What is the best way to manage my time in high school and studying tips I sometimes have a hard time understanding or will often times zone out and not understand what I'm reading or what is being said.

Any tip counts or even websites that will potentially offer help to me.

Michael’s Answer

It is especially hard to focus if you are either not interested in the material or you are feeling anxious. What I would do is make a list of what you have to do and spend only 10 minutes on one thing. Then take 10 min off to relax, listen to music, but be sure to go back for another 10 minutes and then see if over time you can do 20 minutes. Reward yourself each time you accomplish a small task.
If you are feeling anxious, just take one hand and put it on your left shoulder and the other hand on the other shoulder and give yourself a hug, and just hold on for a minute. Self talk is good too. Tell yourself out loud that you can do what you set your mind to do. Tell yourself that everyone has to learn how to focus and finish work, that this is a skill you can do. You are worth it!! What you do to discipline yourself is worth it. There is only one you, and the more you encourage yourself and then work towards that truth, the better your life will be.

I was the same way in high school, I found it super hard to learn and concentrate on school. The best thing that worked for me was using online flash cards, I really like using the anki app, it’s free and really helps you learn information and concepts.

One thing that helped me get organized as a youth was a planner. I know it does not seem useful right now, but it will keep you on track.
Example:
Monday
1. Math Class - working on algebra; quiz next week on Chp 2-3
2. Science Class - partnering up on group assignment
3. English Class - working on complete sentence - extra credit due end of week.

If you put a visual on what your day look like, then you can squeeze in studying.
1. Math Class - working on algebra; quiz next week on Chp 2-3
2. Science Class - partnering up on group assignment
3. English Class - working on complete sentence - extra credit due end of week.
4. No activities after school - 30 mins on algebra study guide
5. No activities after school - 30 mins work on extra credit.

If you set these goals for yourself and do them in small increments, you should be able to get your days on track and managed.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Nathaniel’s Answer

Trying to manage time anywhere is 1/2 of the problem. Placing limits on time only works if you have a vision of what you want to accomplish. In HS make it pretty generalized: Like going to college, health care, service industry. Try to meet a younger adult who has been out of school for a few years and talk to him about how he wished he had done differently looking back on his experience.

Priscilla’s Answer

Hello!
I would try to join a study group that is serious about studying. I would expect people to work together and help each other, and I think that would help you feel more focused.
Also, review your day, and see what is the time that you're most energetic and ready for work (for me, it's mornings and evenings - afternoons are no good), and tackle the more challenging subjects during those times. During the times you're less energetic, study subjects that are easier for you.
In order to focus, I recommend headphones, but music without lyrics. We can't overload the part of the brain linked to learning with trying to get what a person is singing.
Hope it helps, and good luck!
