For a fresh start to student life

Remember last year you said you would definitely do or not do something? Well, here is a list in case you don't remember

Schools and colleges have started and now is the perfect time for a fresh start. Remember, last year there were a couple of things which you thought you would do or won’t? In case you don’t remember, here is a checklist for you to rock your year!

Time to making some ground rules

No TV and social media until you complete your homework. Keep your phone away while studying, even better give to any elder of your house, ofcourse you can lock it though. When you make a ground list of things in advance, you are more prone to follow them up later.

Create a morning routine

Find out how much time you need to get up, freshen up, have your breakfast and get ready. Then you know exactly when you should get up and when you’ll be late.

Goal setting

Set some concrete goals for this year, like giving more time to maths, practicing football more, completing projects before time, etc. Write them down and stick in your room at a place where you’d keep a check on it.

No compromise with sleep

Scrolling down your Instagram feeds might be tempting, especially at night when you’re all alone. But the hard reality is that you do regret it the next morning or day. Sleep on time and when you would wake up fulfilling your sleep quota, you’d be ready to conquer the world.

Get some interesting stationery

If you’re a girl, invest in some cute stationery like boxes, pens, pencils, diaries, notebooks, etc and if you are a boy how about your favourite avenger or marvel hero? This will make studying and making notes fun and exciting.

Planning and Journaling

One of the best things about being a student is setting up your planner, Isn’t it? If you haven't got the bullet journal craze, now is a perfect time. There are plenty of videos on how to create, design and maintain a journal on Youtube.

You also have to find your ways of relieving stress as it is an inseparable part of student life. It could be talking to your best friend, going for a walk, listening to music, or anything else that is not much distracting and yet helps you feel relaxed.

Playlist to cheer you up on your bad days

Dealing with bad days can be as easy as listening to music!

We all have rough days, with or without a reason. And we all have different ways to deal with it. Many researchers claim that music has a prominent effect on our moods and emotions, mainly because of brain dopamine regulation, which is a neurotransmitter involved in emotional behaviour and mood regulation. Moreover, there are plenty of researches which back the fact that songs and their lyrics have a dominant effect on our moods and can turn a bad day into a cheerful or at least a calmer one.

Here are few of the prominent findings of various researches conducted by different universities to demonstrate the effect of music on the mood of teenagers.

  • Music gives a sense of belonging to teens
  • Creating music provides the freedom of being themselves; to be unique; to be something they thought they could never be; to be comfortable and relaxed
  • Music helps adolescents to release or control emotions and aids in coping with difficult situations such as peer pressure, substance abuse, pressures of study and family, etc.
  • Teenagers believe that developing musical skills and performance is important as it paves the way to musical opportunities
  • Teens believe that music is an integral part of life and that music reflects their culture and society
  • Teens feel that playing music teaches self-discipline such as “there are payoffs if you practice and stick with something”
  • Adolescents are of the opinion that playing music diminishes boundaries between people of different ethnic backgrounds, age groups, and social interests

Here are a few songs along with their selective powerful lines that you should have in your playlist. Or even better create a playlist called “Bad day”, “cheer up”, etc.
 

  • “Bulletproof” by la roux
  •  “Uncloudy Day” by Willie Nelson
  •  “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child
  • “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey
  • “Un Poco Loco” by Anthony Gonzalez and Gael Garcia Bernal
  • “Latch” by Disclosure ft. Sam Smith
  • “Another Day in the Sun” by LA LA Land
  • “Girl from the North Country” by Johnny Cash + Bob Dylan
  • “Smile” by Lily Allen
  • “Lovely” by Billie Eilish ft. Khalid
  • “Have it all” by Jason Mraz
  • “I like it” by J Balvin, Cardi B and Bad bunny
  • “Let It Be” by the Beatles
