So for me I've just recently gone back to school a week ago and others have gone back even earlier and the rest will be going back in the coming weeks. School can understandably be hard for some people so I thought I'd put together some tips to make your school year as stress free as possible.
#2 Have Breakfast
I understand not everyone can eat a full breakfast in the morning but at least making some eggs or a bagel when you can will make sure you can focus on your schoolwork and not on how much time is left before lunch.
#3 Keep Organized
As easy as it is to shove your papers into a folder and forget about them, keeping your work as organized as possible is incredibly beneficial. I've even had classes where teachers would grade based on you having all of your notes neatly organized, so it's definitely worth taking the time to make sure everything is together.
#4 Take Notes
Taking notes whenever you can is generally helpful in the long run. Writing what you're being taught can help solidify the information in your head, and you have a physical copy so you can look back on lessons before tests and quizzes. It's important to make sure you're writing notes that are easy to understand though. So make sure you're formatting your notes with key topics and putting extra information beneath. It also helps to highlight anything you are told will be on the test.
#5 Get Help
Before I started online school I was in public school doing all honors courses and while some classes I was okay in, things like Math were incredibly difficult for me to learn. I would get in a spiral of thinking I could figure things out myself, doing poorly on work, and then continuing the cycle. Teachers genuinely want to help you succeed so be sure to reach out to them if you're having issues with lessons. Also be honest with those around you if you're overall having a hard time so that your issues are made aware to everyone and you can get the help you need.
I know how stressful a new school year can be, so just try not to worry to much over the tiny things and just focus on getting through another year. Hopefully you all do amazing this year and achieve everything you aim to do academically this year.
