What is the best way to manage working two jobs, maintaining an A average, and make time for a social life in college?
As a student who is depending on scholarships and my own jobs to pay for college, it is very intimidating to take on two jobs and keep my grades up. I worked as a manager in high school and the stress and workload of my job on top of school made me feel as if I were losing my life to my responsibilities. I understand I must take care of my responsibilities as an adult, but what can I do to balance my life so that I still enjoy my life? I do not want my college experience to be overshadowed by my bills as it was when I was in high school.

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>
