The notion of starting cyber school can be exciting. The real challenge is staying motivated to login every day and complete the assignments. Here are some ways that will help you stay engaged.
Remember why you decided to do cyber school. Whenever you lose the focus or you are frustrated with the program, remember why you decided to enter the program. What are the reasons that motivated you in the first place?
Get dressed and go to school. When we lay around in our pajamas all day how does that make you feel? You probably feel like you want to lay around all day. Get yourself dressed and find a spot to go to school every morning. Make sure it is away from distractions like your bed, your couch and your television. When we get dressed we usually feel more inclined to do work.
Allow yourself to take breaks. Sometimes we just need to take a break. We need to give our brains and bodies a break. Get up and stretch. Get yourself a drink a water and take a moment for yourself.
Be realistic. Set daily goals for yourself but be realistic about them. Don't feel you have to get all your work done for the week. Make a schedule for yourself. Get your planner out and write down the work than needs to be completed for that day. Make sure you check them off as you go. By doing this, you will feel like you are accomplishing something.
Reward yourself. After you complete a subject, a project or a test, reqard yourself. Completing a goal is rewarding so take the time to pat yourself on the back. Acknowledge your accomplishments!
