    Hey,
    I saw your forum and I have had the same issue come up when I was a student in college. When my assignments got overwhelming, I had a system that helped me. I would work on one assignment and when I needed to take a rest from that one, I would turn my focus on another assignment. I also planned a schedule based on my class to see which one needed to be done first. I hoped this was helpful and I hope you have a great day.

    I think sometimes switching tasks helps to keep the focus if you start to zone out on one task. I’ve sometimes done that. In addition, I have an Alexa device that I use as a timer and sometimes set it to take a scheduled break (e.g. 20 minutes) when I lose focus and during that time I can play a computer game, play with my pets, or simply surf the web and when the timer goes off I return to work and refocus. Different things work well for different students and there is no one right way. Good luck with your studies.
