Hello everyone! 2022 is here and this could be your year to achieve bigger and better than ever.
Consider what you truly want to do this year: achieving a first in your university assignments, graduating with a 2:1, landing your first graduate job, or even enrolling to university. Setting a goal clarifies what you want to do and directs your efforts toward achieving and obtaining it.
Writing down at least three goals will help you keep on track; if you meet them before the end of the year, you can always set new ones or expand existing ones. When it comes to YOUR ambitions, there are no restrictions; they are yours, and there should be no obligation from society.
Take some time for yourself:
Schedule some time for yourself, take yourself out; even a short stroll or trip to the shop might improve your mental health. Seeing friends or family outside to socialise, play board games, or have lunch together is a great way to get away from screens.
If you’re a workaholic, create a target for yourself to finish your work and turn off your emails at a certain time. It’s fine to say no to extra work; we’re not robots. However, ensure that your lifestyle is balanced. Getting your sleeping habits in order is one of the most effective methods to improve your mental and physical health.
Working and progress:
We must work hard and make progress toward the goals we choose. It’s all about getting things done, so make a to-do list every morning and you’ll discover you can get a lot more done. Make your work fascinating to you – we all learn in different ways, so figure out yours and link it to how you work.
Our enemy is procrastination, and we will conquer it! If work appears to be too large to handle, break it down into 10-minute tasks and take 5-to-10-minute breaks whenever it is accomplished. A reward could be a tasty treat, for completing minimal tasks. Followed by a larger treat once you’ve performed a larger activity or concluded your week by finishing all your tasks. You are in control of your own future, doing these duties will advance you further.
It’s much easier said than done, but once you see the results, you’ll want to keep going and push yourself even more.
Reach out for opportunities:
Experience is crucial at any level of your university career. If you know exactly where or what you want to do, message people on LinkedIn to see if they’d be interested in recruiting you as an intern or on a placement. On the other hand, if you’re not sure what you want to do, doing more research and reaching out again can be beneficial. If you work somewhere you’re unsure about, it’s all part of the learning process, and you’ll learn to try something new.
How we can help you:
Studenteer connects you with fantastic organisations where you may volunteer and improve your abilities while also demonstrating your commitment. While studying, you can choose any chance that meets your professional needs, or alternative work that demonstrates your ability to organise. Volunteering may also be a fantastic opportunity to discover yourself and figure out what you truly want to accomplish; you might be studying or working on something you don’t particularly enjoy – this is a great way to diversify your skills.
