What are helpful ways to manage my time with school and sports going on at the same time?
I have a busy schedule everyday with school and basketball going on so it is hard to have time for other things at the en of the day. #school #sports
Hope this helps. Feel free to ask more questions. Would love to help
The biggest skill to have here is time management and understanding priorities. You are first a student athlete and so make sure you are on top of your studies. This means that you have to work harder then your other peers and utilize your time efficiently. Any spare time you have throughtout your school day you could get started early with your work. Throughout lunch times or any break times get ahead by starting your homework early! Spend the hour before practice to do work as well! Basically you have to find the gaps and take advantage. I remember in a math class the teacher assigned the work and we just started doing the homework right then and got half of it finished by the end of class. When others go out and play, you have to utilize those times to do your school work. Small things like these I believe help you stay on top of school work while allowing you to play sports at the same time!
Wish you all the best!
I also suggest thinking about prioritization. You probably have some sort of social life you want to maintain, so you need to be clear about your priorities and the amount of time you have each day, week, etc. Social media can be a huge time suck, so I would recommend using an app that locks your social media use for certain time periods to make sure you get the most of your study time.
I hope this helps! Take care of yourself!
I wasn't much of an athlete in high school because I was younger and smaller than my peers but I still loved the sports I did play. You will miss those sports and camaraderie when school is over and you move on to the next stage of your life so enjoy the ride! Sometimes we have to make sacrifices for the things we love. As a world class Crossfit athlete myself with a family, I still have to make sacrifices in my available free time in order to prioritize my wife and family first, in order to achieve my career and athletic goals at this later stage in my life.
It all comes down to quality over quantity in life and training! Make sure the time you put into anything in life is quality so you get the most out of those moments without compromising on the amount of free time we have on any given day. Good luck, put your head down and stay focused on your goals and you will achieve them!
