From Our Readers: 7 Things You Should Start Doing Even Before 2017 Begins
Yes, you read that right. Why not start early on your New Year's resolutions so that there's a legit new year and new you when 2017 rolls in?
- Get enough sleep.
Rest should be a priority. Wondering why you're always tired during the day and why your pimples are popping out everywhere? Staying awake until the wee hours of the morning isn't good for your body. Our body needs to regenerate and sleep so we should try our best to get rest during those early hours. Start sleeping early by setting an alarm for sleeping and an alarm for waking up, and make sure you get 6 to 8 hours of good sleep.
- Stop being late.
Whether it's for school, for work, or for a date, please make it a habit to be on time. If you have morning appointments, wake up early so you can make it on time. If you can't make it on time, make it to your meetings earlier than the time you set.
- Start saving.
If you've been trying to save but you always end up spending your money, maybe starting with a small amount like P20 or P50 can help. It may not sound much, but a little really does go a long way. If you can, ask your parents some help so you can open a savings account. Set aside some part of your allowance for your savings.
- Start eating healthy.
