There is no better time to play “Summertime Sadness” by our girl Lana than when summer is ending. To make your back-to-school a little less “sad” follow a few of our hacks to get you excited for fall! By starting the semester off right, you can set the tone for a killer school year.
1. Create the perfect study space
While studying may not be your first choice when deciding what to do for the weekend, it is important to incorporate it into your life and apartment. Set up a clean table - as far away from distractions as possible - with good lighting.
By having a dedicated space to study, it’ll be easier to establish a routine and get into the right headspace.

2. ....But a space to relax is just as important as a study space
Having a balance of work and play is crucial for a successful year. Creating a comfy space to relax in can help you mentally switch from study to chill mode so you don’t burn out. This place can be your living room, bed, reading nook or anywhere you feel the most comfortable!
3. Set up a simple, but effective, home gym!
Gym memberships can be expensive, and trying to work out between classes doesn’t always work out (pun intended). By creating your own “home gym” or work out space, you can take some of the hassle out of working out.
Plus, September is like a miniature New Years, so set goals for the semester. Don’t forget – exercising is a great way to blow off steam when studying becomes too much.

4. Re-organize your closet
Summer is over, so make sure your fall wardrobe is in! Get the right back-to-school look with a fresh wardrobe for a fresh start (even if it isn’t “fresh,” not seeing your favourite sweater for a few months always makes you appreciate it more when you unpack your fall wardrobe!)
Yes, school can be difficult. But to sweeten that sour taste, you can use these hacks to make your apartment “back-to-schoolified”. And hey, back to school has some perks – like a set schedule, school spirit and being one year closer to graduation! Stay strong Ottawa, it’ll all be worth it.
