The secrets to smashing New Year’s resolutions

Raise your hand if you’re guilty of setting a New Year’s resolution that you forgot about before summer finished…we see you. And we’ve all got our hands up, because it’s SO damn hard to stick to goals for yourself when work, family, day-to-day and our phones demand so much of our time.

 

With that said, we bring you a fool-proof way to smash your New Year’s resolution…

Choose a positive goal

Make your resolution something positive – not lose weight, but get healthier and understand your body better; not stop wasting money, but learn how to invest smartly – you get the gist. Giving yourself something positive to work towards is motivating and means you’re working forwards, not in reverse.

You could decide to learn Japanese, or get better at photography, start coding, or playing the guitar!

Get someone else involved

Having someone dedicated to motivating you through the process of learning, and guiding you along the way is by far the most effective way to stay on track – think of it like personal training for your brain! So this way, you don’t even have to worry about sticking to your resolution, we’ll make sure it happens.

Learn the new definition of ‘sun smart’.

Put our two previous tips together, add in some world-class tutors – and you’ve got the perfect recipe for resolution success – it’s called Eurekly.

Eurekly means you can learn whatever you like from wherever you are this summer – no excuses. All that’s left to do is book a free trial class at eurekly.com and start soaking up the skills.

3 Reasons why Summer is the best time to learn.

Believe it or not, summer is the perfect time to learn something new!

‘But summer is for chilling out!’, you say. That’s exactly why it’s the perfect time to focus your brain on a fun new skill. The best thing is that, thanks to Eurekly’s online tutoring, you can be learning wherever you’re holidaying this summer.

Still not convinced you should be flexing that brain right now? Here’s a few reasons why…

Reason One:

A fresh place makes for a happy brain

In summer, we’re all over the place – the season is exciting, new and refreshing. That environment right there is exactly what makes your brain feel motivated to take in brand new information. So, make the most of it. With our international online tutors you can be learning at the beach, poolside… or wherever you’ve got an internet connection!

Reason Two:

Learning loves a mind with no to-do list

You heard it here first clever people – it’s not your fault you can’t remember stuff! You may have heard people booing multitasking lately and for a good reason too. Multitasking sounds like it’s awesome, but it means you’re not giving anything your full attention. Without full attention, your poor brain doesn’t file and store information properly – in fact it throws most of it out the window. The good news? When you’re indulging in the bliss that is holiday mode, that to-do list is short, and your mind is ready to dive into something with full concentration!

Reason Three:

So many hours and you only need one!

Now that you’re not stuck in an office or a classroom for eight hours a day, you’ve got time galore to sunbathe and exercise your brain with something you’ve always wanted to try. It’s proven that short bursts of learning are the best way to retain information, so take that in your stride and learn at top-speed by just doing an hour every now and then while you’ve got the extra minutes. Easy.

So, how do you start doing this awesome summer learning thing?
