Students, 5 Ways to Clear Your Head

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution to be more organized or focused in school this year? We’re almost 2 months into 2014, and if you’re feeling like you’re back to your scatterbrained habits, we’re here to help.   Check out our 6 tips for clearing your head and getting yourself back on track.

1. Clean out your Dorm Room, Desk, or Locker

If you want to cleanse your mind, start cleaning out your key school-centric areas. We’re talking about your desk, locker, dorm room, or even your backpack. Get rid of anything you don’t need. All of that clutter can clutter the rest of your life too.

2. Find an Organization System

For some students it’s color coding, for others folders and binders do the trick, but the bottom line is—find a new way to keep your stuff organized. Not only will your work space look better, but you’ll also save yourself time; no more digging in search of what you need.

3. Exercise Regularly

If you want to refresh your head, one of the best ways is getting in some exercise. Whether you go for a jog or take a yoga class, finding some time to separate yourself from your work and get moving will only help your focus when it’s time to get back to it.

4. Talk it Out

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stress, scatterbrained, or just plain exhausted, it’s a good idea to talk about it with your family, friends, or teachers. They’ve all been there and will have some advice for how to get back on track. Plus, it’s nice just to vent a little.

5. Sleep on it

Are you getting enough rest? Our brains process and organize information as we sleep, so that’s why you feel a little foggy when you haven’t slept much. Make an effort to stick to a sleep schedule so you’ll be your best self in class and when you’re doing homework. We promise—pulling an all-nighter will NOT help!
