A very good question. You will experience various degrees of stress throughout your life. Will it always feel overwhelming, no. The key is to learn how to manage your stress and how to manage your time. My time in college taught me how to juggle work, school, and other responsibilities. I learned that I needed to manage my time. In my situation, I learned that a full course load and working was taking a toll for me. So I tried lighting the load and that was a tremendous help. I started to plan when I would do my readings and when I would work on my papers for my classes. Once I developed a schedule I was able to go back to taking a full course load. After college I was able to apply this method of time management to my everyday life. I am able to juggle the various responsibilities of work, home, and personal. Along the way I also learned how to manage my stress. I found that is is very important to take time to replenish from the day, whether it be by meditating, exercising , reading, or listening to music.
All the best,
