The Good And Bad Times

5 Jun

The times spent in college will forever remain to be engraved in our hearts or better still for most of the students. Despite the rough patches and misfortunes everyone gets a share of the cake, at least the sweet one. Everyone’s predicaments are different and exclusive depends mostly on their current status. Some have emotional problems, some financial misfits others carry their families’ burden to college. But all said and I am aware of a number of problems that are common to all students, challenges that in one way or another have to be overcame and dealt with. It’s so unfortunate that most of the students don’t receive a pre-college counsel on how to deal with these problems. These misfits get the young lads by surprise, when they are not prepared and you can bear me witness it’s not easy to deal with them.

For once college in its own right is challenging. When any slave gets freedom, they tend to over enjoy it at first. Well students join college after a long period of dealing with teachers who care, where they get notes and revise questions every now and then and only study for one final exam. It’s different when you have assignments to submit, projects to carryout and no one is following you around. The whole idea of last minute rush is a great problem. Secondly money and medium of exchange as economists call it. To acquire anything you will need it and by day the costs of everything are shooting. You will find students trying to fit in full time jobs to their curriculum timetables in order to afford some of the things they require for college. It results in reduced levels of concentration in class work, failure to undertake research and consequently reduced performance.

Keeping Yourself Happy

14 Jul

I attended my lower school classes at an institution where the saying ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’ was a mere formality. Instead, we were bundled up with loads of schoolwork and assignments that made us literally forget about ourselves. Now I’m over that experience, but I can’t help noticing a recurrence of that whole situation when the middle-aged adults, especially among the working class, according to their own will are overworking themselves to that same point of forgetting how important they really are, over anything else actually.

I recently got a chance to speak to a close friend of mine. She has made a great career for in writing services niche of business, specializing in writing essays for college and university students. Like many other women of her age, she felt that she was committing herself to so many tasks, way more than she could handle.

Managing her business all by herself was proving strenuous and when she developed backaches and migraines, she knew it was time to seek professional help. I met her at yoga class where she had been learning how to relax and gain composure after a long day’s work.

“I knew an essay writing service was where I could make a good career; I’ve always loved writing ever since I was a kid and I was afraid I would lose all that if I hadn’t come to my senses in time”

She went on to tell me the basics of having a normal happy life, some of which I didn’t even bother to notice of how important they really are! First on the list was sleeping. Well I sleep a lot, but there are those who just can’t fall asleep when they want to. Or if they do, it’s just a short, restless night. The solution to this problem is to establish a consistent sleeping pattern, checking what you eat just before bedtime and avoiding distraction during sleeping hours like light and noise.

Next were the eating habits. She pointed out that one should make sure to take enough food according to the correct proportions of nutrients to keep the body and the brain functioning at their best.

With all that in mind, she added that it is extremely important for one to find things that make him or her happy and do them quite often and be sure to create some free time for them. These may be taking a long walk, going for to the movies or vacation swimming and many more. That’s the secret.
