Does saying “I have to..” make it more difficult for you to get things done?

Before we get to today’s video,I wanted to remind you that in an effort to answer your questions around teens and technology , please join me on Tuesday, May 5th at 1pm Pacific Time for an interview with Julie Paul, the director of Heard It From A Friend, an organization that helps families artfully and practically navigate screen time with their children and teens. This webinar is appropriate for parents of students of all ages. Teens, you are also welcome to attend!

If you can’t attend live, you can still sign up to receive the recording.

Now for today’s study tip:

I’ve noticed that some of my students are putting more pressure on themselves to get their work done which is stressing them out and making it more difficult to complete tasks. There are always tasks that need to get done, of course! And sometimes we put unnecessary pressure on ourselves that make it actually harder to complete those tasks. In this video I show you how to change the “have-tos” into kinder more specific action words so that not only can you practice being nice to yourself…but also so that you can complete tasks more efficiently and with more ease.

How to change “I have to..” into an invitation or a curiosity…

Also, I continue to offer Virtual Office Hours (Monday-Friday 12pm-1pm Pacific Time ): Open to students who would like to work in community or have a brief question. You can come and go anytime between 12-1pm.

If you are feeling stuck or would like to discuss how academic coaching might help you please feel free to sign up here for a complimentary Destressify Yourself Session.

If I can be of service in any other way, please feel free to reach out!

Wishing you a stress-less week!
