5 Tips to Balancing School, Work, and a Social Life

1.) Ease into a work schedule. It may take a few weeks, or months even to get used to your school schedule and you need to figure out what times you will be available to work, how much work you can take on, and more. Be sure you have time to complete school work, spend time with friends, and do your job properly.

2.) Schedule wisely. All students are different in terms of how much work they can take on along with everything school throws at them. Set reminders on your phone, mark events on your calendar, plan your day so you can be prepared for what lies ahead, and it will take more stress off of you by knowing what you have to do.

3.) List your priorities. What is more important? Hanging out with your friends or your future?

4.) Get organized. Keep your school materials away from your work materials. This will make it easier to find things and help make your life less stressful. Not only will staying organized help with stress, but your teachers and boss will notice and appreciate your organizational skills.

5.) Stay focused on your goals. Surround yourself with pictures of people who have helped you achieve your goals or the people who are helping you. Make a list of the things you want to achieve and remind yourself why you want to achieve these goals.
