Ease Your Way Back Into School With These Great Tips
Career Path : Education News
It’s that time of year again—summer has officially reached its end, the weather has grown a little colder, and Starbucks has started selling its renowned Pumpkin Spice Lattes. For new students and those heading back to continue their studies, the seasonal change also marks the beginning of a brand-new school year.
Everyone knows that starting a new semester can be very stressful, but if you prepare yourself ahead of time, getting back into the routine should be a breeze.
Start off on the right foot with these great tips:
Always Remember to Eat Breakfast
At one point or another, we’ve all opted out of eating breakfast for an additional thirty minutes of sleep. However, research has shown that eating a nutritious meal every morning actually boosts productivity. Therefore, in order to have enough energy to make it through your morning classes, breakfast is an absolute must!
Hack: Breakfast smoothies are a very quick (and healthy) alternative to cooking a meal each morning. Cut up and freeze enough fresh fruit to get you through an entire week. This way, all you’ll need to do in the morning is throw the fruit into a blender and pour.
Backpack Essentials for the Savvy Student
Every student’s backpack is filled with textbooks, pens, paper and binders—which is great, because you’ll definitely need these for your classes. But what about the items that most people forget? Be prepared for anything the school day might throw your way with these five backpack essentials:
- Hand sanitizer
- Mini stapler
Create a Schedule and Stick With It
Whether you use a traditional paperback (or hardcover) agenda, or the calendar featured on your mobile device, you’ll want to start using it on the very first day of school.
Teachers typically hand out a syllabus on the first day of class—this contains all of the assignments and tests you can expect throughout the year or semester. Use this information to your advantage by plugging the due dates into your agenda or calendar. This way, you’ll remember to start preparing weeks or days in advance, giving you a stress-free head start.
