3 Tips for Conquering Senioritis

1) Keep yourself healthy – Health is the key here. When you’re healthy, you’re feeling better, and when you’re feeling better, you will be more focused. Make sure you are going to bed at a decent hour and eating nice healthy meals throughout the day. When you wake up after a good night’s rest, you will feel fresh and ready to tackle another day.
2) Get involved – You’re not going to be in high school for much longer, so you might as well make the most of it now. Join clubs or teams that you are interested in and enjoy. “Being on the baseball team has kept me motivated to do my schoolwork,” said Keegan Beck, Rockwell Senior. It’s very easy to overlook these things, but it’s important to keep in mind that you may never have opportunities like this again.
3) Don’t work hard, work really hard – This is your last chance to prove to colleges that you are motivated and determined. You have gone to school almost all of your life, don’t give up now when you’re already at the end. One more year compared to 12 is a piece of cake. “You have to keep the end goal in mind when focusing on your future,” said Mya Salinas from Rockwell Charter High School. “My supportive teachers have really helped me a lot.”
