<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>

Hi Kemi!


It is all about discipline. You have a very structured life in high school. However, college is much different.


Here is some good, helpful information from a student about how she managed to balance life in college.

I balanced my time and completed my college experience by commuting and working part time and did quite well. So can you.


Best of luck! Please keep me informed. I would like follow your progress.

Hello Kemi,

My suggestion is that you prioritize your school , work and hobbies. Decide the priority level of each one. Create a Calendar so you can easily track your schedule. Set alerts on your phone to remind you in advance of an obligation. Sometimes we take on too much, when you feel as if your schedule is too much to handle, this would be a good time to look at your priorities and decide what is most important to you and what do you need to change. School hours are pretty much set in stone. Hobbies are something you are in control of and can easily modify the time dedicated. As a student often time your job will work with your schedule, ask for the schedule you want and what works best for you. You will be pleasantly surprised how things will work out.
