It's hard to find the perfect balance between school, work, and friends...but it's definitely possible!

Finding balance is all about keeping organized and prioritizing yourself. You just need to take some time to figure out what that means for you.

Find Your Balance

Find the sweet spot between studying, socializing, and taking care of yourself. You can't spend all day every day working on assignments and projects. You need breaks!

  • Set aside time for studying and try not to push yourself.

  • Dedicate time for socializing! It's super important for your mental health.

  • Take time for yourself.

Organization is Your Bestie

Keeping a day planner or journal can help spark a routine. There are reminders or calendar apps that you can always use instead of a physical notebook.

Here are some tips to keep organized:

  • Be mindful of your surroundings and minimize visual and digital clutter.

  • Create a calendar with assignment due dates, times for studying, social activities, appointments, and time to relax.

  • Set reminders to connect with friends or family.

  • Have your course syllabus easily accessible and use it for reference.

  • Develop note-taking strategies.

Know Yourself and Your Space

Take time to explore where you feel most comfortable studying. You may find you like working at a student center or coffee shop, or even studying at home.
