Since the school year has officially began for many of us, we thought it would be helpful to share a few studying tips to help you in your studies.
Do not study on your bed
Our brains associate our beds with sleep. If we begin to study on our beds you may find yourself becoming to get really tired. Some may even fall asleep and work cannot get accomplished. Have a designated studying area so that you will be able to focus and not feel so tired while studying.
Remove all distractions
Unless you need your cell phone in order to complete your studies, remove yourself from any and all distractions. This includes being near TVs, cell phones, tablets, radios, other individuals that you know you will not be able to concentrate when around them. When studying you want to be in an environment that will let you concentrate on your task and increase retention.
Listen to classical music
If you are someone who does need a little background noise to study. Listening to classical music is beneficial while studying. Don’t listen to music in which a lot of speech in involved because that is when one may become distracted singing along to favorite songs.
Study in groups
In the future depending on what field anyone is interested in entering, there will be involvement of teamwork. Get to know people from classes and form study groups to help each other study. This is a great way to study because it is input from several other people, and some of the information they share can be validation or new information you have not thought about previously to include into an answer.
What are a few things that you do to help you study?
To celebrate going back to school, a thought occurred that it would be fun to interview a few workers around the office. Workers were asked how their families are preparing for back to school and if they are going on any last minute trips before school starts.
After asking all office workers and social workers many of them informed me that their children had gone to get hair cuts, bought new clothes, and school supply shopping. One coworker mentioned that a few of their families are trying to fit in one more vacation before school starts.
Over all, many of the youth are very excited to go back to school and wear their new clothes for school!
Are you ready for back to school? Do you have any last minute plans?
For many next week is back to school! We hope everyone is getting ready and getting any necessary back to school items. Remember to start the year off strong! We hope everyone has a great back to school and wish you well on academics!
Looking for something fun to do during the last few weeks of summer with your family? Head to the Orange County Fair! There are many activities to do at the fair. From petting animals, fun educational exhibits, fun rides, food and more! It’s a good opportunity to spend time together with family and have fun doing new things or watching shows that are available!
There are many children who depend on school meals. For many children the only time they were able to eat is at school. Please help children through the summer by donating money to organizations such as No kid Hungry or Feeding America.
No kid Hungry is offering Summer Meals. Parents can test “FOOD” to 877-877 to find free summer meals areas near them.
June 21st is the official start of summer! We hope everyone has a fun summer full of adventures and fun new memories with friends and family! It’s going to be hot so please make sure to always wear sun screen and stay hydrated!
