Stress is inevitable in any situation whether is is academic or personal. It is important to persevere and not allow grades to falter or success to falter. Everyone can agree that most people wish to do well and receive the best grades because it is what society tends to push on students. 

It is certainly important to try incredulously hard at times, but it is not always possible. It is imperative to do well on tasks that count a lot, although it may not seem important it is better to work hard now than to be exerting oneself a lot later. Being proactive, being secure, and being confident are all key components to prosperity. Some advice from Junior Carina Muñoz is, “Apply yourself, study, do homework, quit playing games in class and pay attention.”

It is understandable to have days that are not the best due to whatever reason, but making the most out the days that are all right is what counts. Acquiring desired grades can be difficult, but it can also be simple. Without a doubt procrastination is a major issue; it is an action most students have trouble with, but like any problem it has a solution.

It is different for every person because people are individuals with distinct characteristics. A quote from Ashley Trujillo states, “There’s not much you can do just pay attention and don’t procrastinate.” This may work for many but not for everyone and that is utterly okay.

Effort in any shape or form is worthy whether anyone thinks so or not. Allowing time for breaks and drawing the line between school work, extracurriculars, and personal activities is vital. There is this timer that is effective called Pomodoro Timer and it works by allowing a 25 minute time for work, followed by a 5 minute break, and after four of these sessions there is a 15 minute break permitted. It is a way to work under a set amount of time and be productive, and it is incredibly adjustable with time too. Coping with stress and balancing academics with other activities is important.
