The long-awaited summer vacation seems to have vanished in a second, and here comes the first bell that signalized the start of the school routine. Some scholars are excited to fall back into the pleasant process of learning something new and seeing their friends everyday, but most students would be happy to avoid school a little bit longer. Why does it happen? In order to stop dreading the inevitable, we need to prepare ourselves for the start of the new semester.
Perhaps the most beloved activity of kids who are bound to go to school is shopping for supplies. There is certain satisfaction in buying different colored pens and pencils, albums, notebooks, and pencil cases.
Perhaps, it is the excitement to use new things, or the desire to fulfill your potential with hard work that these supplies simply symbolize. Even though you can indulge in the shopping every year, sometimes it is better to dig up your old supplies that you have not finished yet. If you simply do not like them anymore, consider donating to the kids who do not have the money to spare.
Not everyone is comfortable going back to school because it is a highly social environment. At school, you are judged by teachers and peers, and dealing with it is not desirable for some. Especially if you are heading to a new school or a new college, you are bound to stress over how others will see you and if they will like the new you. In order to prepare for such stress, remember to gain confidence in yourself.
Think up a few things that you really like about yourself and keep them close to your heart. You are a likable person, and anyone would be lucky to be your friend. Just smile and try to enjoy your life, and others will immediately look up to you.
Get Rid of Bad Habits
Summer is usually the time when we relax in all aspects of our lives. Not only we stop getting up awfully early, but often we start eating at all sorts of hours of the day, get to bed only on the next day and forget what “exercise” meant. In order to prepare for school, for example, try to fix your routine step by step.
Get up a little earlier each day. Not to mention that without constant activity for our brains, our reactions may turn out slower than before. So do not forget to pick up a book or two during the break, solve some puzzles or even have a deep conversation with someone. Getting rid of bad habits will definitely make you more psychologically prepared for school.
