options available, like there will be places to study within your education environment such as staying after school or going to the college library, or you could even go to the public library where it will be quiet with plenty of desks to study on.
Eliminate all distractions
Turn off anything that will distract you such as computers, tablets and phones. If you’re trying to focus make sure there is nothing on your study desk, besides the piece of work you are doing and anything that will directly help you. Are you addicted to being on a device like a phone then put them in another room, or give them to your parents to look after until you are having a break. After all you want to focus solely on your work which is spread out on your desk.
Take regular short breaks
Instead of taking one long break which will make you less likely to return to your homework, take a few short breaks in between different assignments. After around 30-60 minutes work have a 5 minute break to maybe stretch or something active which will take you away from your desk.
It’s important to make sure you aren’t sitting at your study desks for hours and hours at a time. If you don’t take breaks, the work can seem endless. Productivity and concentration suffers because you end up wasting time doing other things like doodling or staring into space.
Give yourself a treat when you’re done
Rewarding yourself for the hard work you’ve done each time you’ve finished a task is important. Working towards a treat of some kind helps to motivate you to finish your work quickly, which means you’ll have to concentrate. Set yourself goals to achieve and a give yourself a reward for when you finish it this will improve your productivity.
Make sure your workspace is organised
If you’ve got an untidy working area it is more than likely that you won’t be able to do your work which will decrease your productivity. Having a tidy study desk will put you in a good mind-set to do your work because all your work will be organised. Organising your work into a pile of priority and putting what needs doing first at the top is a good idea because you know where your work is and also what order you need to complete it in.
