Break larger tasks into smaller ones
When you achieve those goals, celebrate! Reward yourself with things like a video-chat with a friend, go for a walk, or give yourself a treat.
Prioritize your work using the Canvas Calendar.
Consider disabling your notifications on your phone or computer while you are in your study time.
This will keep distractions to a minimum.
Have a dedicated place to work
Try to find good lighting, a quiet space, and the best internet connection you can.
Read the syllabus, read the course announcements, read your email. Stay informed and connected!
Take care of you!
Try these stress management techniques or use whatever stress reduction methods that works for you. Workout, try meditation, or relaxation techniques.
And remember, hitting a bump is OK, that is how you learn and grown strong.
