1). Create a layout of your plans and goals
Set both short-term and long-term goals. With these little steps, you can do a better job obtaining good results. Planning is a useful thing, though it’s often underestimated. And ignoring the planning stage is a fundamental mistake. You can check how your productivity and achievements are depending on your planning.

Being organized is a good quality for a person who studies. If delaying things has always been your problem, this fresh academic year is a perfect time to get rid of this annoying habit. Manage your time accordingly among the subjects in whom you are strong and weak. Give maximum time to the subjects that need more attention and accordingly set a time frame for the remaining subjects in which you are capable of doing good.
3). Ask your educators and classmates for help
There’s nothing to be ashamed of if you need help. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and ask for assistance regarding the doubts or issues you don’t understand. In schools, universities or colleges, all the students chase the same goal– to learn well. Besides, help from meritorious students can be good for those who need help and those who offer it. Same with teachers, as they always encourage students to ask questions related to study materials.
4). Make good new friends
As the old saying goes, a friend in need is a friend indeed! So, always try to expand your friend circle. Making friends with an ideal, honest and well behaved person is always like having sweets in both hands. You can study well and enjoy your free time with them equally. Moreover, such friendships can even last for a lifetime. So, don’t miss your opportunity of making your life a most pleasant one. As, it’s only a true friend who is considered the closest and best supporter after a family.
5). Develop your own anti-stress strategies
Managing stress and bringing your life into balance is a good skill to gain. Everyone are trying to cope with stress differently. Different people do different activities as in play sports, take a sufficient night’s sleep, get together with friends after class, or prefer watching their favorite TV show. The most important thing is to get rid of stress, or else it can grow into anxiety, depression and other terrible things. And, of course, how can people study in a productive way if their minds are wasted else where?
6). Always be sincere with what you do
Whether it is studies, household activities, play time, a visit, or an healthy communication with someone, thoroughly inculcate this fact in your life to consistently be honest and sincere in whatsoever activity you are undertaking. This is the only true principle of life that will lead you towards your dream on the most acceptable and generous path. Moreover, you will be immensely satisfied from both, inner and outer state of yourself when start walking on this ethical lane.
And now the most important concern of the huge burden of school bags that’s put on the delicate shoulders of small students.
Kids are almost left with no options than to carry heavy school bags to school these days for a number of reasons. It has been closely observed by pediatricians that such a weight directly leads to a rise of major health issues in growing children. It is not any more uncommon to find students especially in middle schools (6th-10th standard) carrying huge bags on their backs regularly with their shoulders drawn down with the weight.
It is not surprising then that children complain of various pains and sprains as they are not having strength to lug such a massive heap of books. These overloaded school bags, which can weigh up to a quarter of a child’s weight, are leaving youngsters at a high risk of poor posture. Hence, this has become a major concern for all parents.
An important study shows that a child should not carry a bag that weighs more than 10 per cent of their bodyweight, so that means a child weighing 25 kilograms could develop back problems if their bag weighs more than 2.5 kilograms.
The Harmful Effect
If a student has a heavy bag, their entire body is pulled backwards. To compensate for this, the child rounds their back forwards to lean ahead to balance the weight. This causes neck, back, spine, shoulder and joint pain with their head also straining forward. All of this is made worse if a child has to climb stairs in school. This makes it harder for muscles and ligaments to hold the body up. Shoulders are also not something meant to hang things from. A heavy load places too much stress on them. The knees are affected as a child walks differently with a heavy bag on their back.
Thus, parents argue that extra books should be kept on campus. Another option is to let the child keep them at home if they are not needed in school. The homework can be given in single sheets for small kids and online submission should be there for senior students. We want a healthy and happy future for our country.
Other culprits? Fancy bags, carrying all-subject books!
It’s not the weight of books alone, but that of fancy bags too. Bags with attached trolleys add unwanted weight to the back, leading to perennial backaches and soreness. Some students carry heavy encyclopedias and other such books to school without their parents’ consent, the intention may be just to show them to their classmates, but this only adds to their adversity. Once children start suffering from back problems, they may continue to face them throughout life.
