New Year’s Resolutions for a Working Student

by on December 20th, 2017 in Articles News

The New Year is nearly upon us, and with it brings a list of New Year’s Resolutions. For many, New Year’s Resolutions may last only a few months and then slowly yet surely old habits begin to creep back in. Here at Ayers Career College, want to see your New Year bring in better grades and healthier lifestyles.

You work, have a family, and go to school. To say your life is hectic would be an understatement. You started school because you desire to grow, learn, and create a better life for yourself, and we want to help. Here are some New Year’s Resolutions that will help you improve your health, grades, and even yourself.

1. Stay Rested

It cannot be stressed enough, but a way to a healthy body and a healthy brain is through sleep. If you know you are not getting enough sleep right now, it is time for a switch. Staying rested will not only make you feel better but will also improve your thinking. Better thinking will result in better grades!

2. Get Organized

This is difficult for some people. We suggest getting a planner or downloading an app you will actually use to keep a schedule. Then, here is the key: use it! At the beginning of the week, take time to sit down and schedule your week. This means penciling in time for studying and homework as well as exercise and some downtime to simply rest and breathe.

3. Take a Day Off

You can choose to go nonstop until you hit a wall, or you can schedule the time to rest and refuel to keep going for the long haul. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. Make sure to schedule one day a week to not look at homework or work but to do the things you love and bring you life. If you are in a season of life where a day is not an option, then give yourself half a day or schedule thirty minutes in every day where you can breathe and feel refreshed.

4. Start Moving

Exercise has so many benefits and not just physically. Making time for just thirty minutes of movement every day will benefit you physically, mentally, and emotionally. If you are new to exercising, do not feel overwhelmed. Start with going for a walk in nature, or explore different options to find something you love. You will find that exercise can become a place to escape and recharge.

5. Don’t do it Alone

Whether it is studying, exercising, or your day off, find people to enjoy it with. You weren’t meant to do it all alone.

It may seem like very few of these resolutions actually have to do with schooling, but by taking care of yourself, you will quickly see an improvement in your work. Begin the New Year by valuing yourself, getting organized, and see the difference it will make in every area of your life.
