Senioritis is defined as a supposed affliction of students in their final year of high school or college, characterized by a decline in motivation or performance.” We probably all know and understand this infectious disease can affect most, if not all, seniors. Hopefully this article will provide everyone with the right tools in order to defend ourselves from this GPA killer.

 

 

  • Keep the Goal (Graduation) in mind.

 

We’ve all been working diligently these past thirteen years in school. I can’t imagine anyone would want to miss the chance to receive a diploma with their classmates. That is the ultimate goal of high school, to receive our very own diploma. Don’t let a lack of motivation for one year take away thirteen years of effort.

 

  • Do your assignments right after school, don’t wait!

 

By doing our homework after school, it prevents us from procrastinating. Remember: procrastination can lead to all sorts of stress, therefore, we don’t want procrastination to creep into our daily lives. Furthermore, by completing your homework early, you can have the rest of the evening to yourself and don’t have to compete with the clock.

 

  • Think positively…don’t accept the fact that you might already have senioritis.

 

Be optimistic! Don’t buy into the fact that you may already have senioritis and make it an excuse. You can do it! Keep going and don’t give up because we are all in this together. If we all fight against senioritis, we can all make it through this year with the same motivation that we have had in the past few years or possibly have even more motivation.

 

  • Challenge yourself to do better every day.

 

By waking up in the morning and thinking about all the things you want to accomplish, you are already on the right foot. Challenging yourself to be better than the day before makes for an even better anecdote to senioritis. Continually working hard to improve your grade or improve your attitude, you are one step closer to being senioritis-free.
