School is about to start again for most college students here in the Philippines and I know that it can be a bit of a bummer knowing that going back to school can ultimately kill your summer-lifestyle. For this, we have compiled a list of tips that you can consider in order to go smoothly and flawless with the resumption of classes
Train your sleeping habits
During the summer, most students probably stay awake at night and sleep in the morning. This is because they want to enjoy their summer by doing a lot of things all throughout the night. The first thing you want to go back to is your natural sleeping cycle where you hit the sheets at night and wake up at dawn.
Exercise your thinking muscles
Yes – the summer can ultimately ruin a student’s intuition of suddenly answering, or even thinking because during summer, there are days where you lay in bed all day, you watch television for almost half a day, and you even forget or neglect your physical training; this can be a bit of a shock to your system when classes resume.
Before going on with the real deal, try and flex your brain muscles a little bit by solving crossword puzzles, solving brainteasers, and other different ways on how you can ensure that your brain is not rotting.
Set a goal for yourself
Every semester is different and therefore, you should be ready and aware of the unfamiliar routes and paths where college can take you. Set a goal this semester; write it down in order for you to keep track of what you want to achieve in months. Work for that goal and do whatever you can to attain it.
This attitude is a great practice of goal-setting and hard work and this can be very much effective in the real world once you exit college.
Manage your time wisely
If you have plans on having a goal reached this time, then you better manage your time in the best ways possible. Try to create a schedule for yourself in order to let loose of the pressure of academics. Remember that focusing too much on academics can be mentally and psychologically draining so do not forget to have fun and relax every now and then.
This is where managing your time properly comes handy; have proper time management and consider every aspect that revolves in your life as a young adult.
Review money-saving tips
One of the most important things you ought to remember is that every year you go up the ladder, the more expensive the things will cost so you need to plan and take immediate action of your costs and your budget to help you get through financial hardships.
This can also be a great practice once you graduate and get a job. Being financially literate is not actually taught in school so what can you do? Read books and articles about it; practice it so you won’t have a hard time adjusting.
The feeling of going back to school is similar to the feeling of going to a familiar place where you nurture and learn to be the better and mature person you are to become. These are the main tips I can give to Filipino students who will face another chapter of their lives and I hope that I have been a big help.
