Back to School – 5 Ways to Get Yourself Ready

As we say goodbye to the lazy days of summer, it’s time to turn our attention to the new school year.

Whether you’re a high school student or you’re now in college, make the often harsh transition a lot easier with these five practical tips.

1. Reset Your Daily Schedule

Two of the biggest keys to a student’s success are getting enough sleep and sticking to a consistent routine.

So now it’s time to slowly move bedtimes and wake up times back to what they should be during the school year.

You can do this gradually over one or two weeks. If meal times or other regular routines have changed over the summer vacation, reset those as well.

5. Renew Your Intention and Get Started!
