Hello, lovlies! It’s your favorite doll here to give you some amazing back-to-school advice. Whether you’re going into high school, middle school, or you’re still in elementary, read on to learn everything you need to know for tackling the upcoming school year. Why do I sound like a YouTube video?!?!
Tip #1: Approach school with a good attitude. Having a bad attitude, or being in a negative mindset, will definitely NOT help you. Imagine the best – all the new friends you’ll make, the new stuff you’ll learn, etc., instead.
Tip #2: Smile. Smile at everyone. The nice kids, the mean kids, the good teachers, the cranky teachers. Even smiling when nothing’s funny will dramatically improve your attitude! Try it. You’d be surprised.
Tip #3: Challenge yourself. Try a new club, take an advanced/Honors class (if you qualify, of course). Do a team sport, like tennis, XC running, or skiing. Or just challenge yourself to get A’s on your tests or meet a new person every day.
Tip #4: Power through your homework. Sometimes, you’ll feel really bogged down with homework – especially if you get something to do from EVERY. SINGLE. TEACHER. When you get home, eat a nourishing snack and take a 15-minute walk before tackling your homework. Every thirty minutes, take a five-minute break and do something productive – switch the laundry, speed-clean the coffee table, or make your bed. Then get right back to work.
Tip #5: Breathe. This tip is great when you’re taking a big test. Don’t freak out. Visualize yourself in your happy place, and take a few deep breaths. You’ve got this!
I hope my tips help you this year!
Are you excited for school? What is your favorite class? When do you start (if you haven’t already)?
