Therefore I have put together a list (because we all love lists) of things that I really want to try to do from now on. Think of it like a set of New Year's resolutions but in October and I am actually planning to carry them out - not just half-heartedly suggest that I am going to do these out of guilt at not actually wanting to bother to do anything.
Eat Proper Meals
This isn't really a 'biggie' but I think it makes all the difference. Since starting uni I have lost some weight - which has concerned my family but, to be honest, it wouldn't have hurt to lose some anyway - but this was only because I just wasn't eating. I had no appetite and could not be bothered to eat. Since then I have started eating a bit more but the only set meal I have is the evening one that the uni provides - in the day I just snack. So, I am going to try to have set meals - including breakfast which I never have - and hopefully this will do me the world of good.
Eat More Fruit & Veg
Why didn't anyone tell me that fruit and veg is so expensive and goes off really quickly?! I struggle to eat one portion of fruit and veg a day. My new aim is to eat one apple/orange/whatever every day and get veg at the evening meal too.
Spend Less Time Online
I have been spending way too much time on my phone lately. I need to procrastinate less and set certain times when I allow myself to use my phone.
Although this seems to contradict above point, I have been seriously neglecting my blog lately. So, the time I do spend online, I want to be used productively rather than just scrolling through Facebook or Twitter.
Go For a Walk Every Day
I have got into the bad habit lately of staying in way too much for my own good. I want to try to go for a walk every day - be it to the park or wherever and have some time away from my phone and just think and look at things.
Read The Necessary Books & Do My Uni Work
I am paying £9000 a year for the privilege of coming to university so I really do need to knuckle down and make it worth it. I need to spend more time doing my work and actually do the reading that I am set. This is probably the most important one.
I hope that this rather unconventional post was enjoyable to read and I haven't bored you too much.
I have a much more fun lifestyle post coming up and maybe a haul too, so be warned!
