Ever feel as though there is just not enough time in a day to complete everything that you need to? Don’t worry you are not alone. I am known to take on a ton of things and then feel like I am being pulled in a million different directions and do not know which way to turn next. So if you have a very similar life to this here are a few tips to help keep you balanced and not feel like you don’t know where to begin. One thing that you can do to help stay balanced is to have a weekly to do list. On this list you will write down what you have to do each day. It is beneficial to take this list with you everywhere. This way as you complete a task on your list, you are able to cross it off and keep track of what you have already done. Another way to stay balanced is to see how much you think you can handle at the beginning of a semester. At the beginning of each semester you are given a syllabus for each class that you are taking. This syllabus usually has every assignment that you are expected to complete by the end of the semester. As you receive each syllabus you should write down each of the things that are due on a master schedule. This way you will be able to see how much school work you have to do in a given week and also how much free time you will have. This way you can plan out how many hours you can spend working and how much free time you have to spend with your friends or to do extracurricular activities. There is always a way to stay balanced. You just have to take the initiative to make sure you are keeping up with everything that you said you would do. Therefore, being a proactive person and creating those weekly and master schedules will help you in the long run.
