5 Achievable New Year’s Resolutions

 It’s a new year and a fresh start. New year’s resolutions are always fun for a hot minute until you actually have to do it and it takes way too much effort to keep up. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it at all. Keep your resolutions small and achievable and celebrate the small wins in life.

1. Make some new friends

This one’s so easy! You’re about to start uni (and maybe move into College..??). There will be new friend candidates everywhere you turn — be it the guy asking where the lecture theatre is, or the girl sitting next to you in class, or hey, why not even try a new circle! And if you’re going to be living in College, you best believe you’ll be making loads of friends here.

Volunteer

2. Volunteer

Time to give back to the community! There are so many ways to get involved and UWA Guild Volunteering has made it so easy. Events, sports, community, tutoring — find what interests you and do what you love while doing some good! Wins all around!

3. Try something new

Learn about a new culture or language. Explore a new hobby or skill. Pick up Photoshop or coding or soccer! It’s totally ok to try something out and not end up liking it. All that matters is to give it a shot anyway!

4. Get moving

There is no excuse not to! A nice evening walk along Mat Bay, or a run along Mounts Bay Road, or hike up to King’s Park. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a beginner or a gym junkie. UWA Sport also offers gym memberships, which are included in your college fees! And on top of that, UWA Sport organises Social Sport Leagues all year round for all sorts of sports. So gather all your friends (they don’t have to be in UWA!) and form a team for some good ol’ healthy fun! And for the college kids, we have inter-college sport competitions too!

5. Spend less time glued to your phone

Have a conversation, talk about your hopes and dreams, favourite music, least favourite music! Go out exploring! Plan a great road trip down South! Try a new cafe down Hampden Road! The real world is your oyster.
