Coming back after a long time off can be difficult for even the most focused of students. Here are the top five tips to get you back in the zone and ready for the semester ahead….
Say goodbye to that awful sleeping pattern
Nothing says ‘no responsibilities’ quite like being able to fall asleep at 2am and wake up 12 hours later. So, to make sure you’re in the best possible mindset for the day ahead, try hitting the hay a little bit earlier and setting a morning alarm – even if you don’t need to get up!
Get ahead of the game
With your timetable confirmed, familiarise yourself with your new schedule and try and get ahead of things by getting those pre-readings done so you are organised before each of your new sessions.
Set some targets
Nothing quite says personal achievement like hitting those mini-targets you set yourself. Start small and see how you go.
Find a balance
With all the above tips aside, remember to find that balance between studying and downtime. University is stressful as it, you work hard for your degrees and you’re only there once so ENJOY IT.
