How to Survive School After Winter Break!

Are you confused and lost at school after the long winter break? Do you need help? Without a doubt, two weeks away from school can result in students’ difficulty in remembering what you were learning before. Here are some helpful tips to get you you back into that school vibe.


1.Bring as much of your bed to school as possible

Almost everyone probably slept in till 12 p.m. every day during the break, including yourself and you know it. Waking up at 6 a.m. can be a hard task after two weeks of slumbering bliss. What you can do is just show up at school in your most comfortable pajamas. Do not care about people judging you, because the chances are, they are probably wishing they could be you. Try bringing your favorite blanket with you to school to keep you extra cozy, or even try your favorite slippers–Kaela Braseny (11) even states “On the first week back I wore my furry leopard print slippers to make me last the day at school.”


2.Decide when you have to wake up

Most students need at least 9 to 10 hours of sleep per night in order to be productive, according to child development information. It can be hard to determine what time you should go to bed if you do not know what time you are you going to wake up. To begin, you need to create a wake up schedule. Try making at least three alarms. The first one can be an alert that you are going to have to wake up in 30 minutes. Then the second can be the actual time you should be getting up. Lastly, the last alarm should notify you that if you don’t get up you are going to be late. Eventually, you won’t even need the third alarm or maybe not even the second one either.


3.Prepare yourself the night before

When waking up in the morning for school after two weeks of no school; your brain can be very hectic. This is why you get all of your stuff ready the night before when your brain is not chaotic. According to Napo-Gpc, you should “lay out clothes the night before.” This can be very helpful in the morning because all you have to do is put your outfit on. Devonna Qumsieh (11) voices, “I’ve been going through my back pack every night so I don’t stress about it in the morning.” Clearly, this can be useful so you just grab your backpack and you are out the door.
