The Juggling Act: Taking on Middle School One Step at a Time

Hey there, middle school superstars!


So I know that sometimes it feels like you're trying to juggle a gazillion things at once. Homework, clubs, friends, sports – it seems like the more we do, the better we'll be, right? But guess what? Trying to do too many things at once can make things go all wonky!


When we’ve got too much going on, it's like our brains get all jumbled and we can't really focus on anything. And that means our work isn't as awesome as it could be, and we might not be really learning as much as we should.


So, why do middle schoolers make this mistake? Maybe we want to impress our family and friends by showing we can handle a bunch of stuff. Or maybe we want to do all the cool things that are out there. And well, sometimes we just want to stay busy so we don't have to think about our own worries and fears.


But here's the deal: take things one step at a time. Start with one homework assignment, and then move on to the next. Don't try to do everything all at once, or you'll end up dropping all of the balls you’re trying to juggle. And that's a serious no-no!


So, remember, focus on one thing at a time and you'll do better in the long run. There's no rush to do everything all at once. Take it slow and steady. And spreading your focus on schoolwork and activities is like creamy peanut butter – nice and even, not all crunchy and clumpy!
