It’s time to head back from summer vacation and start preparing for the Back To School season! Like new year resolutions, we all make back to school resolutions and hardly ever follow through – this time, let’s look at some simple tips to make school life fun and give your brain a boost for all the homework that’s going to start pouring in.

Keeping a planner

It is easy to keep track of homework, extracurriculars, band practice, tests and everything school related if you have a planner/journal. They don’t have to be boring – you can find planners in cool prints and a range of colors.

Stock up on stationery

You can never have enough stationery supplies! Notebooks, pencils, pens, post-its and paperclips. Stock up on everything and make sure you have plenty for the entire term.

Organize your backpack and study area

File everything in cabinets, color code your books and keep your backpack neat. The more organized you are at the beginning of school term; the easier tests and exams are going to be. Try not to procrastinate and finish homework, the day it is assigned.

Own the lunchbox game

Amaze your friends with creative lunchboxes and lunch ideas. Don’t take a plain boring sandwich, instead decorate it. Be an artist with your food. Jump online to find cute lunchbox ideas for school.

Find your stress busters

It is important to have a school detox every week. Find things that you love that are not school related – dancing, singing, painting or just listening to music and podcasts. Take some time out for yourself and relax. Listen to Pearl 102 FM for some relatable fun time!
