To manage school and sports, I'd say try and make your school schedule more manageable. Try to take the classes that occur less times per week and schedule them back to back as well. If you have relaxed professors who don't mind, use blank class time to catch up on your other homework. Identify times during your school week where you're stuck somewhere and can't do either sports or relaxing. See if you can squeeze some study time out of those blocks. I'd recommend checking out the Quizlet app; it's free and allows you to study flashcards anywhere and on-the-go.

<span style="background-color: transparent;">You have to set a routine for yourself and stick to it for the most part. Once you get into the groove of a routine it will be much easier for you to manage your time and have enough time for everything you need to do (including relaxing). Make yourself to-do lists on a weekly basis, use Google calendar or a planner to keep track of events, deadlines, and due dates. In addition to setting a routine and sticking to it, plan out relaxing activities into your day. Or set aside a time, after everything is done for the day, that you can have "me" time. I have also personally found it essential to not only find time for myself but also make use of that time in a way that is best for me and my holistic wellness. I have found the HeadSpace app to be an essential tool in helping me relax and generally feel more relaxed throughout the day, Guided meditation, even if you have a busy schedule, will make you feel more at ease and relaxed throughout the day as a whole (not just when you have the time to relax and focus on that "me" time).</span>
