7 Ways to Mentally Prepare for the Start of School ...


Preparing for the start of school can be overwhelming. You’ve just had a few months of freedom and you know what’s coming next: stress, deadlines, homework, and a little bit more stress. If you find it difficult to start school again after summer break, follow this list to help mentally prepare yourself for your best year of school yet!

1. Start to Get on a Better Routine

My mom always forced me to do this when I was growing up, but I always thought that living by the notion that I wanted to enjoy my last few days of summer was a much better idea. However, now that I’m an adult and getting ready to start my last year of college, I realize just how important a good routine is. If you have to wake up super early in the morning for school, your current sleeping pattern of 1 a.m. until 11 a.m. is probably not ideal. For at least a week before, make an effort to get on the proper sleep schedule to thrive in school. (Hint: go to sleep 8 hours before your alarm is set to wake you up!)
