Ask Iris Answers-How to Avoid Being Late!


Dear Iris,

I always tend to be late for my first period class! It is starting to concern me because I keep getting T1’s and it’s getting out of control. I really don’t mean to be late to class, it just happens! Do you have any tips on what I could change in my morning routine so that I could be in time for my class?

Thank you,

A worried sophomore 

Dear worried sophomore,

Don’t you worry, I know it could be tough to wake up early in the morning, especially for school! I sometimes struggle with the same issue too. So, I looked up some tips on how to be earlier and on time more often and here’s what I found:
  • You can set your clock 5 minutes behind than what the actual time; that way you could be more efficient with your time.
  • Be organized! 
    • Always have your belongings and backpack ready the night before, so you can just grab it and go in the morning.
  • Have a schedule 
    • (ex. you will wake up take a shower and get dressed first then grab breakfast or vice versa)
And lastly…
  • Get a good night sleep! 
    • Most of the time people are late because they do not get enough hours of sleep and are exhausted when it comes to the morning.

I hope that helps and let’s try being on time together!

Stay punctual!
