We all do it more or less. Share your thoughts on it and how you get over it.

I at least try to get a little bit of work done every day, so that when the time comes to start cramming everything at least it won't be so bad hahaha.

Procrastination is definitely the worst enemy of all students lol. I would suggest learning to manage your time. Make sure to make a schedule and split up your work efficiently. Make sure to follow that schedule well.

Oh also I usually make a schedule on my phone with google calendar. So I can see what I need to do that day and it gives me reminder.

I try doing the 10 minute routine. Don't like doing it? Do it for just 10 minutes. Its short enough to do quicklly and long enough to get something done.

I am still finding a way to deal with procrastination... it's always been a big problem for me.

I find that I can't focus on one thing if I don't have something going on in the background. I have to have music or tv playing in order to think better.

I like to listen to a podcast while working. Not too distracting and just enough to make work not super boring.

How do you focus on both the podcast and the work though?

I make a list and use an app that gives me a set amount of time that I should be studying. It puts the pressure on (I guess?) and helps me focus if I know there is only a specifc amount of crunch time before my next break.
