This year I've decided that rather than set a goal for a specific number on the scale or a pant size, I've set a new kind of goal. In 2017 I want to learn how to love exercise. I want to be one of those people who looks forward to going on a run, or meeting their friend at a fitness class.
I love going shopping in the new year (I mean come on, THE SALES!) But normally when I shop after the new year I end up buying a lot of random trendy things that I end up barely wearing and eventually donating. This year I've been planning to buy some much needed essentials.
Rather than making a resolution this year, I'm setting some goals for myself. I always feel like resolutions are telling yourself that you can't do something anymore instead of being something positive that you can look forward to.
Girlbosses are not the hardest to shop for (they pretty much love all stationary, mugs, and gift cards to every coffee shop) but if you're looking to get something that she'll get some extra use out of, look no further!
My freshman year I was so done and tired and I felt like I had had a cold for 3 months that I barely prepared for finals. I studied, but I didn't prepare, and I didn't do well. I didn't know how. Preparing physically and mentally for finals helps make studying for finals so much less stressful!
