How to Ease Back-to-School Nerves

Make the Most Out of Your Break

The first thing you need to do to get ready to get back to school is make the most out of your break. This is because, in some instances, students feel nervous and reluctant to return to school because they don't feel they've taken advantage of their time off. That's why it's recommended that you enjoy your summer vacation (travel, take time to learn new things - an instrument, a language - make plans with friends, and more). After you've spent all of that energy and have taken the opportunities, you'll be ready to head back

Prepare What You'll Need for School

Needless to say, the feeling of being unprepared and having things out of our control can be anxiety-inducing. For that reason, you should start preparing what you'll need for school weeks before your return. Making sure that you have all of the supplies you'll need, packing your backpack for the big day, choosing and preparing your clothing for school, and more, will help you take control of the situation in a stress-free way.

Go Over Your Notes

Some students become nervous about returning to school because they think they're not ready to face the academic challenges coming their way. If you can relate to that statement, then it's highly suggested that you take some time to go over your notes before your day back. Simply reading them a couple of times over will allow you to refresh the lessons you learned during the previous school term. Doing so will allow you to build on the knowledge you already have during the new school term.

Turn to Others for Help

Sometimes, the feelings of anxiety will be so overwhelming that will start affecting every aspect of your life. If that's the case, it's recommended that you talk to others. Turn to your friends and family and let them know what you're feeling. Likewise, let them know if there's a specific reason why you don't want to go back. If you deem it necessary, you can even turn to a mental health professional. They can help you find the source of your anxiety, as well as share tips on how to deal with it effectively.

Try a Few Relaxation Techniques

Even when you have anxiety, there are moments in which you feel more anxious than others. For those times in which your nerves are going through the roof, you should learn and try relaxation techniques to channel all of that nervous energy into something productive and ease you up. To that end, you can try breathing exercises, meditation, doing yoga, engaging in a physical activity, playing with your pet, and more. As mentioned above, it may also be a good idea to ask your therapist for other techniques to deal with your anxiety.

Keep a Positive Attitude

Last but certainly not least, try to keep a positive attitude. This can be hard to do, especially when dealing with anxious feelings that cloud your mind. However, it's important that you remember that your negative thoughts or expectations about a situation don't make them true. Whenever those nerves come knocking at your door, focus on the good things about returning to school (seeing your classmates and teachers, learning new things, etc.). More so than anything else, however, trust in yourself. Have confidence in your knowledge and in your abilities to face any challenge that comes your way.
