Sometimes, New Years resolutions are overly ambitious. Sometimes, we don’t put them into practice forgetting about them within just a few days. However, if you follow your resolutions, you can change your life. But which resolutions are really necessary, especially for college students? Keep on reading to learn that!
1. Practice gratitude. It’s a proven fact – being happy makes you more productive and more successful. Therefore, find ways to be happier and more grateful for everything you have. No matter how small or big the things you’re thankful for are, remember not to take them for granted. In this case, even seemingly bad days will get silver linings.
2. Decrease caffeine intake. Most college students tend to drink too much coffee during late nights. Even though coffee and tea are great and tasty, it’s better to decrease your consumption of these drinks. However tough it can be, it will definitely benefit your health.
3. Explore your college town. You can do it in many interesting ways. For instance, eat at a different restaurant once a month or get in touch with charities through volunteering at different non-profit organizations. There are more ways to explore your town. Find what you like the most and do it!
4. Make weekly/monthly resolutions. If you’re not good at long-term planning, try to set monthly or weekly goals. Start with what you want to attain in January. Is it cleaning your closet? Learning to keep your room clean? Whatever it is, work on it!
5. Focus on your health. It refers to your physical, emotional, and mental health. Stop losing sleep and replacing a meal with popcorn and ice-cream. Eat healthier foods. Take rest every weekend. Remember to wear sunscreen and sunglasses daily. Those are the nice resolutions to start with.
