Attempt Normal Sleeping PatternsSleep is vital if you want to have energy for your classes and job. Giving yourself a set curfew every night can motivate you to get things done at an appropriate time. Remember when you took naps as a kid and never really appreciated them? Well, you still can by taking 10 to 30 min naps when you have the time, like a quick recharge. You are still human, and humans needs their rest, so do yourself a favor and catch some Z’s.
Apply for Internships and Part-Time JobsIt’s never too early to apply for internships in your field or a part-time job to pay for school. Both look great on a resume and it gives you the experience to get ahead. Head over to your college’s or university’s career placement office and talk with them about options for internships and occupational opportunities.
Utilize a CalendarKeeping a personal calendar can be the difference between a heavenly time at college or hectic nightmare. A calendar is not just for plotting your class schedule, campus organizational meetings, and social events, but for organizing your bills and personal time to relax. This will keep all records and events in order, leaving one less thing for you to stress about.
Put More Effort into GradesCollege coursework classes are harder than those back in high school, so being on top of your grades is important. When you set up a set schedule, find time to put a few more minutes of extra studying. Gather a study group and meet at least once a week. Ask your teacher for any help or questions. Go to your college’s learning center and find yourself a tutor. Grades can get better, it all depends on you. Change is all part of the circle of life (cliché, I know) but it doesn't have to be intimidating or frustrating. The thing about resolutions is that they’re your own, so how you go about them is entirely up to you. Whether it takes a month or all year, it’s all about changing and improving you. So, by taking that first step and promising to make a difference, you’re already on your way to a great year in 2015.
