When fall rolls around and the leaves start to turn, schools open their doors and it can be easy to sink into back-to-school blues. When your days get a little more textbook-filled, try a few of these things to keep your brain fresh and keep the blues at bay.

How to make going back to school easier

Going from summer freedom to a school schedule can be a shock to the system. When you start feeling glum, try a few of these ideas:

  • Go for a walk or go to the gym: Sometimes sitting around inside can be its own kind of exhausting. When you’re stuck in a rut, head out for a walk or get some exercise. It’ll help clear your head and get you focused. Plus, you’ll sleep better and can tell anyone who will listen that you went to the gym today.
  • Make a to-do list: Get those homework assignments and to-dos out of your head and on paper. That way you can check them off, keep track of what’s left to do, and clear your head. There’s nothing as annoying as stressing out because you can’t get things straight and you’re worried you’ll forget something.
  • Take a nap: If you’ve been up to late or are just outright tired, head to bed. Going to bed early is best, but sometimes you have to start small—just make sure you don’t take too many naps or take them too late, because it’ll make it harder to sleep at night.
  • Clean up and get organized: A clean space and a good system can help even the most daunting assignments conquerable. Get your desk in order and make yourself a welcoming space, then tackle your to-dos again with renewed gusto.
  • Set some goals: Think about something other than school work—are you going to eat better this year? Join a team or a club? Go to bed on time, or maybe perfect your ping-pong technique? Set yourself to it, and get it done.
