After a fun and uplifting holiday and break from school, how do you get back on track and be in the zone? What steps should you take to finish the school tasks you’ve set aside? How do you put your plans into action with all the mounting optimism and energy inside you?
If you have these questions in mind, Kumon Philippines has five tips that will help you get back on track and start off on the right foot.
1. Begin with the right mindset
The beginning of every year gives us a renewed sense of optimism. Take this positivity as you begin with your schoolwork. Even if academic responsibilities have piled during the holiday, don’t be too hard on yourself. Remember that we all need breaks to regain energy and find inspiration. As you tackle your homework, remember that what matters now is your dedication and enthusiasm to get things done, progress, and learn.
2. Get back on your routine
Perhaps you couldn’t follow your regular daily routine during the holiday break for you spent more time reconnecting with friends, bonding with the family, and doing more passion projects.
Don’t worry! Since New Year is like a clean slate, get back on your routine or create a better one for 2022. Start off by sleeping on time, eating healthy meals, and allotting around 15-30 minutes of Kumon time.
3. Optimize your study area
Your study area might still have gifts and other trinkets from the long holiday break. Now is a great time to declutter, organize, and set up a study area that will boost your productivity and focus.
If you have Kumon online classes, make sure your mobile phone holder, gadgets, and pencils are ready. Your worksheet for the day—and, if needed, your previous and upcoming homework—are within reach.
4. Create a list
When tasks and pending school work are one too many, enable your “Can Do” attitude! Keep your head in the game by creating a list that will guide you so you won’t feel overwhelmed.
To create an effective list, list down every task that needs to be done. After this, narrow down what needs to be done first and what can be done later. For complex tasks, you may break them down so you can tackle them in small steps. Don’t forget to tick off each task once done to keep track.
5. Start with ease
Pat yourself on the back if you’re now more confident to take on bigger challenges. But, don’t push yourself too hard to tackle big responsibilities or pressure yourself to perfect advanced topics. You can always start with smaller tasks. In your Kumon study, carefully study each item and each example you come across. With daily and consistent Kumon study, you will steadily progress, study advanced topics, and reach great heights!
