You have so much to do before you head back to school. Starting school again can be overwhelming as a parent, student, or teacher. To make the transition for you or your child easier here are a few tips you can utilize.
Keeping yourself organized will help you start the year off right and take away some stress. If you are ever confused about what you need to do, a planner will provide you with the answers you need. Planners are great for keeping track of the different engagements you or other family members have, and help make sure you don’t double book yourself.
You can use a planner to set and help achieve goals, whether they are for school or outside obligations. Additionally, you can track assignments and keep meeting notes. Instead of printed student planners, you can opt for online school agenda, it is timelier and much efficient.
Sleep is extremely important to function, especially when you are young and still growing. It’s important to get at least 8 hours of sleep, so start resetting your/their sleeping schedule earlier to make sure there isn’t overlap at the beginning of the year where you aren’t well-rested. Sleep affects your overall health, so stay well-rested to reduce the chance of getting sick.
A lack of sleep leads to stress and anxiety and will make you have a bad day. As a teacher or student, you want to be as well-rested as possible to do your best. When you are sleep-deprived, you won’t be as productive, meaning it will take longer to do things like homework and you are more likely to do things incorrectly. If you are well-rested you will do better in school and have more energy for outside interests.
Leaving for school in the morning is always hectic, so creating a system to keep everything you need organized is beneficial because it will streamline your morning routine. This can also be applied to your backpack. Keeping your work organized by class is important so you don’t lose any work or forget to finish an assignment.
The first day of school will always be very nerve-racking and you will have a lot on your mind. You can make your first day easier by packing everything you need in advance, either the night before or a few days prior. Even though it is easier to procrastinate until the day of, it will be much less hectic to do this in advance.
At least the night before your first day, organize your backpack and make sure you have packed everything you need. Throw away any trash you had in the bag and put away any extra supplies you don’t need at the moment. Next, you can put some of your essential items into your bag. Aside from school supplies, make sure you have what you need for the day like hand sanitizer, a mask if it’s required, and lunch/snacks for the day. Leave your backpack by the door or somewhere you will be able to easily grab it when you leave in the morning.
It’s a terrible feeling to start off the school year stressed and unorganized. You can solve this by preparing in advance. If you want your first days of school to be successful, make sure that you follow the above tips, and all will be well.
