Welcome back to school fellas. You are possibly experiencing post-holiday blues, known as the inability to adjust yourself to a normal routine after a break. The leisurely lifestyle during the holidays might make you sleep later than normal due to an absence of morning lectures to serve as motivation. A few days into it, your body clock will be disrupted, you will get used to the extra leisure, sleeping, and getting up time. The longer the holiday is, the more intense the post-holiday blues may be.

A lot of you may have assignments or tests due the first week back to university. It is not fun suffering from the post-holiday blues during this important time. Here are some tips that I found useful, and hopefully you too will find them helpful.

First of all, eat on time. As I know, some of my friends always skip breakfast if they are going to morning classes. They choose to get a tiny bit more sleep and go to the lecture, then have breakfast after the lecture. However, there are lots of studies that suggest doing intelligent work on an empty stomach might not be a good idea. Our brains need nutritional food to work properly.

The next practical tip is a Sunday-school truth — exercise, especially aerobic exercises. Exercise can regulate our body clock and emotions. I have always found the gym is a better place to go than the bed when I am tired from intellectual work.

Last, but not least, is to start keeping regular living habits that make you feel awesome in the morning. For instance, I always drink a glass of warm water after getting up — it makes me awake and refreshed for the new day. Doing these personal habits in the mornings remind you that it is the beginning of another gorgeous day, and you will love it.
