How many times have you found yourself still staring at your textbook around midnight (or later!) even when you started your homework hours earlier? Those lost hours could be explained by Parkinson’s Law, which states, “Work expands to fill the time available for its completion.” In other words, if you give yourself all night to memorize those geometry formulas for your quiz tomorrow, you’ll inevitably find that a 30 minute task has somehow filled your entire evening.
We know that you have more homework than ever. But even with lots and lots to do, a few tweaks to your study routine could help you spend less time getting more accomplished. Here are 8 steps to make Parkinson’s Law work to your advantage:
1. Make a list
This should be a list of everything that has to be done that evening. And we mean, everything—from re-reading notes from this morning’s history class to quizzing yourself on Spanish vocabulary.
2. Estimate the time needed for each item on your list
You can be a little ruthless here. However long you think a task will take, try shaving off 5 or 10 minutes. But, be realistic. You won’t magically become a speed reader.

3. Gather all your gear
Collect EVERYTHING you will need for the homework you are working on (like your laptop for writing assignments and pencils for problem sets). Getting up for supplies takes you off course and makes it that much harder to get back to your homework.
The constant blings and beeps from your devices can make it impossible to focus on what you are working on. Switch off or silence your phones and tablets, or leave them in another room until it’s time to take a tech break.

5. Time yourself
Noting how much time something actually takes will help you estimate better and plan your next study session.
6. Stay on task
If you’re fact checking online, it can be so easy to surf on over to a completely unrelated site. A better strategy is to note what information you need to find online, and do it all at once at the end of the study session.
7. Take plenty of breaks
Most of us need a break between subjects or to break up long stretches of studying. Active breaks are a great way to keep your energy up. Tech breaks can be an awesome way to combat the fear of missing out that might strike while you are buried in your work, but they also tend to stretch much longer than originally intended. Stick to a break schedule of 10 minutes or so.
8. Reward yourself!
Finish early? If you had allocated 30 minutes for reading a biology chapter and it only took 20, you can apply those extra 10 minutes to a short break—or just move on to your next task. If you stay on track, you might breeze through your work quickly enough to catch up on some Netflix.
Our best piece of advice? Keep at it. The more you use this system, the easier it will become. You’ll be surprised by how much time you can shave off homework just by focusing and committing to a distraction-free study plan.

Doing homework can be both time-consuming and frustrating, and you probably want to do more with your free time than just homework. When you have a lot of work to do, it can be tough to work efficiently. By staying focused, organizing and planning, and motivating yourself, you can get your homework done in a timely manner and move onto more fun and exciting activities. But you should start with putting away all distractions such as your devices unless you need them.They are normally the main distraction. You should also work in a quiet place so you are not attempted to go and do something else. For example, you should not work near your TV because you will be tempted to go and watch it.
- Download website-blocking apps such as Freedom or SelfControl to stay focused while using your computer for homework. Some, such as the Chrome extension Strict Workflow, even have the added bonus of preventing you from cancelling the timer once it has started.
- If one subject or type of assignment is taking much more time than the others, you may want to ask for a little extra help in that area from your teacher or parent.
- If you get distracted or go off-task, don't make excuses for yourself. (e.g. "I won't be able to focus until I do this anyway." or "I'm sure it will only take a minute or two."
- Consider consolidating your multiple different subject folders and notebooks into one big binder separated by tab dividers. This way, all of your schoolwork will be in one place.
- Decide how much time you want to spend on your homework collectively.
- Make a list of all the different tasks you need to finish.
- Estimate how much time you’ll be able to spend on each task to finish your homework when you want to.
- Work straight through your list and cross tasks off as you go.  X Research source
- A ten page essay that’s due in a week that you haven’t started should be labeled an “A” or “B” while a short five question worksheet due in three days may be labeled a “C”.
- Make sure you don't wait until the last second to get assignments done.

