Sticking to Your New Year Resolution
We have all heard the saying “New Year, New Me” when it comes to bringing in a new year. While this is a great time to make changes that you believe will be beneficial to your life going forward, there are a lot of times when sticking to your resolutions becomes harder than expected. The sky is the limit when it comes to these resolutions but making them realistic gives you the greatest chance of sticking to them. Below are some tips to help you stick to your New Year Resolution.
While this time of year is often filled with joy and excitement, it can also be one of the most stressful times of the year. As you are preparing for finals and planning your holiday activities, whether it’s a trip home or staying put, learning how to deal with these stresses will help you have a more enjoyable holiday.
Here are some tips to help reduce stress this holiday season:
• Let your family know about your plans and preferences for the holiday before you arrive home. Listen to their preferences and plans as well.
With the start of November we experience cooler weather and the end of days filled with enjoying outdoor activities in the hot sunshine. We also know that both College mid-terms and Holiday break’s are upon us which means study groups and late night cram sessions become a way of life. It is important to take breaks between all of this though to let your brain have some much needed R&R. Below is a list of all new movies & television shows coming to Netflix and Hulu in the month of November.
October is the time of year when the weather is just the right temperature and the holiday season is just getting started.
So how do you celebrate the month of October? Need some inspiration on how to make this month all it is cracked up to be? Check out our list of activities to try out in October!

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, it is official…summer is coming to an end.
Hopefully you finished filling your bucket list, because as the fun of summer sets in the distance the fun of the new school year rises.
It seems like it wasn’t that long ago that the start of school was a combination of the excitement of back to school shopping and the anxiety of a new classroom.
Things are different now, aren’t they? This year there might not be a new wardrobe coming (and if there is it’s filled with Bearcat gear) and you’re in a new classroom every hour.
Every time summer gets here, we can’t wait to get our bucket list made that will include all our best adventures for the summer, trying out new things, and living life carefree. With less than 30 days left of summer, for most of us, now is the perfect time to fit in any last minute bucket list items you had! Summer ’17 has been all about time spent with family and friends, preparing ourselves for the upcoming school year, and doing things we never thought possible last summer. All in all, it has been one for the books! Time to go out with a bang!
It’s still early in the semester! Start it off right by following these tips:
• Set Goals
• Read the Syllabus! You will know ahead of time what to study so you can be prepared for lectures.
• Don’t skip class. This might sound obvious, but it’s so easy to sleep in instead of going to class. Don’t do it!
• Leave time to relax! You need time to de-stress, so make sure you leave time in your schedule.
• Exercise. Exercise gives you energy and puts you in a better mood. Why not take some time to use the gym here at University Lofts?
