We get it, school can be boring and annoying sometimes… Your bag often feels too heavy, the classrooms get boiling hot, and teachers can be so grumpy! The good news is, there are just as many (if not more) ups than downs. Think about it: school is the best playground in life! You get to learn about people and different personality types, and figure out what you’re good at without the grown-up pressure of having to make money. Maybe it’s sports or science or both? Maybe you realise how much you love acting, or why you enjoy a good debate. You could even start a sideline venture that earns you some extra bucks?
Basically, keep the picture of your future self in mind and make school more fun with the simple 3 OROS “Be’s”...
It all starts with getting a good amount of sleep every night. And to get this, don’t pack your school bag at the very last minute! Get your books together for the next day’s classes soon after you’re done with all your homework. Check that you have a bunch of snacks for your lunchbox as well — perhaps a peanut butter sandwich, cheese and crackers, your favourite fruit, energy bars, and OROS Ready-to-drink?
If you’re not a fan of Maths, it’s okay. If English makes you sigh, it’s also okay! However, you can’t tell yourself how much you hate certain subjects all the time because, unfortunately, it will ruin your experience of the ones you actually do enjoy. Everytime your thoughts take a turn for the worse, tell yourself: “Science is not my favourite, but History makes up for it!” If you need extra motivation, get involved with a club or personal project you can look forward to working on after school. Check out our ideas on how to start a fun new hobby here.
One day, you’re feeling down. The next, your friend is. This is totally normal! There’s no need to feel like you two are the only ones who aren’t always having a great time at school. We simply need to support each other by being available to exchange thoughts and opinions. Seriously, just vent for a few minutes without apologising for it! If you feel stuck on something and need an outsider’s perspective, have a chat with that awesome teacher who makes everyone laugh? We can all do with the reminder to not only be kind to others, but also to ourselves.
