a new daily routine, by SS
Students across the world have been dealing with new changes that the school systems face lately. With all of the online school and social distancing, daily routines can be a little out of wack. Normally, when it is a school night, I am in bed by 9 o clock, and am asleep by no later than 10, because I know that school takes a lot of energy and I will need a good night’s sleep to get through the day.
Then, I wake up at 6:30 each morning, so I have time to get ready before school, which starts at 8:00. During the time I’m getting ready I typically take a shower, get dressed, etc. And then proceed to go downstairs to get breakfast before I leave. When I’m getting ready for school in the mornings I know that I’ll be seeing a lot of my friends throughout the day, so I want to look good.
But, since all the changes have been made with school, my routine became a little different. For the first few nights I would wind up not going to sleep until very, very late, and I would wake up around 9 or 10. After a few nights of doing that I realized that this quarantine time, although it seems like it, is not a vacation for me to lie around all day.
So, I started trying to slowly get back to my normal schedule. Now, I am in bed and asleep by 10 or 11 o’clock on weeknights and I set my alarm to wake up at 7:30. I found that sticking to a normal schedule helps keep me active and productive throughout the day. And as for school, I do not have live video classes, so I don’t need to really get ready for anyone, however, I find that getting ready in the morning helps me to feel more productive and I feel more ready to take on the day. And, I try to get the school work I have for the day done as soon as I wake up. That way I don’t have to worry about doing it later and can relax for the rest of the day.
