The summer holidays can provide a much-needed break from classes and school work. While some of us can switch from holiday rhythm to reading books and producing papers without problems, others may have a difficult time concentrating or getting back into the swing of school after a 5-week break.
Don’t stress – take your time.
Don’t rush into anything. Try to bring balance into your life. Try combining intellectual and physical work. Socialise with your friends after class, play sports, have a good night’s sleep, or maybe catchup with your favorite streaming series.
Try to do something new
We all have lots of interests and lots to offer. Try to help someone. Put your hand up to help or and ask for help. Remember, there is lots to learn from others. So you have numerous different opportunities, so go for it.
Draw line on a piece of paper and write down your short-term goals on left and long-term goals on the right column. By following small steps, you can do a much better job achieving greater results.
Getting used to the rhythm of school is never easy, especially if you’ve had a very big change of pace during summer holiday.
Everyone struggles with adjustments like this, even adults! Ask your parents and they would tell you how they may have a hard time going back to work after a few days of holiday break.
Getting back into the daily grind after a long break won’t be easy but follow this formula and it will be significantly easier— take your time, set goals, do something new, and be kind to yourself!
With some determination, you will be surprised at how far you can go.
