Quick Tips for Starting Fresh this School Year
Staying organized is one of the best ways to help start fresh and keep your mental sanity throughout the semester. Trash last year’s planner and treat yourself to a new one; it is a new school year, after all. Buy yourself some new notebooks and binders and keep your dorm room clean and uncluttered- you’ll be amazed at what a difference it can make.
Change Up Your Hairstyle
One of the most empowering ways to let go of the past is to change up your hair. It may seem simple, but cutting off a few inches or changing the color of your hair can be extremely inspiring. Get creative!
Discover New Interests
Today was Ramapo’s annual club fair; if you got the chance to go, you saw that there are over 90 clubs to choose from on campus. It may seem overwhelming at first, but you can use this as an opportunity to see what kinds of clubs you are attracted to and find out where your true interests and passions lie. Club fair isn’t just meant for freshman either; it’s never too late to join!
Treat Every Day like a New Year
You don’t need to wait for New Year’s to make resolutions. Every single day is an opportunity to put the past behind you and create new goals and challenges for yourself. Treat every day like a fresh start and you’re on your way to having the best semester yet!
