19. Be more kind


Coming up with resolutions are hard and sticking to those resolutions are even harder. Whether you wanna call home more or start a revolution, most people will fall off the wagon. This is a list of 19 resolutions for 2019 that even the busy, stressed, college student can stick with through the entire year.

1. Get in shape 

Set a goal to exercise 3-4 days a week (or even just 1-2 days) and the fitness will follow.

2. Eat more fruits and vegetables

3. Eat less junk food

Start with one food at a time. Maybe eliminate fried foods, cake, or candy first and then continue taking junk away.

Water is best and if you enjoy the carbonation then try sparkling waters.

Plan out your day- every day, and set goals to get your work accomplished in a timely manner.

Pay attention to what your mind and your body is telling you. Find those stressors and eliminate them.

Get a job, work more hours, aim for a promotion, etc.

Try deleting the apps off your phone if you have to.

10. Start journaling 

Set aside time every day to write down some thoughts and ideas or just record what you did through the day.

Ask an outside professional for tips or look for patterns in your journaling and figure out how to change them.

Even just one meal. This can help you to stop eating out as much and eat healthier foods.

Something relaxing that can help you decompress and have a good time after a long day.

Stop drinking, stop smoking, stop juuling, take your pick.
