After the last semester is over, you’re feeling like you’re done, but hello there, you’re never done with school (at least, that’s what it feels like). To improve your results, sleeping schedule and social life you can better prepare for the new semester, so you won’t be starting it like the zombie you were when you were done with the last one.
1. Get Relaxed.
It’s okay to chill out after the finals week. You really need to take time for yourself and get enough rest. This way you’ll charge for the next semester and hopefully get a good sleeping schedule again. Taking time for yourself can also mean to go to the gym or just read that book you always wanted to read. Every person gets his rest in his own way, so find out your way!
2. Get Organized.
Personally, I buy my books each semester. I don’t buy them at the beginning of the school year for all the courses. So find out what books you need for this semester and prepare your stuff. Make a new folder on your laptop or buy new notebooks with matching pencils.
If you decorate your notebooks yourself, I can tell you you want to use them! So get off your butt and search for the creative one in yourself. Also the new folder on your laptop can make you feel organized and ready to start!
Are you interested in how I decorate my own notebooks? I’m thinking about a DIY for decorating notebooks for the new semester. Leave your opinion in the comments!
At my school we get to see instructions on a webpage. This way we know what is waiting for us in the new semester and get prepared for it. Write down the dates of your next finals week and make a schedule for your lessons, homework and nights off. This way you’ll know what to expect and you can figure out how to deal with that.
If you have a busy schedule, you really need to plan those nights off. Otherwise, it will never.
4. Start calm.
Don’t rush into the new semester because you’re dying to learn new stuff! Maybe you think your study is really interesting, you don’t be too hard on yourself. Just be calm and let yourself get used to the new courses and maybe new teachers. Write down the important stuff and dates, but don’t rush into it too fast. Calm down! At the end of the semester, it will all fall into it’s place and it’ll be clear what to study for the finals week.
