<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>

First the most important thing is your health, don't put to much stress on yourself

focus on the task at hand, stay focused on doing well is school

and you will find time for your social life

I found that if I got off to a good start either in a certain class (did well on early test)
or I got an early jump on an assignment or report rather than waiting until the last minute that allowed me to take a break
and go out when the opportunity arose

I also found that if I used my time between classes well that help minimize the need to spend all night working on things
because I had already read or answered questions

I would recommend that you keep a schedule. Sleeping is very important and make sure that its at least 8 hrs for 3days in the week. Keep Fridays for going out and staying out late as Sat is a holiday & you can sleep late :-). Also remember that if you study hard and get good grades then your future will be better

I agree with Natasha. Setting a schedule and making lists of my tasks has always served me very well. Set a realistic schedule and try to stick with it. Even at my busiest, I tried to exercise at least 35 minutes for 5-6 days per week. Setting a schedule also helps keep you from procrastinating. I found getting up early to exercise got me ready for a full day of classes and studying.
Good luck!
