Wow! Can you believe that it is already 2017?! We sure can't. If you are still struggling to think of some new year's resolutions to make this year, we have got the perfect list for you! Pick one or do them all, either way, make 2017 your best year yet!
#1 Get more sleep
Perhaps last semester you pulled too many all-nighters and thus lost lots of hours of some much needed sleep. This year, resolve to spend more time in bed by catching those much needed Zzz's that we all need to be able to reset and be refreshed to tackle the next day!
#2 Add color to your meals
Maybe you spent too much time in the cafeteria during Taco Tuesday or "chicken nugget" Monday and filling up on all the fried delicious foods that campuses are famous for providing. Instead, try to add some more colorful foods to your plate during crucial meals like lunch and dinner. Forego the mashed potatoes for the third time this week and instead add some broccoli or a delicious salad from the build-your-own bar.
#3 Step out of your comfort zone
Did you spend last semester "on the sidelines" when it came to new experiences or adventures that were campus-offered? Why not try something new this year? Sign up for a club or organization, take a leadership role on campus, attend a networking event, or do anything just to get you outside of your comfort zone for a bit!
#4 Finish your papers at least one day in advance
This one might be a long stretch, but its certainly worth a try! Instead of rushing to complete your paper before midnight the day it is due, take time to prepare yourself for the due date and make it a goal to accomplish the paper an entire day in advance!
#5 Try to make a friend in every class you take
As you are beginning a new semester, this is a great opportunity to meet new people in your classes and form new friendships. If you continue forming friendships in your courses that are within your major, these people could end up being great friends that you will someday graduate with!
#6 Make your bed
Do we sound like your mother? There is just something nice about coming home after class, practice, or an organization meeting and knowing that you get to crawl into a nicely made bed! Give it a try. We promise you just might continue making it a habit!
#7 Find an internship
If you have declared your major, it might be time to find an internship this year to give you the experience you need to set you up for a great career upon graduation. Maybe you won't take on an internship during the semester, but could be a great resolution to make for the summer months!
#8 Actually visit the library
Have you been on the phone with your parents too long and told them you are headed to the library to get some homework done, but really you just wanted a quick way to cut out early? Well, perhaps this year should be the year that you actually try out the campus library and see if you can get in the study zone to excel beyond your performance last semester!
