Hey Bri,
How do you motivate yourself enough to avoid cramming and leaving things to the last minute?

Hey Snow Leopard,

I wasn't always motivated but I developed strong study discipline. Some of the key components of this were:
- if I couldn't muster the willpower to do a big task I'd try doing a less overwhelming task (e.g. doing an exam is too intimidating? Try some multiple choice questions or watching a video on the topic). Motivation can work like momentum so it was important to me to have small things and be able to break down tasks if I wasn't ready for larger ones.
- seeing a counsellor, talking to my friends, getting adequate sleep,  and having things that weren't study. Mental health is really important so try to build in things that help you take care of it
- to do lists.  I like the feeling of physically crossing things off & seeing a list of things I've done
- having a place in my room where I studied and didn't do anything else
- I used a chrome add-on so I could monitor and regulate how much time I spent on social media

Hope this helps :)
