Initially it can be over whelming setting out new goals for the academic year. Here are a few tips on how to plan
1. Write down your goals
2. Break down your main goals into smaller tasks
3. Set a schedule for doing the tasks
3. Start a sleep schedule
One of the most important things you’re going to need to be is energized is rest. You can set reminders on your phone to remind you each evening. You may find that your body gets accustomed to the new sleep schedule, and you will start to feel more energized.
4. Streamline your day-to-day tasks
A lot of your daily task can take up mental energy- deciding what to wear, what to eat etc. Have your wardrobe planned for the week along with a meal plan for your lunch. Find ways to make those tasks simpler and quicker.
