Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said: "As for the future, it is not a matter of foreseeing it, but of making it possible. Let the dream devour your life, so that life does not devour your dream. Make your life a dream and a dream a reality. As the New Year approaches and we make new resolutions, this quote rings true. After spending two years, of the less common ones, our psychological and physical state has taken a hit. So let's close out this year 2021 and reset the counter to start 2022 off on the right foot. And because at KidleeAs we are also part of the "new year, new me" team, we have prepared a top 2022 resolution for you to adopt.
Resolution 2022: how to do it right
The mistake we all make when making resolutions is to aim too high. It is useful to remember that Rome was not built in a day and that it is little by little that the bird makes its nest. Yes, we have a few too many quotes here. But that's just to tell you that you have to go step by step. If you're a real groundhog, you can't just jump to 6 a.m. wake-up calls. Same thing for physical activity, if you're a Netflix & Chill fan, going to the gym 5 times a week might be hard to do.
So, the advice we have for you is to go slowly but surely and to establish levels for your resolutions. Also, another tip to integrate when you make your resolutions is to replace an activity that did not bring you anything in 2021 by an activity on your resolution list.
Now let's get down to business, what resolutions to adopt for 2022?
Resolution 2022: a classic, take up sports!
The end of the year often rhymes with a succession of parties. Therefore, we can't wait to take care of our body again. Don't hesitate to find out about sports activities near your home, so that you don't feel lazy to go. And also, see what your university offers as activities, because these will be free and therefore no excuse not to go!
Join a university club and association
At the beginning of the school year, you were really motivated, you thought you would make a lot of friends and go out a lot, but in the end, you were left alone? Don't panic! The best way to meet people is to join a club. On the other hand, you can also join an association. This way, you will be able to meet new people while volunteering, it's all good!
Learn a new thing
Remember when you said you wanted to take the TOEIC? Or when you said you wanted to learn to play the piano? Or when you wanted to learn to code? Well, in the 21st century, no more excuses! Coursera, Edx, Udemy will be your best friends to keep this resolution! And don't forget the one and only Mr. B.Youtube.
Taking care of yourself
Being a student also means a lot of stress. So for this new year, we advise you to take some time for yourself. Set aside a little time during the day to do little things that make you happy. There are many ways to treat yourself, so we count on you to find the one that suits you best.
Manage your expenses
Ah, the end of the month troubles, when you are a student, it's something you know every month! So for this year, we're counting on you to optimize your budget. By the way, if you need money and you live in the Paris area, why not become a babysitter with Kidlee? Moreover, the registration is done in no time, you just have to click here. Also, we accompany our great baby sitters through various workshops, trainings and playful contents. So that they can offer the best home childcare in their turn.
Resolution 2022: read at least one book a month
Baraka Obama said, "Reading is important. If you can read, then the whole world opens up to you". Need we say more to convince you that this is a great resolution to add to your list?
