College students are all back to school, and if you are anything like me, you are already beginning to dread the stress that piles on after syllabus week. Between a new schedule, getting back to work, or even new roommates, the amount of change is ridiculous. Here are some tips to start the semester strong, plus a giveaway to make the start of the semester even better!
Semester Survival Guide:
Use a Planner
Using a planner can only be a benefit to having success with the semester survival guide. Especially when you have a job or a blog like me, a planner helps keep everything straight. More importantly, it is out of your head so you don’t have to stress about forgetting something. I go through my syllabus and write down all of my big due dates for the semester so I don’t forget and don’t have to worry about going back and checking the syllabus every night.
Order your Books from Chegg
Or another discounted website. Don’t buy your book from the bookstore if you can help it. The money you save on books can go towards Chipotle at the end of the week, so why not?
Workout once a week
I work out 5 times a week, but if you aren’t the workout type, then just start with once! Working out makes you feel better by releasing chemicals in your brain, so stop by a yoga session or climb the rock wall in your gym.
Give yourself a Break
It’s okay to get stressed, emotional, or cry. Change is rough and sometimes it hits you at the worst of times. Be easy on yourself and allow time to get used to the new semester and all it entails. Besides, if you want the semester survival guide to be a success, you need to have fun! Go out to dinner with some friends or get coffee with someone you haven’t seen in a while.
