Is it me or did the summer (no pun intended) fly by for my fellow owls?
Even though our summer break has come to an end, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t feel relaxed about approaching the fall semester.
Here are some tips and reminders to keep you on your A game as we begin classes:
Make Plans with Your Planner!
My planner is my best friend throughout the semester. It comes with me everywhere I go and I keep a backup copy in my phone calendar. Not only can you keep track of your class schedule and assignment due dates, but a planner can help you find free spaces in your schedule for some downtime. Looking to check out a new restaurant or take a spinning class? Keeping a planner can help you have fun and stay on track.
Make sure you have a list of dates that are important for your unique schedule. Are you a member of any student organizations or looking to become a member? Review social media accounts and check your email to find out when your favorite organization will be starting up again. Are you unsure about one of your classes? Find out when you can meet with an advisor and be sure to stay within the add/drop period should you need to make any adjustments.
Make Time for You
As students we often forget to take time to wind down. Some of us not only balance a full or part-time credit load but we work, intern and volunteer. It can be hard to take a break when you have a mile-long to-do list staring at you behind your third cup of coffee- but it’s worth it. Making time to do what you love and rest when needed can help you accomplish everything on your to-do list faster. This could be as simple as catching up on a TV show or exercising. Making time for yourself helps you to be your BEST self.
It can be daunting to come back to school while the summer breeze is calling you back to the beach. But, keeping up with these tips can help make the adjustment a little easier and more enjoyable.
