I know it can be hard to actually start writing your assignment or doing anything work related, since you just want to lay down in your bed with your laptop and watch Netflix all day right? I feel you. Really. I want to do that too, but there is just some things that just has to get done before you can even sit down and relax. In this blog post I am going to give you some tips that will help you to get work done.
Break you tasks into small pieces
This will make your tasks more clear and manageable than big tasks. It will be easier to do since it’s just small tasks you have to do until you are done. It can be anything as small as opening a new document to write in and then writing a title and so on. It does not have to be anything big. This is just something to get you started.
Have great supplies
Who wants to take notes if your paper is not that great so you can’t see what you are writing? Nobody wants that. I normally use Google docs to take notes since that’s the fastest way to take notes when you are in class. But when I write in hand I like to write on Whitelines, those notebooks are so great and you can easily read what you have written. As for highlighters I love to use Mildliners. They are so pretty and so easy to use. And it’s also double-sided, so if you just want to use it like a marker you can do that or you can use the other tip as a highlighter. Isn’t that awesome?

Find your workplace
It can be really nice to work in your bed in your bedroom since it’s really comfortable. But is it actually going to make you work? Hmm…I don’t think so. Your bed is where you relax and sleep in so you shouldn’t do your work on your bed as well. Find another room in your home, maybe the kitchen? Living room? If there is too much noise or if you are very unproductive at home, then try to go out to a coffee house or to a library.
Get dressed properly
This is actually a pretty good one. It is very comfortable to work in your pajamas but it can make you lazy as well since you just want to lay in bed. Try to put on some different clothes that will make you feel comfortable and make you want to do some work at the same time.
Set the mood by using music
Music can be helpful to study or get some work done for some people. I am not saying that you should play your favorite songs and have a dance party, but try out listening to instrumental music. That way you will concentrate more since there is no one singing and it’s just instruments that are playing. I really like to listen to instrumental music since it keeps me focused, and I am sure it will help you to stay focused too.
Start with your favourite task
This is an important one. Always do your favorite tasks first. When you do things you like the brain releases dopamine which makes you happy and motivates you to do more. That will make it easier continuing doing your work since you’ll have fewer tasks.
I hope that these tips will help you to get your work done. What kind of tips and tricks do you have to get your work done? Write it down in the comments and I would love to try them out!
