Happy New Year!
A new year is a great place for a fresh start, to put anything in place you’ve been meaning to especially after a Christmas break.
Here a few ideas to get you started…
– Stop Procrastinating Now
If you are a student, or just a human in general and don’t procrastinate in some way… teach us.
What is it that makes you procrastinate?
What can be done about it?
Make a list the things you avoid doing and try and cross each one off without going off to make a cup of tea or scrolling through Insta. Leave your phone in another room and have water and snacks handy.
We are not saying follow the masses and start a January diet here, oh no. It’s just that we could all be a little healthier, couldn’t we?
Our brains and bodies need goodness and water, lots of water.
Take a water bottle around with you at all times and instead of grabbing some chips on the way home, try baked homemade ones instead. Walk to your lecture instead of getting the bus.
Making a few concious choices makes all the difference.
– Be Organised
Whether you are a first year or second or third, those first few months of a term are usually a blur of settling in and socialising.
Start the new year by actively being more organised your uni work, job (if you have one) and your social calendar.
Have a diary/calendar handy at all times and write EVERYTHING in it you need/want to do. This will help you avoid double booking yourself or simply just doing too much.
– Spend Less Money
Living alone can be a huge shock to the system as well as your bank balance.
If you really want to spend less this year think of a few simple changes you can make…
– Stop buying takeaway tea/coffee. It’s so overpriced and really adds up quickly if you are getting more than one a week. Invest in travel coffee mug and make coffee at home and take it with you.
– Do you really need to buy a new item of clothing EVERY time you go out? No, we don’t think so either.
– Don’t buy that takeaway pizza, have a cheaper pre-bought one ready for when you get home.
– Walk to your lectures instead of public transport.

Where do you want to go?
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