Homework Hacks: 8 Tips to Get It Done Faster
Homework is no fun, especially if you’ve got a full schedule. You only have a little bit of time and a little bit of energy. And it takes so long to get through it.
Not anymore. We’ve got some helpful homework hacks for you that will make doing your homework faster and less painful.
1. Plan Your Homework and Make a List
When you start your homework, you’ll probably jump right into the first thing on your mind or the first thing you pull out of your backpack, then work your way through the rest of your assignments. There’s a better way.
Figure out how much time you have to do homework, then list out all the different tasks that you have to do. Estimate how long it will take to complete each assignment to see if you need to allow yourself more time. Be realistic. Once your list is complete you can work straight through instead of stopping frequently to figure out what to do next. It will also be extremely gratifying to cross things off after each assignment you finish!
2. Get Out All the Books and Supplies You Need
While you’re working, you discover you need a calculator, you need a certain book, you need a new pencil, you ran out of paper… the list can go on.
Since you’ve now identified all your assignments, figure out everything you need to get each item done and bring it to your workspace so it’s there when you need it.
3. Find a Quiet Place to Work Without Distractions
Speaking of workspace, you probably prefer doing your homework in front of the TV, but that can actually be the biggest distraction of all. Sitting in front of the TV is probably slowing you down, making homework time seem much longer that it actually is.
Find a place that’s quiet, with as few distractions and clutter possible. Remember, the faster you get it done, the faster you can get back to fully enjoying Netflix.
4. Turn Off Your Phone
We know this is probably the last thing you want to hear. How can you live without your phone? But for a couple hours, its totally worth it. Every time you get a notification and check your phone, it breaks your focus. It then takes more brain power to get back on track to what you were working on.
5. Listen to Classical Music While Working
We know what you’re thinking… Classical music? Seriously?
However, classical music is great for background audio. There aren’t any lyrics or beats to distract your focus. And research has shown that students who listen to classical music score higher on tests than students who listen to other genres of music. So find some good classical playlist on Spotify, then celebrate with Queen Bey when you’re done.
6. Eat Snacks and Drink Water
At the end of a long day, you may be mentally and physically tired. If you go straight into homework it may take you a long time to finish and it won’t be your best work.
Having some light healthy snacks and drinking plenty of water helps revitalize your brain and body. Avoid soda, energy drinks, or sugary snacks that will only make you crash before you’re done.
7. Take Short Breaks in Between Homework Tasks
If you have a lot to do, you may feel the pressure to just work straight through hours and hours of homework. But this will likely end up slowing you down, prolonging the entire session.
Do your work in short sprints. Go hard at a task, then take a quick break to stretch and walk around. It’ll re-energize your mind and body to keep going. For starters, try working for 25 minutes, then taking a 5-minute break.
8. Reward Yourself After You’re Finished
Homework isn’t always fun. But negativity can slow you down.
Our brains work off of reward systems. If you give yourself a reward when finishing your homework, it makes it a lot easier to start your homework the next time and you’ll get through it faster. Rewards could be being able to watch a show, eat ice cream, play a game, or going out and doing something fun.
Now that you’ve got all these tips, go get your homework done faster than ever before. It may be hard at first, but keep using these tips and it’ll get easier as you go.

