Hey, y’all! I hope you are all at peace today! So, school has been in session for about a month now, and we are all still probably adjusting to new teachers, classmates, and possibly even a new school. Starting a new school year can always be challenging, but especially so, when it’s your first year of middle school. ✨
It can be kind of scary to learn a new environment, at first. However, doing so is a part of life that we all have to go through. This is exactly why I wanted to share with you all 3 Tips on How to Thrive in Middle School!
So, let’s get started!
- Do your best in your classes. ✨
I know, I know. You probably want to know how to thrive socially in middle school. Starting junior high school is that point in our lives where we want to make friends, be popular, etc. And while there’s nothing wrong with having friends, it’s also important that you do well academically. Taking notes in your class, doing your homework, and studying often are all ways that you can help ensure that you are academically secure.
You might not like it now, but you will appreciate all of that hard work that you did when you’re all grown up and living your best life emotionally, physically, and financially.
2. Be yourself. ✨
Trust me, most people have been to a point in their lives where they have wanted to be included or accepted by a specific person or group of people. If you ever feel this way, remember that you don’t have to change who you are for anyone. Be who you truly are. True friends will come, if you do. Besides, who wants “friends” if they aren’t even real.
Also, remember, an important part of life is accepting the reality that some people might not like you. And that’s okay! As long as you love yourself and who you are, what others think is not important, at all.
3. Make self care one of your priorities. ✨
During middle school, most of us are experiencing physical changes, whether you’re sweating more, your voice is cracking or getting deeper, or you seem to be getting clumsier. Remember, during the tweenage and teenage years, physical and mental health is super important! Always try to do things that help you relax, such as listening to calm music, talking to a sibling or best friend when you are upset, doing some yoga, or just making sure to give yourself a pep talk everyday. These are all ways that you can help increase the well-being of both your mental and physical health.
Okay, everyone! I hope that you enjoyed these 3 Tips on How to Thrive in Middle School. Although it can be tough, it will eventually come to an end. Just remember to focus in school, own who you are, and take care of yourself. If you do, I’m sure that you’ll be thriving in no time!
Have a happy, healthy, and peaceful day, everyone! ✨
