Get a Good Night’s Sleep – Make sure you’re getting a full night’s sleep as you make the transition. It’ll be harder if you’re tired and cranky. The National Sleep Foundations suggests that teenagers get 9 ¼ hours of sleep each night to function best. Also, remember to turn off those electronic devices at least two hours prior to bedtime.
Eat a good breakfast – Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Making sure your body is fueled will keep you energized and help with concentration throughout the day. It’s best to skip sugary foods and opt instead for nutritious and filling meals.
Plan Out Your Day – Your routine may be easier to get into again if you plan out your day. Develop a list of things you need to do in addition to school – after school practice, clubs, or work. This will help you get more organized.
Make Your Own New Year Resolutions – You may notice your parents and other adults around you making New Year resolutions. While the topics may be different, there’s nothing wrong with setting specific, realistic goals for yourself as well. It’s good to get in the habit and it will leave you with a great sense of satisfaction when you accomplish your goals.