When is the best time to do your homework?
Getting your homework done as soon as you can is always a good idea.
After your classes, the information you’ve learned is still fresh in your memory. So applying these concepts in your assignments will be easier.
It also helps to have a routine – for instance, getting started on your homework one hour before dinner every weekday.
Find out when the best time to study is for you and build your schedule around it.
Let’s say that you always feel motivated to complete your schoolwork as soon as possible. If so, you can leverage this motivation by diving into your assignments right when you get home.
But if you need a short break, you can set a timer for 30 minutes to an hour once you get home to remind you to get started after you’ve had some rest.
What to do when you have a lot of homework
When this happens, you might feel stressed or overwhelmed.
When your to-do list gets longer and longer, the best thing you can do is to stay calm and focused.
Set yourself up to enter a flow state where you focus solely on the task at hand.
Write down all your pending assignments, and take on just one task at a time. Set a goal and timeframe for each task, and minimize distractions in your study environment.
If the assignment is complex, break it down into smaller and less intimidating steps. Checking these smaller goals off your list as you go can keep you motivated and focused.
How to finish homework fast
It’s important to work hard, but it’s also important to work smart .
Here are some of the best time-saving productivity hacks for students to make it easier and faster to complete their homework.
1. Consistently keep track of your homework
One of the biggest mistakes I see students make is thinking they’ll remember all of their assigned tasks.
I don’t doubt that you have a good memory. But keeping track of your homework by writing things down is much more efficient.
Keep a physical or digital list of all your pending assignments and their deadlines. You can consistently track your tasks using this list. A notebook or note-taking app would work well.
When it’s time to work on your assignments, pull out this list and start with the most urgent task that has the closest deadline. Continue working your way through the list based on how urgent each task is.
The list clarifies which assignments require immediate attention and which can be done another day.
This allows you to dive right into doing your homework and saves precious time.
Making lists can lighten your brain’s workload . It also helps to reduce anxiety and boost productivity.
2. Spruce things up with a study buddy
One of the best ways to boost motivation and get the ball rolling is by doing homework with a study buddy.
Having someone with you can help you to stay engaged and on task.
You’ll keep each other accountable and ensure that all assignments are completed on time.
During these study sessions, you can work together to solve challenging questions and understand difficult concepts.
3. Remove distractions (especially electronic ones)
Procrastination and distractions can kill your productivity.
Here are some study strategies to help you combat procrastination and make the most of your time:
- Find an ideal study environment at your school or at the library, or create an optimal work environment at home.
- Use earplugs or noise-canceling earphones to reduce external distractions.
- Keep only the materials and stationery you need at your desk. You can also have a water bottle and a few snacks prepared, so you won’t have to get up midway through your study session.
- Turn off your phone. In fact, it’s best to keep all your devices in a different room or at least out of arm’s reach.
- If a thought or idea pops into your head, instead of acting on it, write it down. Maybe it’s an errand you need to run or a friend you promised to call. Acknowledge these thoughts by writing them down, then take care of them after you’ve completed your homework.
4. Create a reward system
A reward system nurtures motivation – at least in the short term – by giving you something to look forward to.
It trains your brain to understand that hard work results in an enjoyable outcome. Plus, it builds a positive association with homework.
So identify some reasonable rewards that you’d enjoy. List out items or activities you value that are consistent with your goals.
What works best is building multiple practical rewards into your homework routine.
For example, you could reward yourself by listening to your favorite music after every 45-minute work session. Or you could have a quick, healthy snack after completing each set of practice questions.
Of course, you can occasionally use big rewards too. After finishing a complex assignment or a long practice exam, treat yourself to something special, like watching a show with your friends.
5. Gamify your study session
Why are video games so much fun?
Games are designed to keep you hooked on leveling up your character, exploring new worlds, and unlocking rewards.
But what if I told you that you could apply specific video game principles to your homework sessions to keep you motivated?
Research suggests that gamification could address motivational problems related to work and learning. So applying this concept will make homework and studying more fun !
One of the simplest ways to do this is by downloading gamification apps.
Some examples include Forest , EpicWin , and Habitica . These apps have features that allow you to unlock new game elements, rank up, or collect points.
This enables you to track your progress and stay on task.
6. Create a dedicated workspace
Having a suitable place at home to study will help you complete your homework faster.
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach, so it’s important to personalize your workspace based on what enables you to focus best.
For example, one person might enjoy having a bunch of stationery, Post-it notes, and colorful highlighters on his or her desk. But these might only serve as distractions for others.
Some people might work best with white noise or a little background chatter. On the other hand, some people might only be able to concentrate in a quiet environment.
So feel free to experiment to find what works best for you. Here are some general tips to get you started:
- Ensure that there’s adequate lighting and keep your space at a comfortable temperature.
- Reduce stress with the right scents, e.g. use a pleasant-smelling room fragrance or diffuse an essential oil.
- Personalize your work desk with items like a memo board, calendar, clock, or artwork.
- Keep your desk well-organized and clean.
- Invest in a good office chair.
7. Make a study plan
It also takes the guesswork out of the equation when allocating time.
Here’s how you can create an effective study plan:
- Cater to your specific learning preferences. Are you more productive in the morning or evening? How long can you focus without a break? Whenever possible, plan your schedule based on the times of the day that suit you best.
- Create deadlines that fall a few days before the actual ones. This gives you a cushion in case your assignments or projects take longer than expected.
- Space out your homework into blocks with rest intervals. For example, you could divide your work into 40-minute work blocks with 10-minute breaks in between.
- Limit social media usage during breaks. Scrolling through social media can take a toll on your mental capacity and eat up more time than you intended. Instead, engage in less mentally-taxing activities, like taking a stroll, performing simple stretches, or having a light snack.
8. Break up your homework into manageable chunks
It’s natural to sometimes feel overwhelmed by your assignments – especially the long, complicated, and tedious ones.
Getting started on a large or complex task might seem like you’re biting off more than you can chew. In turn, this can lead to procrastination.
One tried-and-tested study tip for handling challenging tasks is to break them down into smaller chunks.
List out each smaller task and work through the project bit by bit. You can even use programs and apps like Trello, Asana, or Notion to create daily to-do lists and keep tabs on your progress.
When you do this, the tasks become much more doable, so you’ll be able to submit your assignments on time.
How to finish homework at the last minute
But if you find yourself in this situation, the most important thing to do is to prioritize well.
Which assignments are due the soonest? And which tasks account for what percentage of your overall grade?
Write down all your pending tasks. Then, prioritize those with the closest deadlines.
You should give your best effort for every assignment, project, quiz, etc. But if you’re running out of time, it may not be possible to give your 100% effort. So do just what’s required and move on.
But make a firm commitment that you won’t do your homework at the last minute again in the future!
While homework is part and parcel of student life (and an important one at that), it shouldn’t have to be something you dread.
Try these 8 proven strategies to help you do your homework faster while making it more enjoyable!

