Hello Socratica Friends! We’re here to help you be a great student! Part of being a great student is recognizing what you need to improve about yourself and your study habits. New Year’s (and the start of a new school year) is a great time to take stock and make some New Year’s Resolutions about what you want to change.
We make New Year’s Resolutions – do you? In this video, we’ll give you some tips to make it more likely that you’ll succeed this year in keeping your resolutions. We’ll also talk about some common myths and misconceptions about forming habits.
Are you going to make a New Year’s Resolution this January or at the start of a new school term? Tell us about it in the comments! We want to see you live your best life! Let’s help each other stay strong and improve in the New Year!
If you are looking for a beautiful daily reminder to help you keep your resolution, we recommend you check out the gorgeous engineering project “The Every Day Calendar” from Simone Giertz on Kickstarter.
