Every student’s dream is for the semester break to come soon. Of course everything is short lived and next thing you know, it’s already time for the new semester.
So what can you do to prepare for the next semester while still enjoying your break? Let’s find out:
1. Practice your sleeping habits.
Sure it’s bliss to wake up late without having to panic. Enjoy a few days of those when starting. Once you’re halfway through with your break, you need to practice your sleeping habits.
During weekdays, go to sleep before midnight and set your alarm clock for 6am. This allows you at least six hours of sleep and about fifteen minutes to get out of bed. During the weekends, give yourself the break and enjoy a few more hours of slumber.
2. Get organized.
Get yourself a student planner if you haven’t already and start writing down your deadlines, first topics to study about and any additional things you’ll need to be reminded of. Make sure your personal computer, smart phone and all your gadgets are synced with this information. This allows you to know what you need to accomplish, wherever you are.
Moreover, it prepares you in conditioning your mind for the semester to come.
3. Eat healthy.
This could be a long shot for starters but eating healthy keeps you mentally healthy. Now that you’re on break and you can do anything you want, you still need self discipline. When you eat bad food every time, your body feels bad and your mind then feels even worse.
You won’t be able to have a clear head if you’re not putting the right food into your body. So if you want to be fully prepared, then ensure a healthy diet.
4. Do advanced reading.
If your school releases book lists early, then go ahead and get a copy of your books to do some advanced reading. You can do this even just two or a day before the next semester. This gets you psyched and well prepared for the upcoming lessons.
