You’ve probably already noticed that we’ve been publishing a lot of articles lately about getting ready for school. By the end of next week nearly every school in the country will be back in session. For college students who have just left home for the first time it can be a stressful and exciting time. Now is the time to put good habits into place so you don’t come up short at the end of the term!
In an interview with About.com’s ADHD blogger, Keath Low, Edge Foundation’s Executive Director, Sarah Wright, offers seven strategies to help any college student keep on track to achieving their goals.
1. Start the day on time.
2. Work with the urge to procrastinate
3. Study smarter, not harder
4. Schedule your study time – treat it like it’s a paid job
5. Plan your time (assess & prioritize) to keep track
6. Stick to your plan
7. Find an ADHD coach
