With slightly over a month left before back to school time, it’s not too early to start thinking about back to school preparation. At the risk of sounding like the grinch who stole summer, now is the time to organize, plan, and prepare for your return to school.

Actually, some of us may be looking forward to going back to school, catching up with classmates, and returning to the predictable routine of a regular schedule. As we try to cram events, trips, and leisure activities into the remainder of the summer break, however, many of us end up rushing around at the last minute to prepare ourselves to hit the books.

A little advance preparation can make going back to school a much more relaxing and enjoyable experience. Consider how you can gather your gear, slate your schedule, and adapt your attitude to be prepared for school.

1) Gear

School provides an opportunity for interaction with our peers, so it’s understandable that we want to put our best foot forward, whether that means brand new Oxfords or an over-the-shoulder messenger bag.

Selecting the appropriate gear and wardrobe usually accounts for a large part of back to school shopping. Electronic equipment, essential apps and basic writing supplies should also be on our list, as well as any materials that are specific to our chosen program.

2) Schedule

Organize your schedule before school resumes. This includes your work schedule, if you plan to keep a part-time job, as well as family and social commitments. If you’re attending a school for the first time, visit your school campus before the school year begins to get familiar with its location and the amount of time you’ll need to travel to and from school.

Then you’ll have a clear idea of how much time will be left over for other activities. Go over your class schedule so you know exactly when you have to be at school. This will alleviate stress and help you to be relaxed your first day back.

3) Attitude

Be positive and enthusiastic about going back to school. See your schooling as an educational adventure that will add to your personal growth and improve your marketable skills. Be relaxed and focused, and make up your mind to have fun.

Although you may choose to go back to school at some point in the future to upgrade your skills, make the most of your current scholastic investment by giving your education priority in your busy life and by preparing now for back to school time!
