2016 was a year of many struggles. The spring semester is coming up soon, and now's a good chance to sit down and think about how you want this year to play out.
1. Take it easy on the late night take out
That Chinese food SEEMED like a good idea at 2 am, but I'm really feeling it the next day...
2. Don't wait until the last minute to do a project
Procrastination is the easiest trap to fall into, but we've got to find a way out.
3. Spend some time in the library
Getting yourself to sit down and focus can really work wonders.
4. Stop skipping class
It's such an easy thing to do, but you never know what kind of hints professors can drop in passing of lectures.
5. Cut down on the weekday nights out
They can take their toll more than you think.
6. Actually use my gym pass
You've had it hanging on your key chain for months. We can all admit that we don't go to the gym as much as we'd like to.
7. Wash my sheets more often
No better feeling than curling up into a clean, warm bed.
The three or four hours a night just aren't going to cut it anymore.
9. Try something new
A new club, a class you wouldn't normally take, get out there and give it a try!
10. Make time for old friends
Life can be busy, but you can both appreciate some catching up.
11. Say "no"
Trust me, FOMO is super real. But sometimes you need to turn down that coffee run and stick to what you're doing.
12. Go to office hours
Professors can be a lot more helpful with some one on one help.
13. Take care of myself
Mental health days, spa days, whatever you need!
14. Save money
Even if it's putting away $5 every week, any money saved is good money saved.
15. Pay off those credit card bills
Speaking of money..... get yourself out of debt.
16. Be on time
This goes for classes, meetings, plans that you made with friends.
17. Be happy with how the year went
This day next year I hope you can be happy with the things you did the past 365 days.
Happy New Year, everyone!
