12 Practical Tips for Creating Better Habits

 

We all talk about ‘de cluttering’ our life. De cluttering doesn’t really refer to the physical things, rather try de clutter toxins by eating healthy, de clutter your life by being organized, de clutter your mind by staying positive and reading, start exercising to de clutter your body. Many of us start these all things and even succeed in sticking to them for few days. But then we tend to get lazy and we start to sway back to normal routines.

Have you ever wished that there was software that you could download into your system and your system would automatically follow the instructions blindly?  Well, here is a software for you to stick to create habits and then stick to them for long!

 

Start Small

Most of us want to start from four gym sessions, and getting from size 12 to 8 overnight. It is practically impossible to manage 5 extra minute of exercise the next day. Keep small achievable targets to keep motivation alive!  

 

Make it Daily

Whatever your goal is make sure that you do it every day. Make it a part of your routine. Exercise, eating healthy can be done daily. Organizing on the other hand, can go tricky. Divide seven days of the week to organize seven nooks of your house. So that each place gets a time once a week!

 

Self – Reminder

Initial two weeks into the routine and then you may forget about the new regime. To keep yourself reminding, set reminders on your phone and check mark the everyday list to feel accomplished!

 

Get a Partner

This will help greatly. Having a buddy on the same regime can help you check each other’s targets. You may also find a person to talk about the same stuff to and share relevant experiences. 

 

Replace Needs

Do something positive in the empty time. For example if you are giving up on watching a series, utilize that time in book reading or go on a walk. Don’t allow yourself empty time slots. It will make you long the old habit back. 

 

Write it Down

Writing down the goals will help you clear your intentions. It will also help you to refer back and see where the problem lied and how far you have come to overcome it.

 

Know the Benefits

Know the benefits of making the respective change. Research on internet or read a book regarding it. This could also motivate you further.

 

Plan Smarter

Make use of project management software such as Trello, to better plan your workflow for each goal.

 

The Art of Goal Setting 

Learn how to set realizable goals, for example, set SMART goals. A SMART goal is specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-sensitive, meaning you have a clear way to measure success and a time-line to do so in.

 

Know the Harm

Know the downsides of the habit that you are giving up. While doing so, remember its never too late to revert.

 

Do it for Yourself

Be firm on doing it for you solely. Weak guilt and empty resolutions don’t work.

 

Stay Consistent

If you are trying to take up on a habit it is advisable to do it at the same time every day. Doing this for continuous 30 days will make you miss it on the 31st day.

 

Celebrate

Celebrate your small wins. Treat yourself on achieving little milestones. It will be greatly helpful.

 

Befriend Supporters

Surround yourself with supporters who will talk positive to boost your motivation. Negative people and negative remarks will bring your morale down! 

 

So if you are on the brink to start some positive habits, give this a read to get amazing tips before you begin. If you have something more to add, leave it in the comments box or follow us at insta @stcathys to add to our follower community!

A Few Hacks to Make the #StudentLife a Little Cheaper

Being a student and with income like next to nothing its pretty hard to afford lavish quite just a lifestyle.

It is true that monthly expenses go quickly and little savings can go a long way. Here are few hacks for you to make your life a little cheaper!

 

Cook Your Own Meals

Try buying grocery and cooking your own meal rather than eating out every day! For worst days locate cheapest eat outs around the vicinity. You may be able to find places which provide meal as low as $5. 

 

Get Student Discounts:

Student discounts are available almost everywhere. You just have to ask for them. For few, it could be a little shy some to ask for – but, what could be better than saving a few bucks?

 

Thrift Shopping:

Find a nearest thrift store and try to find commodities from there. Trust me there is no happiness greater than saving a dime with a little hassle.

 

Online Shopping:

Online shopping can get you great discounts. You get to escape the commute expenses. There are quite a few online websites that offer almost everything at great prices and that too with free shipping option! You just have to search for it. 

 

Make Use of Coupons:

Get and USE any discount coupons that you find around. There is no utter shame in redeeming even if it saves you a cent. Install apps that notify about the discounts and coupons for all types of shopping.

 

BIY – Brew It Yourself! 

One can simply not operate without coffee. Rather than buying every morning from a store if you brew it yourself, it will save you almost $1100 per anum. You don’t believe it? Do the Math and thank us later!

 

Try Fixing Stuff Yourself:

Burnt wire or laptop messing? Try www.fixit.com and save all those bucks by fixing almost everything yourself.

 

Décor Your Montreal Student Residence Room in a Budget

Find sales before going back to school. Pick up sheets and pillows from clearance. You may get individual pack of cutlery rather than buying a whole set of it. Check out our article on how to spice up your Montreal student residence room on a budget.

 

 Vouch for Hand-Me-Downs

It’s official, These are the Top 10 Reasons to Start University in a New City

 

As soon as the high school  come to a close, a series of sending in university applications start to take a toll on your everyday life. But once acceptances start pouring in, isn’t it the happiest day of your life? Longing to get into a good university is a dream on its own, but what if the university is entirely at a new city? Does the thought of living on your own makes you excited? Or it scares you the core? Here are top ten reasons to start university in a new city.

Take the Chance:

This is one a million chance that one should never miss. You will have your whole life to move to and fro and travel. But consider this time as with the “least responsibilities”. Life is all about your own self at this point in time. Tuition and living gets paid through the loans and grants rest it is all about being a free bird and party.

 

Fresh Start:

Forget about all the old strings and high school embarrassments that had taken you down in past. Move on with confidence with new people new surroundings, new environment and with a new mindset and be a person that you would have wanted to be all your life. Now can be the time to shut doors on old relationships and breath in a fresh breath of air.

 

Matching up with True Friends:

All our lives, living in a small town, we seldom get to choose relationships. The same people whom you started Montessori with end up graduating after twelve long years. There must have been hardly any subtractions or additions. Now is the time to make new stronger connections, where you can pick and choose according to your own taste.

 

Independence:

You get to experience firsthand independence. Get to make your all major and minor decisions on your own. Choose to cook or get food delivered. Let the laundry sit in or wash it daily. Take all the courses together or wait for summer to set in. All these decisions will be for you to make!

 

Gain Confidence:

The sense of unfamiliarity and the fear of being alone will really force your character to strengthen and you’ll become so much more self-reliant because of it. Get to gain self reliance and give your confidence a booster shot!

 

Adaptive:

Living away prepares you for unforeseen. Since you get to live in unfavorable conditions and you have to move your butt out of your comfort zone to get things done, it makes you more adaptive to situations.

 

Home Appreciation:

It is true that appreciation comes with deprivation! Being deprived of comfortable home room, mum made food, and the mere presence of family makes you learn a lot. You learn to be appreciative and thankful when you get to live away from all these bounties.

 

Win Parents Trust:

Living alone makes you responsible and wise. Since you will always be making right decisions for yourself, it will make your parents rely blindly on you! They will gain confidence in you and will trust all that you do in life.

 

Revive Affectionate Bonds:

There are chances that you don’t get along a family member. Moving out to a new city can make them realize a person’s standing as an important family member in the house. Distance does wonders!

University

Be confident and take the chance, for life is lived freely only once. Have something more to add? Write to us in the comments section. Or follow us on @stcathys on instagram to let us know a new pro about moving out for university!
