Students – these are the top 5 New Year’s resolutions you should be focused on.
1. Be Healthy
Sure, everyone says they are going to be healthier in the new year. Its even one of the most popular resolutions (most popular New Years resolutions ). But, getting in shape will give you more energy according to WebMD. Meaning more stamina to study longer or join that one extra club. So we are all for this cliche. Oh and just think about how good you will be looking by summer time! Runkeeper is a great app to help you get started.
2. Stay Organized
With all the end of semester stress, it’s really easy to let yourself get unorganized. This New Year’s resolution will help you stay focuses to be the best student possible. Using apps like EverNote can help you keep track of your assignments and tasks.
3. Improve Your Grades
You might already be doing well in school but why not challenge yourself to do even BETTER! Make the commitment to push yourself to study longer, or work harder on that one project, and make this year your BEST ACADEMIC YEAR YET. Apps like Tasks by Google will help you remember when your homework is due, or SelfControl aims to stop you from procrastinating. These are just some of the great tools out there to help you achieve this goal.
4. Save Money
Start to take a look at what you spend money on each month by category (i.e. – food, sporting events, gas, a hobby you have, etc.). Trust us, the results will surprise you! Then, make a conscious effort to try to spend even a few dollars less each week or month on that specific category. By the end of next year, you will have quite the savings! One good app to use is Mint!
5. Do Volunteer Work/ Community Service
There is nothing better than that feeling of doing something for others and the new year is the perfect time to start. This year your New Year’s resolution could be to volunteer in a retirement home or do some work for your community. You can even start a GoEnnounce fundraising Mission to help raise money for something great.
