As the fourth quarter of the year starts, many students tend to lose motivation. We’re tired, we have massive amounts of homework to complete, and let’s face it: most of us don’t really want to be at school.

Although it might be a pain, organizing school supplies can actually increase motivation and productivity in the long run.

A convenient way to stay organized and motivated is by creating a bullet journal, which is essentially a combination between a planner and a notebook that has surfaced on social media over the past few years. Actually, when I started mine, I felt a little too organized. Starting a bullet journal can help students stay motivated and remember their assignments.

Another thing that helps increase productivity is purchasing new school supplies. Some people might disagree, but for me, there’s nothing more satisfying than brand new pens and notebooks. Also, at this point in the year, many students’ folders and binders are falling apart, making it difficult to keep track of assignments. Grabbing some new school supplies might make students feel more organized and ready to complete homework.

Whether it’s by starting a bullet journal, buying new school supplies, or simply cleaning out our backpacks, we should stay organized, especially towards the end of the year to keep us productive.
