Whether you’re beginning a new job or a new school year, change is exciting—but it can also be nerve-racking. Staying prepared can help you get ahead of potential obstacles and focus on all the great opportunities that are ahead of you. Here are a few ways to ward off the scaries and set yourself up for success by using tech to your advantage.

Notes anytime, any place
Use the Samsung Notes app to create reminders, and never miss a beat when you sync your notes across your Galaxy devices.

Keep your tasks organised

When your days involve back-to-back classes or meetings, it’s important to have your notes easily accessible, no matter where you are. Keep everything in one place on the Galaxy Tab S8 and consider the S Pen your productivity bestie. The S Pen acts like a real pen, so you can scribe your to-do lists by hand and annotate notes on the fly, which comes in handy especially if you’re in the middle of a live class or webinar. Plus, its light weight and long battery life¹ make it easy to bop around campus or the office. Need to go into focus mode? Connect your tablet to your Galaxy Book2 Pro for a second screen² to expand your workspace.

Make multitasking a friend

You know the saying: work smarter, not harder. That’s especially true with multitasking, which can help you save time and energy. To do it right, you need to stay connected with everything going on and prioritise all the tasks on your plate. Use the Link to Windows³ feature on your Galaxy S22 to mirror your phone’s screen to your PC, transfer files, sync your calendar or respond to texts and calls. Let’s say you’ve got a big deadline coming up on a group project. Rather than switch back and forth from your phone to your PC, which can be incredibly distracting, you can hop on a video chat with your colleagues in one PC window while collaborating on your project in another.

Don't forget to relax

When everything feels urgent, downtime can almost feel like a challenge. Give yourself permission to take it easy during your off hours and disconnect from any work-related tasks with a de-stressing activity. That can be watching your favourite show, blasting a power playlist or catching up with friends on a video call. Just pair your Galaxy S22 with your Galaxy Buds2 and use the Active Noise Canceling⁴ feature to block out environmental noise, avoid distractions and listen to music—without disturbing your roommates. Remember, enjoying yourself is key to staying level-headed and allows you to soak up all of the learning and growth opportunities that surround you.

Put your wellbeing first

The number one thing to prioritise during this time of transition is yourself, and that means getting enough sleep and physical activity each day. A trusty smartwatch like the Galaxy Watch4 can be the accountability buddy you need to establish a healthy routine. Not only can you track your workouts and health data, you can also monitor your Zs to make sure you’re getting quality rest, because, like the old Irish proverb says, the two best cures for anything are a good laugh and a long sleep. Armed with insights into your sleep cycles and duration, you can then create a bedtime schedule that works for you and your body clock.⁵ ⁶
