As a student, is it hard to find the time to make school and grades a priority? As a son or daughter, sibling, or relative, do you spend much time helping out your family or loved ones?

Having Control Over The Daily Schedule That You Need to Succeed
When setting up a schedule that works best for your life to create a positive learning environment, below are tips you can use to make your learning time a priority.
Develop a plan-
Begin by writing out the hours you have scheduled already for a job(s), family commitments, etc. Then, fill in hours for school work in your open times. It’s OK to go to school at night if you need to. Just be consistent! When you are enrolled in our Arizona online high school for free, you gain the scheduling flexibility and the support system you need to succeed. You own your education and its’ outcomes. Develop a realistic schedule that works so you can plan to succeed. We are here to help you do just that! Did you know that four out of five Hope High School Online students go on to higher education? We think you can too!
Make a list of your priorities starting from most important to least important. School, work, and family responsibilities are on the top of your list, so schedule out your time in your calendar for these things first. Then fill in the rest with the items on your list like hanging out with friends or cleaning your room and house.
Schedule in advance-
Mark upcoming school deadlines on post-it it notes, a paper calendar, or in your phone. Choose a scheduling method that you will remember to check daily and is easy to use. Block off time for studying, upcoming projects, and homework to keep yourself accountable.
Work smarter, not harder-
Find ways to do two things at once. Study with note cards you made during lunch break at work or if you are in the car and someone else is driving. Or, record yourself reading notes from a class or reading information from your notecards and practice while driving in the car. Utilizing this empty time will free up time in your schedule you would have had planned for studying.
Watch for signs of burn out-
Red flags to watch out for are feeling overly tired, drinking more caffeine than usual, losing interest in your job or classes, or becoming irritable and unable to concentrate. Take some time to give yourself a break and relax to refocus. Go for a hike, go to a movie with friends, cook dinner with your family, these fun activities can give yourself a chance to enjoy your time when you are feeling stressed.
Remember, you’re doing it!-
Although the juggle of responsibilities can seem overwhelming and your schedule can feel too hectic, remember that you are putting in the hard work for the better outcome in the future. Focus on your goals and the end result to help you stay focused on your success.
