实现(心理)飞跃:大学的检查清单

在世界各地,学生们正准备走出巢穴,进入大学的大跃进。在这一时期 Yew Chung International School of Beijing (YCIS Beijing) Guidance Counsellor Jonathan Mellen is particularly busy helping the school’s soon-to-be alumni prepare for their departure from YCIS Beijing. Last month he shared with us the advice he’d prepared for students on packing for university and this month he’s back with tips to help your scholars prepare their minds.

以下是他为毕业生提供的检查清单,以确保他们的头脑具备进行重大转变的能力。
心理检查表列表
1.成长心态
保持开放的心态,知道你将面临不可预见的挑战。不要害怕这一点,但要准备好尝试从每一个挑战和挫折中学习。这些挑战可以成为个人和智力成长的机会。

2.灵活的态度
Entering university will be in many ways like entering an entirely new world. You will encounter new cultures, norms and ways of doing things. It’s important that you come prepared to compromise, this will help minimise conflict, culture shock and frustration.

3.适度的期望
管理你的期望。大学将是一个令人兴奋的大变化,但它可能不会达到你所有的希望。尽量避免在你开始上课之前就对你的大学经历进行心理规划。不可能知道未来几年会发生什么,最好是顺其自然。

4.清晰的自我意识
接受你是谁,扔掉任何在大学里重塑自己或采用新(假)角色的计划。了解和接受你是谁,是做出符合你最佳利益的决定的最好工具。如果你需要帮助了解你是谁,可以尝试做一个性格测试,并列出你的优势和劣势。这应该有助于你开始更清楚地看到自己。

5.明确的目标
Write down your main reason for going to university along with some S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound) goals you have for your university career. Keep this list of over-arching goals somewhere you can easily access it. This list can serve as a compass for you at university, helping you to remember why you are there, what you ultimately want to achieve, and keeping you from getting lost in the broad new world you are about to enter.

6.社会计划
Prepare to have fun! Research the groups on campus you are interested in and make contact. Try to establish a connection before you arrive, so you have people to connect with when you get there. The school’s website and online searches for the relevant social media accounts are good places to start. Even if you are an introvert, don’t skip this step. It’s ok to keep your social plans minimal, but social interaction outside of classes and dormitory life can help you manage stress and avoid isolation.

7.预算
这一点常常被忽视。与你的父母坐下来,审查你将获得的资金(无论是通过工作还是你父母的支持),并将你将面临的所有费用逐项列出。尽量考虑到所有的事情,是的,甚至包括非学术性的费用,以避免紧张的、意外的财务惊喜。从最基本的开始:书本、学校用品、活动、食物、娱乐、交通等。

8.个人护理技能
也许你很幸运,一辈子都有一个阿伊,或者你的父母只是超级照顾你所有的家庭需求,但现在你要自己出去了。学会洗衣服和做基本的食物,练习洗碗,确保你清楚地知道你需要多久换一次毛巾和床单(提示:建议每周一次)。没有人会在你身边照顾你的个人卫生和护理需求,你需要胜任这项工作。

In closing YCIS Beijing University Guidance Counsellor Jonathan Mellen would like to offer two pieces of parting advice:

"态度是你去任何地方都要带的最重要的东西,大学也不例外。积极的态度是没有人可以给你的,只有你自己可以培养这种态度。

"责任感是在内部培养起来的。人们可以给你提示和指导,但要靠你自己来培养这种特质。"

我们祝愿所有的毕业生在大学及以后的生活中取得圆满成功!

我们希望你认为这份大学 "心理检查表 "对你有帮助。
