Write it down

One way to stay organized is to write down what needs to be organized!

Confused yet?

When you write down what supplies you need, what thoughts need to be expressed, or what goals need to be met, then keeping organized will be easy!

Label it

Keeping your supplies labeled makes it much easier to find, or to remember what its purpose is.

Labeling your thoughts helps to manage your emotions. How can we label our thoughts? By deciding its function. It is to judge? to plan? to make someone laugh?

Labeling your goals makes it easier to see whether or not you can achieve it or not!

Categorize it

So what is the difference between labeling and categorizing things or ideas?

In labeling we recognize its purpose or function. In categorizing we create groups we can label.

Categorizing just makes everything look nicer!

Your supplies such as pens, or papers, or color co-ordinated file folders will be easier to find!

Categorizing your thoughts as positive or negative will help you see how to get rid of the negative thoughts!

Categorizing your goals as now or later will help you see how easy it is to meet your goals!

Schedule it

After you categorize  your work, thoughts, or goals to do, as now or later, you can make achieving your purpose, goals, and communicating easier!

Schedule work or goals that can get done easier first, that way you build confidence in getting the harder work or goals done later.

Scheduling your thoughts is as simple as “think before you speak”!

Establish a Routine

In getting supplies you need for school, think about getting them ready at the same time every day. For example, get your school supplies ready the night before so that you don’t have to rush in the morning!

Routines are like habits when it comes to your thoughts. Get into the habit of using kind words even if you don’t feel like it.

Setting goals doesn’t have to be something big. A simple goal of brushing your teeth every morning and night is not too much to ask!

Children & Their Study Habits

One additional way children can keep organized in school is by improving their study habits!

In addition to the general ways this article discusses to keep organized in school, when it comes to studying, students can also keep these points in mind.

  • Establish a study routine
  • Take mini-breaks
  • Know when to stop studying!

I. Establish a Study Routine

The best way to establish a study routine is to look at your subjects in order of your favorite to least favorite. Why?

Even if your favorite subject needs a lot of work, get it done first because you enjoy this subject. You will build your confidence in getting the work done faster because you like the subject.

If you start with the subject you hate first, you could find yourself studying into the late hours of the night.

II. Take Mini-Breaks

After you finish with a subject, take a mini-break, such as getting a healthy snack, to build up your energy to carry on.

You should also take a mini-break if you just aren’t making any progress with your studies. This break maybe the breather you need to come back an tackle the questions once again.

III. Know When to Stop Studying

If nothing is sinking in as you study, or you are feeling tired or frustrated it may be time to call it a night and try again the next day.

Setting a cut-off time for studying actually benefits your mental health, so consider setting a cut-off time in knowing when to stop studying.

Whatever you didn’t finish after the cut-off time, you can get up a little earlier the next day to finish!
