Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.

  1. An Incredible Meditation App

Waking Up is simply amazing. It's based on science (not woo woo). It will positively change your life and show you how crazy our brains are.

Can't afford it? They'll give it to you for free - no questions asked. Just request a free account here. How cool is that.

  1. Happiness: The Science of Well-Being

The Science of Well-Being, is not only the most popular course at Yale, this course is also free to take. It will blow your mind by teaching you what in life will actually make you happy (as backed by science!). Spoiler Alert - marks are not one of them.

Check out this podcast about it. It will change your life, for the better. I can attest to that!

  1. Sleep!

Sleep is one of the most underrated activities students can do in order to maximize academic performance, stay healthy (mentally and physically, and simply just live a happier life.

You bet, sometimes life calls for burning the candle at both ends. If you're thinking the long-game however, getting 8-10 h of sleep is key. You'll learn faster, waste less energy, retain more of what you learn, and just feel better! Who doesn't want that.
