Hey guys! Welcome back. It’s impossible to avoid morning classes sometimes. We all fall into them at some point in out college career. Those 8 a.m. classes are the worst because we don’t always have the motivation to get up and get going that early. However, there are some things you can do to make having to go to these classes a little bit easier. It may not be better, but it is easier. But before we get into that I want to let you guys know that this Wednesday I will be doing a Back To School Q&A, so if you have any questions leave them below of find us on social media. I will link all of that below. Get your questions in by 3:00 p.m. central time on Tuesday and you will be entered to win a Back To School College Giveaway full of some of my favorite products for your dorm! So be sure you are following this blog or following one of our social media pages and leave a question you have. It doesn’t hurt to like my posts either. Now let’s get into how to survive those morning classes!
Sleep the night before.
I know this might go without saying, but it is important. You can’t sleep in if you want to make it to class, so you have to go to bed just a little earlier and get some sleep. This will make you feel more awake in the morning and you won’t dread it as much.
You just went seven to eight hours at least without eating, so you need to refuel for the day ahead. Having a nice breakfast will give you a ton of energy and help you get through those morning classes. It’s never good if you are hungry during class.
Sit in the front of the class.
This will help you stay awake because if you fall asleep everyone behind you will see. The professor will either wake you up or embarrass you and neither one of those is good. So sitting in the front will hold you accountable.
Like eating, you probably haven’t had a drink in seven to eight hours. So getting hydrated first thing in the morning is a great way to wake up and feel refreshed. Drinking water gets your blood flowing and that helps you get moving!
Pack your backpack the night before.
This will help if you are running late, but it’s also good because you are less likely to forget something if you get it ready ahead of time. You will feel more prepared in the morning and are less likely to feel stress so early trying to remember what you need.
Set multiple alarms.
Not just to get up, although that is important, but also when you need to get ready, when you need to eat breakfast, when you need to leave for class. These alarms work as reminders so you don’t forget to do anything.
Get your clothes out the night before.
This will eliminate the need to stand there for ten minutes in the morning trying to decide what you want to wear. You will already know and it will take two minutes to get dressed and you won’t have to worry about it.
Yeah you had breakfast, but you are sitting in class. Depending on how many you have you might need that mid-morning snack. So bring a granola bar or some crackers or something to have in between classes.
Wash your face.
Or take a shower if you prefer to do that in the morning. Washing your face with cold water in the morning will help wake you up and feel refreshed. Once your face is clean you have a fresh start to the day and there is no better feeling.
Think of the benefits.
Having morning classes is great because you get up at a decent time, you get it out of the way, and you have the rest of your day to do other things. There are negatives, but most importantly there are positives.
