Recommendations For Students On How To Do Homework When You're Sick

You always get sick at the most unexpected or inconvenient time. Learn how to use the best of your stay-at-home time and still keep up with your class.

Sick days – not such a relief anymore.

When you are still at school, days when you stay at home sick were considered blessing. You can stay home and play videogames or watch TV the whole day and your mom would bring you sweets when she comes home from work in the evening. Even if you stayed at home for a few days, you wouldn't miss anything important at school and it would be easy to catch up when you are feeling better. When you grow up and go to college, however, sick days are not such a pleasant experience anymore. Everytime you get sick, you totally have this really important test or a paper due the day after. This guide will teach you how to study hard, even if you are not in your best self.

Assess your abilities realistically.

Even if you have a whole pile of work in front of you, you shall not forget why you are staying at home in the first place. Being sick will make it hard for you to concentrate and remember things, hard to stay up for a long time or complete complex tasks. If you feel significantly worse when doing your homework, you shall stop and rest – your health is much more important than your grade. Set yourself goals, based on how you feel at this time.

5 steps for finishing your homework nice and easy.

  1. Make a to-do list. This way you will see what you need to do and will be able to arrange the tasks accordingly.
  2. Assign complexity points to each task, for example, on a scale from 1 to 5. You will have your up and down moments and will be easible able to decide, which task you can complete.
  3. Don't sleep in late. Try to go to bed and get up early – night sleep is much healthier and you will have more energy for your tasks in the morning that in the second half of the day.
  4. Don't work for long. You still need to rest more than study. Don't study more than 15-20 minutes and make breaks, based on how you feel.
  5. Reward yourself with the next level of the videogame or half an episode. You need to have at least one bright point in your day.
