Many people have a tendency to slack off during their last year of school, and it has become known as a phenomenon referred to as senioritis. It’s your last year so you know you don’t have to try as hard, but if you do procrastinate, you set yourself up for failure. If you are experiencing senioritis, then there are several things you can do to get out of the senior funk, and help you make the most of your last year of school.

Keep a Checklist

Working hard during final year of college

Keeping a checklist of all of the things you have to do will help keep you on your toes. Every day, you should write down a list of things you would like to have accomplished by the end of the day. This can include things such as chores and homework assignments. Make a conscious effort to cross everything off by the end of the day.

Don’t Procrastinate

There are a number of ways slacking off can affect your future. For example, if you miss too many days of class, then you may not be able to graduate. Missing too many days, and not turning in your assignments can also cause your grades to drop. Thinking about the many ways that slacking off can negatively affect you, will help to keep you focused. When you feel the urge to wait on something, consider the consequences of leaving it off first.

Visit The Career Center

Many seniors are unmotivated near the end, because they are not sure what they want to do after graduation. Make time in your schedule to visit the career center at your school.  Your advisor may encourage you to visit a career assessment site, which can help you decide which career is right for you.

Start Planning Ahead of Time

Many seniors get stressed out at the end of the year, because they have so many things to do. When you feel overwhelmed it’s easier to slack off and put off important projects, but you can save time by planning early. If you have applications to submit, then you should try to get them all in way before the deadline.

Complete Your Bucket List

You likely have some things you would like to do before you graduate. Now is a great time to start working on this list. Completing your bucket list will not only help you avoid senioritis, but can help make your senior year more fun.

Set Some Goals

Take some time to sit down and think of goals you’d like to accomplish either before or after you graduation. Setting goals can help you stay focused. Once you set your goals, start working on them right away!

Take Care of Yourself

Your senior year can be overwhelming which is why it is important to take good care of yourself. Make sure you get plenty of sleep, exercise, and eat right.

It is tempting to slack off during your final year in school. However, you can stay focused by setting goals, working on your bucket list, visiting the career center, and planning ahead. Taking the time to figure things out before it gets hectic will help you keep a cool head and your goals clearly focused.
