Maintaining the right study-life balance is easier said than done in your college life. Studying can take up an ample amount of time, which means that a lot of things on the personal front, essential and recreational, go for a toss. Here are some tips to help you to do something that most students fail to do i.e. achieve the perfect study-life balance.
1. Do Not Procrastinate!
Procrastinating is your biggest enemy. Remember, delaying things will just keep on adding to the pile of things you have to do. The stress that comes along with it can disrupt your studies and put your personal life in a sense of lag. So, DO NOT PROCASTINATE!
2. Take A Day Off!
Once in a while, take a day off. This will allow you to see things from a new perspective and help you gain strength to handle more pressure.
3. No Multi-Tasking
The problem with multi-tasking is that it consumes more energy than usual. What’s worse is that in many cases, your efficiency too takes a hit. The ideal way to go about a task is to finish it first and then moving on to next. Sometimes, the standard approach is the best approach.
4. Avoid Distractions
Engage in social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, but put a time cap on it. Excess of anything is bad, and social media is no exception to that belief.
5. Take Care of Your Health
A balanced diet coupled with a generous amount of physical activity is very important for students. If you gorge on fast food, try some fruits. If you take a rickshaw to your metro or bus, try to replace it with a long walk. All these little things that you do to stay active can go a long way to keep you healthy in life.
6. Time is precious so utilize it wisely.
Don’t waste your free time sleeping or
7. Stick to a Schedule
The reason why most of us plan things is because we intend to prioritize. Your schedule will tell you when you should be finishing a project or assignment. So, plan ahead and stick to the schedule. You can add some incentives to it to stay motivated. Whatever you do, stick to a schedule and you will find that you have harmonised your study-life balance.
This list may not apply to all but it can definitely help a lot. Here’s to a lifestyle where you can take pride in your study-life balance!]]>
