As we approach the halfway point in the semester (TIME FLIES), we should not only take the time to reflect on how the semester is going so far, but we should also decide how we want the rest of the semester to pan out. Are there events that you have been wanting to go to but haven’t had the chance? Have you skipped the Saturday morning brunch because you didn’t manage your time well? Actively make changes to improve in these final 8 weeks.
I highly recommend that you don’t just think about what changes you want to make, but write them down! When you write something down, you feel more accountable for your actions. Are there rewards that you can give yourself as you progress towards your goals? Outside of school, what lifestyle changes do you want to make for yourself? Are you content with your current sleep schedule or do you wish you had a few extra hours to snooze? Talk about your goals with some of your friends and see if they have any goals for themselves. If you find that you have a common interest or goal, see if you can achieve it together! Document your journey and you’ll feel great working with your friends to improve your life! Whether you want to lose weight, get better grades, or walk into a room more confidently, your goals and dreams are valid.
