My Remote Space
A challenge in remote learning

Battling Procrastination by Lauren Muldowney

During the 1st Semester of my 2nd year of college, students had limited access to the college. With classes online for 3 days of the week and within college for 2 days.  

Half way through the semester it was decided that our content be delivered completely online and has remained that way and carried into the 2nd semester of this year.  

Due to it being a remote space with nearly all students struggling to learn in some way, we had to adapt and find ways to make it work and to ensure we succeed.  

My biggest struggle last semester was procrastination, a vicious cycle of putting off work for another day, stressing about assignments building up and waiting until the last possible moment to complete them. 

To combat this, I have started to use a planner. I write down even the most mediocre of tasks that I will have to complete that day in chronological order.  

Doing this has helped me to get out of my own head and see that in reality all I have to do is a few small tasks each day. This method of procrastinating is something I will be carrying on post COVID.
