As I’ve probably mentioned before, I’m a freshman in college this year, and it’s right about now, the start of my third week at school, that I’m starting to feel sort of a slump in my attention to academics. Yes, I know, you’re probably thinking, “It’s only the third week! How could she be distracted from her studies already?!”

Well, somehow, this is the case, and thus I thought I would remind all high schoolers who may be feeling the same way to remember to concentrate on your studies! Here are five tips to keep you awake and alert:

1. Exercise — while you’re working on expanding your mind, don’t neglect your body.

2. Eat right and drink a lot of water — apparently you get really dehydrated by studying, so make sure to replenish those vital nutrients!

3. Start with the difficult material first — because then you’re only have the fun stuff to work on when it’s late at night and you most want to call it quits.

4. Don’t procrastinate! — leaving work for the last minute is a recipe for academic disaster… and no, that doesn’t taste good! (I need to listen to my own advice on this one by the way… I’m definitely writing this blog post at the expense of starting a paper that’s due tomorrow…)

5. Keep yourself motivated! — remember, studying is really important and ultimately learning is fun, right? Whenever you feel yourself getting frustrated or depressed, just remind yourself of your goals. What do you want to achieve? What’s after high school for you? After college? Remember that what you do now often determines what you will do in the future. Want a great future? Well then, make today the best it can be!
