New acquaintances

Set himself the task every day to get acquainted with a new man. These can be children from school, children from the yard, neighbors - but anyone! You will probably feel anxious and uncomfortable at first, and that's okay. But the more you get to know each other, the faster you will understand that this is not scary. This skill will come in handy in your adult life, so don't be afraid and take action!

 

Always with a smile

You must admit that it is much more pleasant to talk with a smiling person than with someone who has eaten a lemon. Therefore, watch your facial expression. Try to always have a slight benevolent smile on him. Do not smile unnaturally or too broadly, it will rather alienate the person. Sometimes an “inner” smile that comes from the heart is enough. This will already create a friendly atmosphere around you.

 

Before everyone

Communication skills can be improved by speaking in front of a large audience. It's not difficult - just raise your hand more often and answer in class, recite poems at the blackboard, speak at school holidays. You will learn how to confidently behave "in public" - and communication in companies will become the easiest thing for you.

 

Talk to yourself

Go to the mirror, look at yourself, choose any idea and start talking it over. Move smoothly from one thought to another and continue the story. This exercise will allow you to look at yourself from the outside during communication and will teach you to express yourself well. Over time, your speech will become more coherent and you will learn to tell interesting stories!

 

On his place

For good communication, it is very important to understand the emotions and intentions of the interlocutor. During a conversation, try to put yourself in his place and imagine what he is thinking about, what he feels, whether he is interested. This will make you more empathetic and it will be much easier for you to understand people.

 

Strengths

Confidence always attracts, so work on your self-esteem. Write down the five main qualities that you possess and the five achievements that you are proud of. More is possible! But no less. So you will see that you have many strengths and begin to appreciate and respect yourself. People around you will feel this, and it will become even more pleasant for them to spend time with you.

 

More tips

The thought of the upcoming classes causes anguish and there is absolutely no strength to learn? Perhaps you need additional motivation to make classes fun. It will not be possible to influence teachers and schools, so you have to solve this problem yourself!

  1. Boredom is a lack of interest. Remember what you like doing in your free time. Add these things to your life - for example, find time after class or during breaks. This will help to get out of gloom.

  2. Identify important for yourself subjects that are needed for entering a university or cause you maximum interest - and study them more deeply. Watch movies related to them, read additional literature, go to museums. Get information not for the exam, but for the knowledge itself!

  3. If necessary, start studying interesting subjects with a tutor or visit the sections.

  4. In other subjects your task is simply to get a normal mark. So do not go deep, behave quietly in the lesson, do not enrage the teacher and do your homework.

  5. Break large tasks into small ones and do them in parts, encouraging yourself for the successful completion of each stage. Sometimes it is the scope of the upcoming work that scares, that even hands fall. Moving in small steps, you can not give up!

  6. Participate in extracurricular activities such as a theater group, so that the school is not associated only with boredom.

  7. Look for like-minded people on your favorite hobbies. Communicating with them will support you and help you develop in important directions.

  8. If it is difficult to sit on lessons, think with your parents about an alternative. You can conclude an agreement with the school and go to home schooling or attend some of the subjects, and study the rest yourself and come to school to take exams. Explore this topic and potential opportunities. But the transition to this form of training will require you to work hard and concentrate at home!

I wish you to overcome boredom and enjoy life and knowledge!
