It's that time again. When the summer is dwindling down to an end and we already have school in the back of our minds, well some of us. Going back to school can be stressful if you aren't fully prepared. I have some great back to school tips so you can feel ready to tackle the new school year.

Establish a simple, helpful routine. If you are a slow morning person, wake up a half hour earlier to give yourself more time. Also, if you squeeze in a quick breakfast you will be ready for the day's tasks. If you can't wake up any earlier than you already have to, lay out clothes and pack a lunch the night before to save you some time.

Be organized. You've heard it before that organization is the key to success. Once you get everything in order, you will feel so much better. Set up a clean, organized, homework/study station. Your brain will be able to focus when there is no clutter surrounding you. Also, labeling folders and binders will certainly keep you from losing important papers.

Let's make this school year a good one, folks!
