7 Useful Suggestions On How To Focus On Homework After A Breakup

The thing about schools, is that it keeps going, day in and day out, regardless of what else is going on in your life. You’re still expected to show up, and you’re still expected to get your homework done, even when you’re sick, injured, or having problems with family, friends, or relationships. So, it’s almost inevitable that sometime during your school career you’ll have to deal with a breakup, and still have to get your homework done, even if you’re feeling sad or angry.

Here are 7 useful suggestions on how to focus on homework after a breakup:

  1. See it as an opportunity to do you
  2. The time after a breakup can actually be incredibly productive in terms of focusing on yourself and making positive changes in your life. Regardless of the reason for the breakup, many of us are left wanting to grow into better people or make our life be more like what we want it to be after the breakup. So, focusing on your homework can be a great way to move forward. Why do we do homework? To learn and grow, to become a more interesting and intelligent person, and to open up opportunities for ourselves in the future, whether it is with a job or college. So the best way to move on from a breakup is to turn to the future.

  3. Block out distractions
  4. Block out anything that distracts you while you’re working on assignments, whether it is music, TV, or the internet. This is a good rule of thumb for keeping focused when doing school work in general.

  5. Turn off your phone
  6. Put it on silence, put it in the other room, or turn it off. There’s nothing that kills a productive streak like texts and notifications.

  7. Shut off your Wifi
  8. If you’re not using it for the assignment, turn the Wifi off on your computer so you won’t be tempted to end up on social media.

  9. Balance it with exercise
  10. Another great strategy is to balance studying with exercise, to get out your pent up energy or frustration. Try going for a run before doing your homework.

  11. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep and eating right
  12. It’s hard to focus on anything if you’re not sleeping well and eating right. So make an extra effort to take care of your body after a relationship

  13. Don’t be afraid to ask for help
  14. If you’re really struggling, don’t be afraid to go to your teacher or guidance councilor for help.