10 Interesting Tips For Doing Homework Late At Night
Whether you thrive working late at night or have trouble getting anything done because of the temptation to give up to the comforts of sleep, most students will have to do homework late at night more than a few times in their lives. This is why we’ve created this list of 10 interesting tips to help you get through those moments:
17% OFF on your first order Type the code 17TUDENT
- 1. Have Some Caffeine Early in the Evening
It’s never a good idea to have caffeine too late into the night or can lose some of the valuable sleep your body needs to recover. But if you have caffeine about four to six hours before you plan to go to sleep you can use that energy to drive your homework study time.
- 2. Prepare a Number of Snacks for Energy
Having some snacks handy will make it easy for you to reenergize throughout the evening. Try to stay away from sugary snacks that can actually have a negative effect and lead to energy crashes.
- 3. Set Up Your Work Area Away from the Bed
If you need to stay up late then it’s probably not a good idea to do you work anywhere near your bed. Set up your work facing away from your bed or in another room to avoid the temptation of laying down.
- 4. Organize Your Assignments Before Starting
Don’t waste time digging around your backpack for whatever books or notepads you need to work through your assignments. Take out all of your needed materials beforehand to save you valuable time.
- 5. Create a Task List to Check-Off as You Go
Keeping yourself organized can also be made easier by creating a task list that you can check-off as you complete each step of your assignments. This can also be a great way to keep you motivated.
- 6. Turn Off All Distractions to Stay Focused
Unless your homework requires you to work online, you should turn off the internet as well as all other common distractions such as the television or your cell phone.
- 7. Turn On Some Light Music to Stay Awake
It might be a good idea to have a little music to keep you awake. Just don’t choose anything that is too loud or distracting. Perhaps something that will likely grab your attention but not negatively affect your work habits.
- 8. Create a Schedule to Keep Track of Time
Take a look at your assignments and figure out how long it will take to complete each task. Stay on top of this schedule to the best of your abilities so that you don’t spend too much time on any one part.
- 9. Turn Your Breaks Into Activities to Energize
When you take your breaks try to do something to energize your body and rest your mind. Don’t lay down for a short nap; you might just fall asleep for the night. Go for a walk or do some light exercises instead.
- 10. Review Each Section Before Moving Forward
Lastly, review each section before moving on to the next. Doing so will ensure that you understand where you are at in your assignment as well give you the drive and focus to move onto the next challenge.
9 Important Tips On How To Finish Your Homework Faster

That’s why they think that how can they finish their homework fast? So they can do other activities. So they search for various help and strategies on the internet to finish their homework on time.
If you are one of them, then you don’t have to worry about that because we have provided some of the best and proven tips to complete homework fast. With these tips, you can complete your homework on time.
Let’s start with these tips and tricks one by one to finish homework quickly.
How to Finish Your Homework Faster
Table of Contents
- Tip 1: Arrange everything before beginning your homework
- Tip 2: Make a suitable timetable
- Tip 3: Make desirable deadlines
- Tip 4: Identify disturbing elements in your homework environment
- Tip 5: Restrict the utilization of technology
- Tip 6: Have “breaks” more often
- Tip 7: Do not hesitate to take help
Tip #1: Arrange everything before beginning your homework
It is one of the foremost things students need to identify whether they have sufficient study material (such as books, notes, newspapers, and much more) or not before initiating homework. Your resources will help you to save time while doing homework, as it might be challenging to do during your homework writing.
If you are unable to find something important, it can waste your precious time. Consequently, it will increase your difficulty level to come back again and write homework with the same flow. If learners have suitable plans, they can complete their homework and set up the things in their study table to utilize them.
Tip #2: Make a suitable timetable
