A student’s New Year’s Resolutions

Student resolutionsSo as newly refreshed students from your Christmas break, you’re coming back to university soon, perhaps to some exams, after a period of too much to eat, possibly to drink, so it may be time to rein in those excesses.

January is time to start anew, so here are some suggestions to turn over a new leaf, and put some goals in place for the year:

  • Get fit! You can take up a new sport, join the gym, or even get out and walk more. You’ll find that you’ve got more energy and you can concentrate better, all good for your assignments! How about looking to see what clubs are at your university, it’s also a great chance to make some new friends too!
  • Eat healthier. Taking time to plan what you eat will take some time and effort, but you’ll also find that it’s a lot cheaper than takeaways. So dig out that recipe book that you got for Christmas, find your over gloves, and get cooking! It’s fun to do, you can involve your mates, and you’ll soon see the weight dropping off too
  • Don’t wait until the last minute. Do you find that it’s the day before your essay’s due in, you’ve not even looked at it, and yet you’re still trying to everything but knuckle down to it? So in the New Year, how about bucking the trend and doing the assignment as soon as you receive it? Besides, you’ll probably get first dibs on the books at the library, bonus! Try it, and see how much better you feel, and how much you can rub it in to your fellow students!
  • Socialise more. Now I’m not talking about going down the pub more. Take a look at the societies and clubs you can join, and give one a go! So, if you have a secret chess fantasy, or have wanted to try and give debating a try, then do it!
  • Save money. This is always a good resolution to have, and there’s always ways to save money. Whether it’s swapping smoked salmon for baked beans, or changing your energy provider there are hundreds of ways to count the pennies. For some more ideas, head on over to moneysavingexpert.com
  • Earn some money. If you think you can manage it with your studies, then have a look for a part-time job to help boost your bank balance. Even if you can’t take on a job, then you could consider signing up to be a mystery shopper, or filling in online surveys to earn a bit of extra cash

So give it a go! Start out the New Year as you mean to go on, and enjoy! If you have any questions about your accommodation that you need to ask when you come back, or need to carry on with the house hunting, then please get in touch.
