How can I avoid procrastination? I have to study for midterms but, in addition to being a slow worker, I can't stay focused. Please help!

  1. Part of growing up is to learn mental discipline. Some are better at it than others but discipline is something you must practice. Practice and more practice makes a difference. At the beginning it will be difficult but you simply MAKE yourself get back to the task at hand. Taking a break (a short break) every 30 minutes in the beginning may help; that helps me anyway. Here is a site that may offer some other suggestions to get started.

  2. one way you can do this is to reward yourself. Put a list of the things you need to get done on your mirror. Use a marker when it is done. You get to stare at that list several times a day.
