Good chance to improve yourself
New year is a important part of life of everyone specially of students .It is a very important time to reflect on the change we want or need to make . .For a student’s looking towards good future and good career ,it is a good chance to improve yourself .Following are some of good resolutions that are very important so far as the future point of view .
- Setting of goals
Set a goals which you are going achieved for your future career .It is the first step of your future planning
- Take care of your health
Be wary of diet fads and trends. Quick fixes do not work as the results tend to last only until the next fad comes along.
In terms of food, moderation is key. Keep a copy of Canada’s Food Guide to Healthy Eating on your fridge to remind you of the essentials needed to maintain a balanced diet.
Use stairs instead of the elevator, take the scenic route to class, and leave the car at home. Little things will add up.
Take advantage of your university/college gym. Fees tend to be very low or are already built into your school costs. Local community gyms also offer student discounts.
Your family physician should also be able to help (or direct you to a reliable source) define routines that would work best for your lifestyle.
- Track your progress
Instead of making a standard resolution list, flesh out your ideas into measurable goals. For example, try “Go to the gym 2 times a week” instead of “Lose weight”.Make sure to write down your resolutions and if you’re really keen, keep a checklist to track your progress.You’ll be more likely to stick to a new regime when you can visually see the results.
- Create a budget
Try to create a monthly budget for entertainment, food, toiletries, etc… and stick to it!
Determine what your needs and wants are (new shoes and a Wii are not needs!). Will giving in to a “want” affect your ability to fulfill a “need”? The key thing is to be realistic about your spending habits and know what your weaknesses are and avoid them.
Apply for scholarships. Mark deadlines on your calendar and try to set goals for submitting applications. Example, “I will submit 3 applications each month”.
Open a high interest savings account and allot a certain amount of money to be contributed each month. You can even lock the account so that funds are easily deposited and difficult to withdraw. Sit back and watch the interest build.
Form a study group with friends. Trade ideas and learn new things from your peers. Studying doesn’t always have to be solo project.
Losing marks because you can’t get your assignments in on time? Stop procrastinating. Use the motto, “no time like the present” and stop putting off tasks till “next week”. This way you’ll avoid those last minute mistakes and panic attacks.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help and to use your resources. If you’re struggling with a concept, ask a teacher, professor, TA, parent, or friend. If you don’t speak up, you may find yourself falling further behind.
- Set a Time table Keep a calendar. Deadlines creep up quickly. And the closer the date, the more you’ll feel the pressure. Most students don’t do their best under pressure. And colleges, scholarships, federal aid, and standardized testing services are not going to be sympathetic to any excuses you have about missing a deadline. If you miss a deadline, you miss an opportunity.
For students in particular, the resolution to stop procrastinating is another of the most common – either in general or in relation to a specific type of task – and not just at New Year’s. (If you’re a student and don’t have a procrastination problem, please contact us ASAP so we can all learn from your secrets!) Just ‘stop procrastinating’ alone is too vague; if you want to succeed at this, you’ll need to identify some specific actions (as for all resolutions). Depending on your procrastination habits, this could mean a self-imposed Facebook or YouTube ban (at least during certain hours), finding a less distracting place to study.
- Keep away from mobile Try to avoid mobile phones on which generally you play games , and reduce internet activities
- Physical and mental fitness : Keep your attention on physical and mental fitness which plays a very important role in achieving goals . For that make at least one hour exercise and yoga for mental peace
…….and Happy New years
