3. Do something that scares you
If you want to build courage and develop confidence, start doing something that scares you.
I know it is very scary to face your fears but face them. Start small by writing them on a page and take tiny actions.
4. Exercise for at least 20 minutes
Most students may not have time to hit the gym for hours but a short burst (20 minutes) of daily exercise is an essential healthy habit for every student. Every student can find 20 minutes in their day to exercise.
Trust me, you’ll find that you’re more energetic and you'll fall sick less often too when you exercise for at least 20 minutes daily.
5. Update your calendar with important events and key dates
If you love planning things and want to remember important dates and events, start updating your calendar.
A calendar is an excellent way to stay on schedule. You can use any physical calendar or Google calendar to record exam dates, assignments and projects submission deadlines and semester breaks, etc.

6. Get ten minutes of sun every day
Don’t spend your entire day cooped up inside because there are numerous benefits of getting some sun every day.
It enhances sleep quality, reduces the risk of certain cancers, and also improves brain function.
7. Get at least seven to eight hours of sleep every night
Getting seven to eight hours of sleep every night is a healthy habit but according to research, many students struggle to incorporate this good habit into their lives.
When you get enough sleep you feel better, refreshed, and energetic.
8. Be at least five to ten minutes early for every appointment
Arriving late for an appointment is a bad idea. Nobody loves a person who is always late, lethargic, and doesn't respect time.
It’s a very good habit for students to arrive five to ten minutes early for every appointment.
9. Don’t multitask
Most of us believe that multitasking saves our time but this is not true. To an extent yes, you can multitask but not in every case.
Focus on one task at a time because research shows that multitasking affects productivity negatively.
Trust me you’re just tricking yourself if you think you’re more productive by multitasking.
10. Learn something new every day
As a student, our main focus is to excel in our studies but we forget that life doesn't have a syllabus.
As a student trying to learn something outside the syllabus. Read a good book, take online classes to learn new skills, etc.
11. Give yourself a small reward after you complete any major task
We have this misconception that the reward system only works for young children but it works for everyone.
It gives you the motivation to work through a task in a timely manner.
