This year lets ditch the "new year, new me" and stick to actual goals you can keep throughout the year.
Go To The Gym A Few Times A Week
Setting out on a fitness journey after ringing in the new year is a great plan. Although, set realistic goals. Telling yourself you're going to go to the gym 7 days a week for 2 hours is setting yourself up for failure. Try to aim for 3 days a week for 45 minutes to an hour. Cardio, HIIT and weight lifting are all great options. Find what you love and stick with it!
Drink More Water
Seems simple, but you probably don't drink enough water. Put down the red bull and pick up a water bottle. Some benefits of drinking more water are that water helps energize muscles, helps keep your skin clear and helps your kidneys!
Practice Self Care
Loving yourself and the body you are in is so important. Get enough sleep, eat a well balanced diet, do a face mask, take a bubble bath, read a book, watch a movie or try yoga.
I think this is something everyone can and knows that they should work on but never does. Leaving whatever you have to do until the last minute creates unwanted stress. Some ways to procrastinate less are by setting a firm deadline and holding yourself accountable, shutting off your phone, reward good behavior and focus less on being perfect and more on getting what needs to be done.
Say Yes More
Although sitting on the couch on a Saturday can be therapeutic, so can going out with your friends. Say yes more, you may make some of the best new memories!
Find A Hobby That You Are Passionate About
Find a hobby that you are actually passionate about so the next time someone asks you "whats your favorite hobby or activity" you don't have to lie and come up with something on the spot. Some hobbies to mention are writing, painting, photography and cooking!
Try to read a few pages of your favorite book before going to sleep! It is a great way to decompress and wind down for the night.
Keep A Journal
At the end of each day, sit down and write one thing that happened that day. At the end of the year you can look reflect on all that has happened.
Save Money (Even If It's In A Small Way)
Saving money as a broke college students seems almost impossible, hence the words "broke college student." But, even if you skip out on getting a coffee a few days a week or put your change in a jar it will all start to add up.
Voice Your Opinion
If you are someone (like me) who tends to let people walk all over you and not say how you truly feel, stop! In the end, it only hurts your self confidence and leaves you with words that were left unsaid.
Embrace The Outdoors
Get up off the couch and off your phone and experience all the outdoors has to offer. In warmer months, try hiking or swimming!
Stop going to be at 2 A.M. when you know that will only result in being extremely exhausted the next day. Getting more sleep can help to promote weight loss and improve memory!
