Happiness and Transitions

As summertime ends, we transition from pool time and vacations to school, extracurricular activities, and scheduled routines. Some of us are eager to return to consistent schedules, others are not ready for summer to end, and some struggle with the transition. Students and parents (of all ages) tend to have some anxiety about the future year. If you are struggling with transitioning to the fall season, checkout some of the helpful tips below:

  • Emphasize optimism and new opportunities
  • Focus on strengthening your resilience
  • Accumulate positive experiences and build mastery
  • Embrace your emotions
  • Remind yourself of past successes
  • Be flexible – Our plans for transitions don’t always work, so be open to making alternative strategies
  • Take care of yourself physically and mentally
  • Reflect on what is within your control and what isn’t
