However, I also think that there’s no need to place yourself into a position where you’re forcing yourself to take on too many resolutions at once. You don’t need to jump right into new activities or routines, mindsets or the new ‘Lean in 15’ diet.

Healthy Lifestyle during Exams 

 

THE GAME IS ON.

Exams! Assignments! Projects! Oh no!

Christmas is just around the corner, which means exams are even closer, and it is most definitely not the most wonderful time of the year.
