Don't Bother With a Resolution

You know you won't keep it anyway

Don't Bother With a Resolution

Every year I sit down at the table at Christmas for dinner and either my mom or my grandma will ask what my resolution is for the next year. And of course, I haven't thought about what I'm doing tomorrow let alone next in 2019, I know I can't be alone.

What is the point of making up a resolution on the fly that you don't even mean to keep? And, what's the point of making a resolution anyway? When was the last time you actually followed through on a resolution?

Here are some things you should do instead of making a resolution:

1. Download a mediation app

I recommend the app Headspace, they have a student discount and send reminders to take time to meditate. Seriously life changing.

2. Set reminders

Use the reminder app on your phone of things you want to accomplish daily, weekly, or monthly. From reminding you to do squats to calling your mom, this will keep you accountable and you'll accomplish more!

3. Create a good mood playlist

Curate a playlist that's all your own with music that can pick up your mood. Start your morning with a good mood playlist and which how your attitude changes.

4. Utilize a planner

Some people are not planner people and I get that, but even if you don't like using one, try a small one that is easy to carry with you. Being able to write down what you need to do and when will help you accomplish more.

5. Check in on your friends

When you check in on your friends you better your friendship and allow yourself to meet your social needs without having to scroll mindlessly through social media.

Doing all these things will help you more than a resolution can and are things you can continue to excel at throughout the year.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
