Wow what a start to the year! School is back in full swing and we are left wondering where the holidays went! This year, the Shine From Within team launched a new half day workshop for teen girls called Back 2 School. It covered releasing negative habits and thought patterns from the year before, time management skills, stress relief tactics and setting goals for the year ahead.
As always, I learned a thing or two from the girls who attended! It was wonderful to have a room full of girls keen to get off on the right track when school started back (even if some of them were sent by their parents). They were engaged, excited to share their tips and had loads of questions.
When we asked what worked for them in terms of time management and study, these were the top tips they came up with:
What I found really interesting is that the students who came along already knew what they needed to do. It is just having the motivation and support to actually put things in place and create healthy habits that work for them. Everyone has different styles of learning, different times of day when they can focus the best and different distractions to be aware of. The sooner they can tune in to what actually works well for them and get in to a routine, the better!
