Everyone looks forward to spring break, whether they have a trip planned or they’re just headed home for the week. It’s nice to look forward to something and it’s a good way to motivate yourself to keep working hard on your schoolwork. Everyone needs the week break we get in early March but no one wants to return to our regular lives and normal routines.
A good way to get back into your normal swing of things is to be on top of the work you have due the first two weeks back. Make sure you’ve written down every deadline for every assignment, paper, and test and that you get a jumpstart on working on those as soon as you get back to school from break. No one wants to do this but if you do, it will be a smoother transition back into your school life and hectic schedule.
Another way to get back into your routine is to keep making to-do lists so you don’t forget what you have due each day and week. This will also help you figure out what you can put off doing and what you need to get done by the end of that specific day. This way, whether you’re still reminiscing about spring break and wishing you were back there instead of in the library, you can still daydream while getting your assignments done.
Nobody likes the transition from break to work, but everybody has to do it anyways. If you remember to get a jumpstart on all of your work due in the first couple of weeks back it’s sure to help you back into normal life. Also, if you remember to keep a checklist of what you need to get done each day it will help with what you have to do every day and what you can do every day. Good luck getting back into your routine!
