How can I stress less on work load, when I get ap homework every day?

I am a high school freshman in ap human geography. Each night I have to read the textbook throughout the whole school week (total of 11-14 pages), or complete paper written packet and turn in the beginning of next class. And I sort of fall behind to catch up to finish work from my other classes.

It is always critical to prioritize tasks.....but then another tactic that is helpful is to "be present" and organized. Focus on 1 task at a time, "be present", thoughtful and thorough while you're working on it and resist anxiety about the other tasks since they are further down your priority list!! Do your best, stay organized, feel good about progress and then move on next task!!
Thank you comment icon I get that focusing one task at a time would help me feel more confident completing assignments on time, since I don't have to worry about them all at once. But thanks a lot for the advice! Linda

You might share your concern with your teacher to determine if the AP course is a good fit for you.

At the end of the day, try to plan a few minutes to relax and focus on the high points of your day. And know that this will pass in time.

With every good wish.
Thank you comment icon I'm doing fine in ap human, recently, my teacher for that course has calmed down from giving me the work load and wants me review the unit. I will work on letting my guard down once in a while, thank you. Linda

Managing a heavy workload, especially in AP classes, can be challenging, but there are strategies to help you stress less and stay on track:

1. **Prioritize and Plan**: Create a weekly schedule that allocates specific time blocks for each subject, including AP Human Geography. Prioritize tasks and focus on completing high-priority assignments first.

2. **Break It Down**: Divide your workload into smaller, manageable tasks. For your AP Human Geography reading, consider breaking it down into sections to tackle each day.

3. **Set Realistic Goals**: Be realistic about what you can accomplish in a day. Don't overload yourself with too many tasks; quality over quantity is key.

4. **Time Management**: Use time management techniques like the Pomodoro technique (25 minutes of focused work, followed by a 5-minute break) to maintain concentration and avoid burnout.

5. **Seek Help**: If you're struggling with a particular concept or assignment, don't hesitate to ask your teacher for clarification or assistance. They are there to help you succeed.

6. **Utilize Resources**: Take advantage of study resources like online summaries, study groups, or tutoring to enhance your understanding and make studying more efficient.

7. **Healthy Lifestyle**: Ensure you're getting enough sleep, eating well, and incorporating physical activity into your routine. A healthy lifestyle can improve focus and reduce stress.

8. **Learn to Say No**: If you're overcommitted with extracurricular activities or other responsibilities, consider cutting back to free up more study time.

9. **Stay Organized**: Use tools like calendars, to-do lists, or digital apps to keep track of assignments and deadlines.

10. **Stay Positive**: Maintain a positive mindset. Acknowledge your achievements, no matter how small, and remind yourself that you can handle the workload.

Remember that it's okay to seek support from your parents or guardians as well. They can help create a conducive study environment at home and provide encouragement. Balancing your workload effectively will not only reduce stress but also improve your overall learning experience.
