“Dear Margot, I have been dealing with senioritis, what can I do to help this?”
Hey there fellow Monsoon!
As a senior myself I can completely understand where you are coming from, senioritis is a term used to describe the feeling of being mentally checked out or less motivated during your final year of high school or college because you're close to graduating. It's quite common to experience a decrease in motivation or focus during this time. Just remember to stay on track, finish strong, and keep your eye on the prize of graduation!
To think, we have come a very long way for some of us who have been here since 7th grade! That is 6 years! But look how far you've come, you can’t give up now! You have so many fun events to look forward to such as senior prom, grad night and senior trips! Just try your best to surround yourself with people who will support you through this and you will have a lovely senior year!
Some effective ways to stay motivated during these times include:
1. Stay organized: Create a schedule or to-do list to keep track of your assignments and deadlines so you don’t fall behind!
2. Set goals: Break down your tasks into smaller, manageable goals to stay motivated and focused.
3. Reward yourself: Treat yourself after completing a task or reaching a milestone. It'll keep you motivated during these next few months.
4. Stay engaged: Find ways to stay interested in your classes. Connect the material to your future goals in life.
Remember, the finish line is in sight, and you've got this! Keep pushing through, and graduation will be here before you know it.
