4 Tips for Back-To-School Success
If you grew up in a house like mine, back to school was a big deal. You got a new outfit, new school gear, you practice your new routine for a few days. Turns out, those are actually really practical tips for starting off your school year successfully. It wasn’t just my mom trying to ruin the end of summer. So here are some ideas for how to have the best first day of school, and set yourself up for a year of success.
1. Get your supplies early
Online shopping has made this a breeze, so there is a no excuse not to get your supplies early. As soon as your school has given you the list of what you need for the upcoming year, logon and shop from online shops in Dubai for the best selection and pricing. Having your supplies shipped to your door takes the stress out of back-to-school shopping. You can avoid all the long lines, and the endless hours driving from store to store looking.
2. Shop for a new outfit
Having a killer first day of school look is essential to starting off the year confidently. Look for something that really makes you feel good, and you will be sure to make a great first impression on everyone in the new year. Feeling good also helps you have the confidence to speak up, meet new people, and relax. Treating yourself to some new clothes also helps with the mental wrap-up of summer. It’s not going to be bathing suits and shorts anymore.
3. Plan out your lunches
Make sure that one of the supplies you’ve purchased is a great lunchbox, like the ones you can order online. Next, plan out your lunches. Make sure you are including a food from each dietary food group, and that everything has a place in your lunchbox. This will ensure that you are getting a nutritious meal that won’t make you sleeping in the afternoon. You also avoid the stress in your morning routine of raiding the pantry for food, or not having something you needed.
4. Go to bed early 2-3 days before
Part of your new routine probably means adjusting to waking up earlier too. Your body has gotten used to late nights and sleeping in. Start working your body back into school day rhythm by waking up on time for school 2-3 days before the actual first day of school. This will also make you want to go to bed earlier, too. And don’t hit the snooze! Going back to sleep after waking up to an alarm is actually even more confusing for our bodies. The good news is, doing this prep a few days ahead of your actual first day makes the first day much easily, and you won’t be as sleepy in the afternoon.
Going back to school can be stressful, but it can be a lot of fun. Use these tips, get your back to school supplies online and you’ll have a stress-free beginning of the year, with lots of success to come.
