Summer is over and it’s time to hit the books again. School can get stressful, and stress manifests itself in many ways (one of which is difficulty to fall asleep). Here are a few tips to help you stay on track and get a good night sleep.
- Get organized. Having your room cluttered for the summer may be acceptable, after all who wants to spend the hot days cleaning. But as the school year approaches, it’s best to organize your clothes, books, and school supplies. This way you won’t be wasting time looking for stuff and you will feel more relaxed and able to get a better sleep in an organized environment.
- Do your homework right after school, or as soon as possible, but don’t wait until the clock hits 10:00PM. You will stay up at night and you won’t be able to perform as well in class. And don’t bother procrastinating — hoping you will wake up early enough to do it before school; chances are you won’t
- Don’t fall behind. Making up for missed work can put stress on you, which consequently might keep you up at night.
- Don’t bite off more than you can chew. Making a schedule and sticking to it will help you stay on track. Overwhelming yourself with extra work and responsibilities might set you back.
- Learn to manage your social life. School work takes up most of your day. So, focus on it during the week. Don’t stay up on the phone with your sweetheart or gossip with your bff till 2am. Instead make time for your friends on the weekends.
