High School is probably the best time of our lives. Unfortunately, no one really knows it. Students just can’t wait to grow up to get away from the restrictions they’re on and the boring homework they get.
Then one day when you wake up, there are bills that need to be paid, deadlines to be met and time can’t be wasted. Only then do they realize how chill and stress-free life they had in high school.
So, while you’re at it, don’t waste the time you have and make the most out of it!
1. Set your goals
For this, you need to know your own daily habits and what motivates you. Goal setting is an art that develops over time. Sometimes it is demotivating when you fail to achieve a goal you’ve set.
Instead, try setting realistic long term goals and work backward from those to set smaller short term goals to act as stepping stones. Break your work into
doable chunks as it makes it easier to understand what you’re doing and how to do it.
2. Participate in sports
High school sports is one of the important aspects of high school. Joining sports means you’ll make new friends and the bond you form with teammates is unique, at least in my case we used to hang out during school and after school. These are the memories you’ll cherish when you finish high school.
Regular exercise improves our energy levels, the stress caused by exercise on the muscles, bones makes them strong and healthy allowing you to be more active and perform better in sports.
Some students can be very good at sports and there is nothing as sweet as doing what you’re talented in. As a cricketer, footballer, you have a passion for becoming a professional player after which you can later coach and train other high school students.
3. Group study
Instead of making someone write your essays, stories, articles, or copying someone else’s homework, you should ask your teachers, friends, or good paper writers in school to help you with your essays, articles, etc.
The best way to study is in groups because it makes learning fun, it can be very draining to spend long hours alone in a library. Working in groups makes it possible to focus on more than one concept at once since multiple people are working. The best way is to assign topics to individual group members to research and study then provide a summary for the group.
Sometimes you may be reluctant to ask a question in class. You’ll find it easier to do so in a small group and eventually in the classroom. Being in a study group with motivated classmates is often helpful to reduce test anxiety.
4. Form relationships with teachers
Make an effort to connect with your teachers, whether it’s school-related or not. They’ll be able to help you throughout your high school time and in the end, you can feel much more comfortable asking them to write a recommendation letter for your college application.
