Pre-Pack Your Backpack
Once you’ve purchased supplies, you should start putting them in your backpack. Thinking ahead is what sets winners apart from the rest of the pack and you’re a winner.
Make sure you have a space for everything, including your lunch. If you’re a girl, inaddition to your supplies you might also want to carry a small makeup bag with a brush/comb, toothbrush & gloss.
If you take your time putting together your backpack you won’t miss anything and the first day of school you can sleep an extra ten minutes knowing that you’ve got everything ready to go!
Plus, if you wait till the night before school starts you are bound to forget something and you really want to avoid this!
Create An After School Work Schedule
Keeping a schedule is one of those things I cannot stress enough. If you know you’re gonna have soccer practice everyday after school for an hour, you need to work in time to finish homework and study.
If you make a schedule for yourself ahead of time, and you stick with it you’ll be able to fit in the important things like watching TV & relaxing, instead of panicking that there’s not enough time.
Make a bullet point list and stick to it:
- 2:30 – 3:30pm Sports Practice
- 4:00 – 5:00pm Homework
- 5:00 – 6:00pm Study
- 6:00 – 8:00pm Freetime!
If you have a schedule and you stick to it, you’ll never wakeup in a panic before school cause you’ll already have taken care of everything!
