This tips are very helpful in making students remember a few important things about college and I believe that it will help to review all of the tips and follow them this term and see what the outcome will be.

The first tip that they provide is that we need to remember what we as students came to college for in the first place which is to learn. It states that although having fun is good, we need to always remember that school comes first.

The second tip is about setting realistic goals. It says that we need to begin the term or semester setting goals that we can achieve and it could be in anything such as working out more or better grades. It also adds in that when we achieve these goals we will feel better and we will do better overall.

The third tip is to stay positive, don't bring yourself down when things don't go your way, which is something that made me really interested in this article because that is something i do often when things do not go as i had planned or if i don't do well on a test or quiz. Staying positive is important because negativity can cause you to feel self doubt and may even cause you to give up, which is never a good thing to do.

The fourth tip is linked with time management. It states that the best thing for college students to do is to manage their time wisely and making sure that you make time for important things like projects and assignments is the best thing you can do to assure that it gets done on time. This will not only make it easier for you to get things in on a specific deadline, but it will also help reduce the stress of trying to finish projects at the very last minute. The final tip that this article has listed is believing in yourself and telling yourself that you can achieve anything that you put your mind to.

This is the best form of motivation, because if you can motivate yourself to have an amazing term and that you can do anything that you set your mind to then Ibelieve that it will come true.

I really resonate with this article. It had a lot of information that could help me stay focus through spring term. After each term I get happy that the stress is over, but then comes the next term making it more challenging to stay focus and work up that brain again.

I think the most meaningful tip that stood out was think positive because sometimes we wear ourselves down and it's hard to think good about things when you are constantly in school mode. It helps also to remind yourself why you are doing the things you are doing and what you expect to get out of going to school and doing well. Ultimately the far most important is believing in yourself, and continuing to accomplish and complete all academic classes.

This site talks about how to stay motivated during the spring semester after a long winter break. These five tips are simple, but very helpful.

The first, remembering why we are in college, is important. We sometimes get overwhelmed and distracted. We need to remind ourselves why school is important to us and our future. The second, setting realistic goals, is important because it helps motivate us if we can accomplish our goals. The third, think positive, is important because it is easy to get overwhelmed and give up when we do poorly. Practicing time management is important because when we set aside specific times for certain tasks we will be more focused and work harder. Lastly, believing in yourself is important because you can do whatever you set your mind to.

Simple and to the Point!
