  2. A key aspect that might make you hate homework is that you may not be good at the subject or did not pay attention in class to review or recollect what was taught. Any science related assignment cannot be completed if you no interest in those subjects. If you like history or literature then it would be hard for you to like Math or Science assignment but then those subjects also have to be completed for you to get higher grades and finish high school.

  4. Do some research and understand why teachers and the school’s world over give out homework and assignment to students. This might change your perspective about homework once you understand the primary objectives and goals of homework
  5. It could be that you don’t have enough time for other extra-curricular activities or hobbies that you feel homework eats into that time. The best way to deal with this is to plan and prioritize your homework and complete it. If you are in a job, please the working hours so that one does not interfere with the other. Create a schedule and try to adhere to it

Now that we have looked at some traditional ways to get motivated, here are some sophisticated methods

5 Sophisticated Tips to Motivate You to Complete Homework

  1. Use the Pomodoro Technique - Have you heard of the Pomodoro technique? If not please do a lookup on the internet. The crux of this technique is to be organized and work against a timer. A typical session of 30-minute duration is recommended. After you complete a session, a short 5-10-minute break is a good way to refresh and start again.
  2. Inspire Yourself - You can write inspirational messages or quotes as part of a technique known as positive therapy. Small one-liner like “I can see this through,” or “I will submit my homework on time.” Can do a lot to motivate you to complete the homework
  3. Reward yourself – There is no motivation like a reward. You can create your rewards program and each time you beat that time to complete the homework you can treat yourself with that favorite ice cream or chocolate. The list can be endless with things that you like. The more the higher the motivational levels
  4. Own Your Failures - If you missed once or twice to complete your homework, you should understand that this was your responsibility and you missed it rather than blaming the teacher or how hard the subject is, etc.
  5. Identify and Create Your Learning Style – Not all students are created equal! So why follow the usual learning style. Identify and create a style that works for you. You might have a great memory and can recollect what you heard in class or if you are more visual memory person, then try to visualize everything and then recollect.  Creating mind maps or infographics will help you if you prefer visualizing everything when you study.

I hope either the traditional or sophisticated tips will help you get motivated to complete your homework. You can very well create a mix of both these and make a new list that works for you.
