Road Map for December: Freshmen

As winter approaches, many students have a hard time staying motivated with less sunlight and colder weather. If you find this season challenging, try to find strategies to keep yourself going. Perhaps it’s making New Year’s resolutions or some other kinds of goals for yourself. Keep in mind that you’ll increase the likelihood of meeting your goal if you tell someone about it–maybe you have a friend or family member who can be your partner in the activity, or can help keep you accountable to yourself.I want students to be motivated but I don’t want them to be driven in a way that becomes unhealthy. Take the time you’re given during the upcoming break to rest, recharge and do things that are meaningful to you. Then you can come back to school in the new year with new energy to accomplish whatever you set out for yourself.
