College students are among the busiest people on the planet. In order to avoid the stress, make an attempt to establish an easy-to-follow routine. Routines will improve your self-discipline and are crucial to staying motivated. Getting into the habit of working out regularly, ensuring you have enough study time and maintaining a proper sleep schedule will only positively impact your school year.
Don’t Overexert Yourself:
Listen to your body and acknowledge when something doesn’t feel quite right. If you feel a cold coming on then get some extra rest or take some vitamin C. If something feels off and it persists for weeks on end, make sure to seek proper care or help to avoid problems worsening. Your body knows when something is off. Make sure you are getting the nutrients, vitamins and water you need to fuel yourself each day.
Throw some Snacks in your Backpack:
Snacking throughout the days helps contribute to maintaining an organized mind! Time is of the essence during the day to day grind of a college student. There isn’t always an extra minute to stop and grab food from a vending machine or convenience store. Keeping multiple ready-made grab-and-go snacks in your bookbag can prevent students from spending frivolously or overindulging on unhealthy options. It is common for professors to allow eating in class, so throwing some granola bars, protein shakes and trail mix in your bag will most definitely come in handy!
Maintain a Positive Attitude: College can be a lot! Classes can be overwhelming; exams can be stressful and projects can be extremely draining. Maintaining mental health is just as important as maintaining physical health. Sometimes it is as simple as just getting out of bed in the morning and deciding to set your own bar for the day; choose happiness! There is always a silver lining. Focus more on the victories, as small
as they may be, instead of the losses! Your life will be more lucrative and enjoyable if you decide to choose a positive mindset.
Have a Weekend Strategy: Nightlife, sporting events and social gatherings are all fun perks to being a college student. Spending your weekends out late partying can be a blast, but there is often a turning point when casual entertainment can turn unhealthy. This is where you can implement a strategy to call it a night a few hours earlier, increase your water intake and make it a point to carefully choose who you socialize with. Late nights, unhealthy eating habits, irregular sleeping patterns, hanging out with toxic people and not staying properly hydrated can have a negative impact on the body. Don’t stray away from fun, just enjoy in moderation and make sure your life is well balanced in all aspects.
Picture Yourself at the Domain in 2020: Why NOW is the best time to secure your fall housing.
It’s a brand-new year and hopefully you’ve set some goals and have big things planned for 2020. One of those things should definitely be securing your fall housing sooner rather than later. We’re going to let you in on some tips to help you make the best decision you will make this year!
1.) The prices for fall housing are the LOWEST now! We’ve launched our lowest prices now and once those spots are gone, they’re gone, and the prices will only go up. So, in order to ensure you’re getting the best deal, plan ahead and sign your lease early.
2.) Early birds get the worm (or gift cards). For the first 20 signed for fall 2020, we’re giving away a $100 gift card PLUS reduced parking. And once again, when it’s gone, it’s gone. Just think of all the décor or snacks you can get for your new room!
3.) Signing early will guarantee you get the floorplan you want before they are sold out. Our floorplans are unique and pay homage to some of the people that helped make Cleveland what it is today. All rooms are fully furnished so they go fast. Come in early to get the room that best fits you!
We are excited to help you find your new home! Stop by or give us a call to tour our beautiful and historic building.
It’s almost the end of the semester! But that also means finals are coming up. Don’t let this get you too stressed. You can do a lot to stay on top of your agenda and totally dominate finals. Take a look at the following tips to get you ready for finals week:
1. Confirm the details
Sometimes your final exam is the same time as your usual class…but sometimes it can held at a different time or even a different room or lecture all. Double check your syllabus and make sure you know when and where your final is!
2. Get some sleep
We get it – all nighters are what college is all about, right? Well, you should really try and get some rest during this time of year. Your brain will perform better and you’ll feel much better if you can get in a normal nights’ rest. Plan ahead and study during the day so your evenings aren’t as stressful.
3. Stay Active
Need a break from studying? Move your body and get your blood flowing! Feel free to take a trip down the stairs or do a quick walk on the treadmill in our 24-hour gym. This will help you stay energized while you’re staring at all those notes.
4. Eat well
Yes, it’s convenient to order order delivery so you don’t have to get out. But remember, what you put in your body will impact how you perform during your study sessions and exams. Plan ahead and make some healthy snacks you can easily grab on the go.
5. Just for this week – be LESS social
Log out of Instagram and Twitter and focus on this one week of the semester. Your social media accounts will still be there and you won’t feel like you missed a beat since most people will probably be posting about finals, which will stress you out even more. Take a break from those social networks and you’ll realize how much time you actually have!
We’re cheering for you and know you will do great this finals season. Best of luck! Let us know if we can do anything for you!
