5 Tips To Balancing A Busy Schedule

Often times you get stuck with a very busy schedule whether it is during the summer or during the school year. This summer I am juggling two jobs, an internship, and a couple of classes. I know that many people have the same schedule as I do, if not busier and so I would like to share 5 tips on how to balance your busy schedule.

1. Get a planner


A planner can go a long way. That way you can plan each week and keep track of all of your schedules and due dates. Sometimes with a busy schedule, it is easy to lose track of what you have to do each day and so if you write it down then it makes it easier to remember.

2. Get a good nights rest


When your schedule is slammed it can be hard to remember to get a good amount of sleep. Getting a good nights rest is very important because you want your body to be energized for each busy day. Try to remember to let your body rest.

3. Make time in your schedule for fun things


It can be easy to lose touch with the things you would do for fun like meet up with friends or hang out with family but try to make time to do those things too. You will drive yourself crazy if you are only working throughout your entire summer or semester. Don't forget to treat yourself.

4. Don't skip breakfast


Skipping breakfast is a common thing when someone has a busy schedule but breakfast is an important meal. It helps you jump start your day. Even if it is a bagel and a coffee that morning.

5. Remember that hard work pays off


Remind yourself why you are working this hard and what you plan to accomplish. Keep yourself motivated by keeping your eye on the prize, whether your goal is to save money, get credit for school or to move your way up in your job. Sometimes it doesn't feel like it but hard work does pay off.

You might get stressed and feel like you are running on a treadmill but you can reach your goal as long as you keep yourself balanced. Keep working hard but don't forget to take care of yourself while you are. Good luck with your busy schedule and I hope you reach your goals.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
