How to Avoid Homework Stress

Homework can be stressful. And some teachers like to dish out a lot. It can be especially tough if you participate in extracurricular activities like dance, sports or volunteer work. Finding time for homework can add unnecessary stress to your life. But avoiding homework stress is a lot simpler than you’d think.

Stay Organized

A cluttered work space makes for a cluttered mind. Reorganize your desk and binder so it’s neat and tidy. Make sure your papers are hole-punched and organized with dividers. And get rid of everything you don’t need. You’ll find that being organized is the first step to relieving your stress.

Work During Class

It’s so easy to use extra class time to chat with your friends. But if you know you have plans after school, you should use your time wisely. Start your homework in class. You could lighten your work load, or maybe even eliminate it!

Start Projects Early

When your teacher assigns you a project that’s due in a few weeks, it’s easy to shrug it off at first. But leaving it until the last minute will put you in a stressful spot. If you begin on the day it’s assigned, you could do little pieces each day until it’s done. That would save you from having to rush it the night before it’s due. And you may just get a better mark too!

Ask for Help

Sometimes homework stress has nothing to do with a time crunch; it might just be that you don’t understand it. Use your class time to talk with your teacher and have them explain it again. Or sit down with your parents and have them work out the problems with you. And if neither of those options help, use the buddy system and work with a friend in class. After all, two heads are better than one!

When Do You Do Your Homework?

  • As soon as I get home from school.
  • Usually after supper.
  • In the morning, right before class starts.
  • Homework? I've never done it.
