Before you say “routines are boring” establishing a routine is of much importance when getting used to new schedules and is the key to prioritizing! Especially if you’re taking online classes, staying motivated can be challenging which is why a routine can help you out.
Get a planner.

Create to-do lists.
Feel accomplished and on top of everything when creating lists of daily/weekly goals and tasks you need to achieve. Remember, jotting down anything increases the chances of you remembering and there’s something about marking off each task that gives you much satisfaction.
- Be patient
Keep in mind, we’re all learning as we go. It’s important to be as patient as possible with others and with yourself, including teachers, when figuring out the best strategies for lecture. What works for some may not work for all, which is where a helping hand can be of great use. Considering most classes are digital, try your best and don’t be too harsh on yourself.
