Law School Hints and News

Welcome to the New Year!

To get a jump on the new semester, you may want to grab a new calendar and create a comprehensive daily schedule for yourself and stick to it. Scheduling has been found to help creativity and boost success and has been used by some of the most influential people in history.

While scheduling, be sure to include non-work items such as sleep and exercise. Without sleep, the effort that you put into your projects will not be as efficient and you will not be able to retain information that you are trying to learn. Exercise not only conveys health benefits, it boosts mental efficiency and reduces stress.

This year, resolve to boost your personal and professional life by taking a few minutes and setting a routine for yourself. You might be surprised how much of a return that investing a few minutes to plan things out can bring.
