Being a good person isn't always easy but these tips should help get you on your way.

1. Honesty: Try to be honest always without hurting someone's feelings if possible.

2. Cheating: Don't do it. Not on your spouse or your taxes.

3. Charity: Try to do something charitable when you can. This could be driving an elderly neighbor to the supermarket, volunteering at a soup kitchen or just writing a check to your favorite charity.

4. Drugs: Stay away from them. They are associated with bad behavior among many other things.

5. Words: Chose your words carefully. If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing "politely".

6. Helping Hands: This includes at home and at work. If you see someone who could use an extra hand, give it, even if you are tired and would rather just watch TV or take a nap.

7. Birthdays & Holidays: Remember these events with cards and phone calls to loved ones.

This is a very good system to keep contact with students 7X24. I congratulate this type of steps taken by our university authority and behind those who are related with this. I hope everybody should participate in social web to make successful and help to take one step ahead make digital university.

Common Forum / Find Your Way

Finding your way is knowing what you want from your life. This tends to make you reach your goals easier without wasting your energy in useless action.

1. Know yourself and seek self improvement. You can't improve yourself without knowing it first. To know yourself, you have to see how you act in different situations and what you should do to act better.

2. Know that to be specialized in one thing and know it well is more useful than knowing many things but not being professional in one of them.

3. Accept yourself. You can't be someone else if you tried. That will only waste your energy in useless action.

4. Start now. If you tend to postpone doing the right things, you will find yourself not doing any thing good, this is called self-deceit.

5. Don't make friends until you hope to them as you hope to yourself. This will make you happy and a way from envy.

6. Find what is your interests in life and know what makes you motivated.

7. Know what you are good at and try to improve your skills.

8. Relax and take it easy. Nothing perpetuates worrying than worry itself.

9. Do every thing in its right time as timing is very important in achieving your goals.

Common Forum / Add Meaning to Your Life
« on: April 24, 2012, 01:57:28 PM »
When something has meaning, it has a purpose; it is significant. Likewise, a life that has meaning feels purposeful and significant. Scientific studies have shown that those who feel their lives are meaningless are likely to suffer from depression and self-destructive tendencies, while those who feel their lives are meaningful are more likely to have a sense of joy and satisfaction with life. Adding meaning to life is not an exact science, but it is possible to develop a meaningful life for yourself if you are willing to put some time and consideration into the process. Follow these steps to add meaning to your life.

1. Contemplate your beliefs. Examining the nature of reality is a foundation for discovering your purpose in life, and only when you find a purpose will you feel a deeper meaning of life. Consider the following:

Higher power. Regardless of your religion (or lack thereof), a meaningful life involves understanding your role in something bigger, whether it be Christianity, mother nature or the universe.
Human nature. Consider how you feel about the positive and negative aspects of human nature, and what you believe about human equality or inequality. For example, you may believe that human beings are all basically the same, and that they all deserve love and understanding, or you may believe that human worth is individualistic, based on characteristics that you identify as valuable.

2. Assess your values. Decide what is important to you, in relation to the world as you believe it to be. Things like altruism, honesty, leadership, determination, love, conformity, professionalism, entertainment and wealth are just several varied examples of values that a person may subscribe to.

3. Identify your purpose. Take into account your beliefs and values, then decide how you may apply those to your lifestyle in a productive (purposeful) way. Your purpose is multi-dimensional, encompassing the many different aspects of your belief and value systems. For example, you may believe in a God and that all humans are inherently equal, and you may value education and sacrifice. Therefore, your purpose may be to teach others, spread your religion, be a student, advocate for human rights and contribute to helping the underprivileged.

4. Consider the 6 dimensions of wellness and how you might develop each in a way that will increase your feeling of purpose in life. Choose activities from each category that align with your purpose for a well-rounded approach to improving your life's meaning. Note that these categories overlap, and that it is possible to develop more than 1 dimension with the same activity.

    *Social wellness involves how you interact with people and how you relate to your community. Activities that fit into social wellness include developing new relationships and volunteering.
    *Spiritual wellness has to do with developing your sense of a higher power and defining your moral values. In order to find more meaning in life through spiritual wellness, you may opt to attend church, take a philosophy class or learn yoga.
    *Intellectual wellness involves expanding your knowledge, understanding and mental acuity. Any experience that requires you to learn something new or broaden your perspective, such as working towards a goal or going to school, will help develop your intellectual wellness.
    *Environmental wellness has to do with how you relate to your surroundings. To add to your purpose in life through environmental wellness, participate in activities like recycling, hiking and gardening.
    *Physical wellness encompasses your physical health and fitness. Develop greater physical wellness by exercising and eating healthy foods.
    *Emotional wellness applies to your self esteem and how you handle life's stressors. To improve your emotional wellness, get further in touch with your inner self through things like meditation and counseling.

1. Stay calm. This part may be hard but just take a deep breath and try to gather your thoughts. Remember where you left all those textbooks and gather together some spare pieces of paper and pens. Highlighters and flashcards are also a good idea.

2. Once you have all your things together, make sure you find a nice quiet spot to study. Make sure its not too comfortable like your bed or the couch because you will risk the chance of falling asleep.

3. Open your textbooks and or notes and begin from the start. Don't focus on the little details though. Concentrate on the bigger picture, highlight the important facts that you think could possibly be on the test. Also remember to do the vocabulary. It will help your understanding if you know what a word means.

4. Write out important info or recite small bits out loud. This will help your brain process the material better. If you just skim your textbooks or notes you probably won't remember anything.

5. Make flash cards. This is a good way to quiz yourself and it also helps you process the information when you write out the flashcards and read them out loud.

6. After studying for a couple of hours, go to bed. If you stay up all night you will be so tired in the morning chances are you won't remember anything! Get up in the morning about 30-45 minutes earlier and familiarize yourself with the highlighted parts of your notes and textbooks. If you made flashcards go through them again.

7. Take a deep breath. Go through the information a couple of times on your way to school. Chances are if you paid attention in class and got in some good studying the night before you should be fine.

8. Ask your teacher for something to review for the test, maybe certain subjects. Look up anything possible online, and study a little in homeroom.

9. Also remember to go to bed at the appropriate time. You don't want to fall asleep in class. (ps: have a good breakfast so you feel healthy and not a have a stomach ache.)

10. If you have time, ask a friend or family member to quiz you. This will help you find out exactly what you do know, and what you need to read up on more.
