With a month until classes commence, it’s time to begin mentally preparing for busy weeks of classes, meetings, and more. While you enjoy your last few weeks of freedom, there are a few ways you can prep for the new school year.
- Buy an agenda. Kick
start your school year off productively by making sure you stay organized and on top of your schedule.
- Plan a budget. Whether you need school supplies, clothes, or apartment/dorm goods, make sure you strategically plan your budget to get the most cost-friendly deals. Take advantage of grocery store school supplies, student discounts, and coupons.
- Print out your schedule. Having copies of your schedule can come in handy when you can’t remember when and where to go on the first day of classes.
- Mentally prepare for the stress. Acknowledge your stress levels from previous semesters and figure out ways to avoid mid-semester meltdowns. Through exercise, yoga, meditation, or hobbies, learn mechanisms to manage your stress for a smooth semester.
- Set goals. Setting a few good intentions for the semester can help you feel focused and grounded. Goals act as ins
piration for hard work and success.
