1. Get a nice long sleep.

After a fun break where you were probably staying up late, it’s important that you reset your clock by going to sleep early once school starts. Besides the obvious reasoning that you’ll be more on top of your game, this is also important in ensuring you aren’t an emotional mess when it comes time to study on a deadline. You'll be much more clear-headed and on top of your game for school work.


2. Make a long term to-do list

Before school starts, I suggest making a to-do list for each class to get yourself back into the mindset of school. This could be very vague such as:


Chemistry notes and vocab

History practice tests

Computer daily lessons


This way as you get all the usual assignments thrown at you during the week after break, it won't be as overwhelming, since you will have this list as the guiding force.


3. Give yourself relaxation time

It would be very hard to just jump right into full-out study mode. Set aside a good 30 minutes just to relax and have leisure time. This way you are giving yourself a smooth transition from break to school, thus ensuring a much more productive time studying.
