Writing things down that I have to do for that day and also looking ahead to see what is due and figuring out when I should start working on it. I also have a color coded Google calendar so one color for events another for work another for fitness etc. – Grace J.
Time blocking! As in setting hours in the day aside for homework and then breaking down what I need to do by the hour. – Madelyn D. 

Planning on my fun or relaxing activity for the day so that I know what I’ll reward myself with when I’ve accomplished my goals for the day!! – Olivia A.

I try to plan out every day and incorporate time to take breaks within the schedule so I don’t end up on TikTok for hours. Also, I try to do the majority of my work on campus before going home so my room stays as stress-free as possible. – Claire U.
