Procrastinate With Purpose

Let’s be real. Although you should be studying right now, you are probably finding ways to avoid it. Here are some ways you could be productive while taking a break from school work.

  1. Read this blog post- Gotcha! The best way to procrastinate is to read Omega Notes blog posts…right?

  2. Clean your entire dorm room/apartment. I have found that the only time I really clean, is when I procrastinate studying. Cleaning for three hours with my favorite music on sounds a whole lot more appealing than reading a textbook.

  3. Go to the gym. This is when the procrastination gets REAL. Instead of sitting on the couch thinking about how much you don’t want to study, go run on the treadmill and think about how much you don’t want to study.

  4. Scroll through Pinterest to find motivation. I heard that Omega Notes has a great feed for motivation seekers…

  5. Call your mom, she misses you. But, don’t tell her you’re only calling because it’s better than studying for Econ.

  6. Cook a four course meal. Perhaps, a nice Italian meal: Bread and oil, minestrone soup, lasagna, and for dessert, Tiramisu.

  7. Binge watch a show from the list on our last blog post. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Don’t just sit there and mope! Do something worthwhile if you don’t feel like studying just yet.
