Back to School: After Holidays

It is always very difficult to go back to school after a long break. Most of the times, the breaks are always too short no matter the length of the duration. But, the school has to open one day and you have to go back to school.

Going back to school needs physical and emotional preparation, as our mind and body get into the comfort zone. Thus, entering school the first day becomes all the more difficult.

Hence, below are few ways to prepare yourself for going back to school:

Unplug:

During the vacations, we start to watch TV or stay on our phones or even play video games late in the night. We are able to do this because at that time we know that the next day we can sleep till late. But, during school days it is not possible. Hence, it is important to unplug yourself from these devices before the school starts and try and get back to your sleeping schedule.

Create a Schedule:

Holidays are mostly chaotic; hence we do not have any schedules. Thus, from our sleep cycle to our eating habits, everything becomes disrupted. Hence, it becomes difficult when you actually get back to school as your schedule is disrupted. So, it is important to create a schedule for yourself and your body to adapt to a school day.

Plan Ahead:

School can start with stressful situations; these can range from arranging yourself and your homework or even meeting a teacher you don’t like. These situations usually occur when we are not prepared, both physically and emotionally. Hence, planning ahead saves us from entering these situations. Planning for the opening of the school will make you feel organized and will give you the confidence of being able to control the situation.

Start Reading Again:

Reading is always a good habit, but during vacations, we only have time to do so many things. But, when the school starts reading about different subjects becomes mandatory. It becomes difficult to start your habit again, and hence you are not able to get hold of what is going on in the class. Thus, it is always advisable that you start reading before the school starts. Hence, you will be able to catch up to the class’s pace.

Get Back to Doing Homework:

Summer holidays are full of fun and also homework. But, we spend most of our time having fun. So, we keep on procrastinating on our homework. Hence, it is important to catch up on our homework also. One of the main reason students are stressed because they haven’t completed their homework. Also, during the break children break away from the habit of doing homework. Hence, it is important that before school starts studying and completing your homework gets in the schedule. Thus, making the adjustment in your school easier.

Going back to school can be fun if you try and focus on the positives of school. It might seem daunting at first, but soon we settle down and get back to routine. The above tips can help you ease up the transition process.
