School Survival Tips

So it's that time of year again, the summer staples go away, and the uniform comes out. Back to school posters everywhere. Yes. You know it, we're going back to school.

So through my many many years of being in school, I've gathered a few tips up my sleeve to see me through a typical day, and I thought I'd share them with you. Whether you're starting secondary school, finishing it or if you're juts somewhere in between, school can be tough.

1. Organize yourself effectively. Make sure you set aside time for work as well as studying. Make a diary, tidy up your room. Just have a neat and clean work space.

2. Surround yourself with positivity. This means in school as well as outside school. Don't be in a circle of friends that make you uncomfortable. Make sure you're happy.

3. Take a deep breath every now and then. If you're feeling anxious or panicked just stop, even step out of the classroom and take a moment to calm yourself. 

4. Don't be overwhelmed by studying. At school you will have several different teachers who think their subject overrules the other. You'll feel like you have to please everyone. Hang in there, talk to a best friend, a teacher, parent or even a councillor if you're feeling like the workload is too much.

5. Most importantly, be yourself! Whether you're into art, sport, science, maths, music, dance drama every school has something for you. I know sometimes you can feel a little lost as a small fish in a big pond, and that everyone is talented but trust me there is something in you that is fabulous, you just have to keep searching.

So guys hope you liked that wordy blogpost, it's the first of my mini-series 'AdvicewithNaomi'. See you soon! Enjoy school!
