Essential Back to School life-hacks to save you some time
We’re all wishing it was still too soon to be talking about back to school, but the reality is the new school year is creeping closer day by day. Our experts have put together these tech tips to help you start the new term ahead of the curve.
Only have 30 mins to get ready in the morning? Create a timed playlist, then press play when you wake up. That way you’ll know how long you have to get washed, dressed, fed and out the door.
As soon as you know your class schedule, take a pic and make it the wallpaper on your phone. You’ll probably look at it a hundred times a day, so will memorize it really quickly.
Wikipedia is a great first point to start research, unfortunately though there’s about a million words on anything you look up. Use simple.wikipedia.com to get the basic version of any page without the fluff.
Finding the alarm on your phone isn’t loud enough to wake you some mornings? Place it in an empty glass to amplify the sound.
Lastly, put that glass and phone across the room so that you’re forced to get out of bed in the morning. Once you’ve put it down for the night, minimize light in the room and read a book. When it gets dark your body releases a hormone called melatonin and you get sleepy. Remember that bonus fact for your biology class.