Another measure suggested by a certain state government is to introduce lockers to schools so that students don’t need to carry all their study material, equipment, and stationery every day. Where students should keep their books and other stuffs in school premises itself rather than carrying back to home.
Another option could be the implementation of only four different periods rather than of eight periods of individual subjects daily. This measure will ultimately increase the time duration of lecture and easily decrease the load of books that students carry daily. Schools should conduct classes with three different subjects only on a daily note. Likewise, on alternate days same subjects classes should be held. For example, on Monday-Wednesday-Friday: Take Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics classes and on Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday: Take Biology, Geography and History classes. The remaining subjects can be then easily adjusted as per the requirement. This process will definitely help in enhancing the learning power of student along with the direct reduction of weight put by excess books. Also, the government can adopt the method of dividing a book into portions such as from chapter 1-5: volume 1, chapter 5-10: volume 2 and the remaining chapters with volume 3.
We can also implement the best option technology has contributed in the form of tablets and start teaching on them. The entire syllabus can be easily loaded and installed on these particular tablets that would replace the present book system, acting as a perfect medium to learn anytime anywhere. Ultimately, carrying a tablet is obviously effortless and simple for a student in comparison to the weight that they lug on their shoulders daily.
Despite all the progress in technology and science, the modern system of education has yet not come out with any other option where a student does not have to carry such heavy bags. In this era of going cashless and paperless can there be an alternative for heavy school bags. The answer is yes.
‘Quality Learning System’, a very diversed, education based and honest academy has came up with an impressive process of educating students online. As, today every student is keen in technology and gadgets, so why not teach them with their own option of interest. QLS academy has introduced its study material completely prescribed by the NCERT to make learning easy and has initiated its assistance in education to better the life of students.
Each and every chapter is segmented into three parts. Each part has also been further divided into similar portions to make learning very easy. As illustrated, teaching is operated online, so a teacher starts teaching a respective topic by showing slides and videos through projectors. After the topic is completed, a small test is conducted in order to evaluate how much a student has grasped. Students will be provided with tabs, on which they’ll perform their tests. No topic and no slide can be skipped, if a faculty wishes too, everything has to be taught. The entire system is controlled and monitored by online mode and no authority is provided to the faculty except, to cater proper teaching to students. Students are taught by advanced tablets as per the objective to use technology.
By this process, everything is closely analyzed and judged such as the student’s learning power and the way of teaching by the faculty. The complete QLS system operates on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and is invented on the best exclusive technology. As discussed, the burden of these school bags are terribly ruining the life of students, hence with this extremely brilliant, comforting and interesting methodology by QLS, the weight of textbooks is entirely terminated. Introduction of such virtual and innovative teaching process is now the best trend and route to make students learn and bring wisdom.
This system equals education for all level of students as in excellent, average and poor. The excellent student automatically will go beyond their excellence, the average student will definitely develop his level and try to become a topper and the poor grade students, we are confident and sure will start taking interest in studies and soon will be one of the merit holder. QLS only set aim is for students on how to improve their aptitude, skills and to make them enormously knowledgeable in their area of interest that would directly aid in the development of the nation.
Thus, bring the best and ideal change in the learning process of your child via QLS with the superb mechanism of teaching that has never thought by any education institute. We hope the concerned government, schools or other respective responsibles’ come forward with creative ways in order to tackle this great suffering of small students. Also, if any institution agrees with the positive suggestion brought up by QLS in respect to bring rest to the delicate shoulders of students, they can implement it and gift students relief from their excess physical as well as mental load. It’s feels extremely happy to inform that QLS academy always had worked to improve and bring positive transformation to the education sector.
Furthermore, a combination of approaches, ideas and suggestions, along with cooperation between parents and school, can go a long way in reducing the burden of one of the most serious health hazards of recent times.
