Feel like you have become lazy? Feel like you could have read books more often or learned a craft, but just weren’t able to? That is completely fine! After all, you are trying to live through the melancholic tone this pandemic has set across the globe. Well, here is some good news. Schools are finally planning on opening up now. So you can go back to feeling pumped every morning for school, getting dressed, and attending classes. But there must be tons of life lessons that you learned during this quarantine. Let us use them to get you ready for back to school.
Here are some tips
1. Try to become a morning person
Staying up late in the night to watch movies and playing games probably has become an everyday routine. Try to quit this habit. Getting up in the morning for students is imperative. And besides, nothing is better than the feeling of rejuvenation and productivity you get by waking up in the morning and studying.
2. Plan your wardrobe early
Try to avoid going out for shopping as much as you can or try online shopping. You can look for some old clothes that fit you well and still are fashionable. Just the idea of getting dressed for school will make you feel jubilant.
3. Slightly alter your plan for success
The plans you made for school last year might not work for you this year. Be open to new ideas and making adjustments. The pandemic has changed many things, try not to dwell upon it, and use the alternatives available.
4. Say YES to Online Learning
The experience through online education might not pan out to be as good as studying in the actual school building, but it is the best interactive learning form with a distance available. Therefore, try to be open to the idea of an online school. After all, it is only temporary.
5. Set up a study place in your home
You might find it helpful to have a desk stuffed with supplies in a quiet place. This way, you have somewhere peaceful and well-stocked to work. Set up a study station long before school starts.
6. Jumpstart your knowledge
Before going to any kind of school (online or physical), make yourself privy to a little information about your subject. If you’re a student about to enter into college first-year, consider buying a phrasebook or dictionary and doing a little studying before the course begins. You may also find it helpful to brush up on previous knowledge that may help you in this year’s classes.
7. Make it a point to keep an alcoholic based sanitizer with you
If you do get the opportunity to go to school, make sure you keep a sanitizer with you at all costs! Meeting your friends after a long time and attending classes again might give a feeling of a normalized world. Therefore try not to forget about your health. Proper sanitation needs to be at the top of your priority list.
Embrace the change, keep yourself safe, and hope for the best. Tough times never last, but tough people do!
