Anxiety about schoolwork


I have a fear that all my schoolwork is going to be wrong so I don't do it. I sit down in front of my computer to do my work and then I get all anxious of how much work I have to do and feel like I am going to do it wrong so I end up not handing in anything. (Plus I have no motivation to do any work bc depression). Anyone else relate?

If you think this is the end, then its not the end

I used to do that. I'd sit there, overwhelmed, not knowing where to start, or unsure of how to do the work... What helps is going into what I call ***** it mode & just starting... Just making that first attempt will get the ball rolling, hopefully easing some anxiety in the process. Also, Google is Goddess, if you need help with something!

Not doing your schoolwork is going to add even more anxiety to your life. Long term anxiety. I'd say a good source of motivation would be to avoid that anxiety and the only way to do that is to hand in your work.



Try listening to music while you do schoolwork. Even if you don't enjoy it, the music will get you through it
