Tips for returning to school after the summer break …

Going back to school can be hard for anyone. Especially after a long 6 weeks of lie-ins and family day trips, it can be hard to get back into a routine ready to learn.

Below are some tips to make going back to school that little bit easier:

1. Be prepared!

Being organised and getting everything you need ready the night before can make the mornings much easier. You’re less likely to forget anything and it may even mean you get a little longer in bed!

2. Get a good night’s sleep.

There are numerous studies that show poor sleep can have negative affects on concentration. So, having a good night’s sleep is vital and makes you feel much more ready for the day. How many hours per night do you get?

3. Have a good breakfast.

Starting the day with a well balanced and nutritious breakfast helps to boost your energy levels throughout the day which in turn keeps your concentration going for every lesson. What’s your favourite thing to make for breakfast?

4. Take one day at a time!

Planning is key! You may start to feel overwhelmed by the workload and homework but by prioritising each task you are more likely to get everything done and have more time to do what you enjoy doing.

5. Talk to someone.

If you are struggling with school, talking to someone you trust can always help. A problem shared is a problem halved! Our Harrington Bates policies include occupational health and wellbeing cover so there is someone around to support you 24-7!
