      I am in my 30’s and in nursing school. I was doing ok until all of my classes changed to entirely online with the pandemic. Now I struggle to come up with a way to stay on top of my lectures, homework, and other important things to do. I struggle with organization and how to not get distracted when I have a long list of tasks/homework to get done and its all on my own schedule. I have a day planner but I’m not very good at utilizing it effectively. Sometimes a whole day passes and I have just gotten distracted with other things. Does anyone have any good tips or systems to prioritize and create a schedule? I take stimulant medications which are helpful. Cheers!
