Are You Dreading the New Semester? Check out These 5 Back to School Tips

Well, like it or not, school we be starting soon. Actually, it will be starting a lot sooner for some depending on your school.

It can be dreading to even think of going back to school, but it’s one of those things that you have to do until you’re a certain age, and blah, blah, blah, lol.

I know how you feel. I can remember dreading the day I had to return to school, however, I was prepared for it.

While it won’t have you doing cartwheels, here are some back to school tips that will hopefully get you out the rut and into preparing for the new semester.

1. Have all of your school supplies – I sort of have a fetish for stationery. Anything that I could either write with or on I wanted. I never ran out of that stuff and neither should you.

Supplies are important while you’re in school and you should definitely be prepared. I can’t tell you how many times someone asked me to borrow a pencil and a piece of paper in class and how fast I got tired of it.

Some schools will provide a list of everything you will need, but if yours doesn’t, go with the necessities. Pretty much everything you had last year is what you’ll need this year. Anything additional you need your instructors should let you know.

2. Wake up earlier – It might be a good idea to practice getting up earlier about a week before you have to go back to school. That way, your body will already be used to the early morning rise.

3. Plan your lunches – Figure out what kind of lunches you want to take to school with you daily. Make a calendar and put in on the fridge. Have your lunches prepared the night before so that you don’t have to struggle with it the next day.

Parents tend to want to stick a lot of healthy stuff in your lunch bag, which is good, but if you want to offset it with a snack, then let them know so that they can shop for the things you like.

4. Set a schedule for homework – Like it or not, where there’s school, homework is not too far behind. We love to hate it, but it has to be done.

Try setting a time for doing homework. Figure out your daily schedule and pick a time where you can fit in homework. If you have extracurricular activities, try scooting those around so that you can get some homework done.

Everything else is second to homework. It’s what’s most important.

5. Stay positive – It can be hard for some to keep a positive attitude about school. However, it’s there to help you succeed in life.

Think about all the good things about going back to school. You’ll get to see all of your friends, you’re one grade ahead, you’re learning something and you’re one step closer to getting out of school.

See, it’s not so bad. So take these back to school tips and get set for school. Since it’s not going anywhere anytime soon, you might as well be prepared.
