We all have the same amount of time, (24 Hours) whether in college, at work or at home.
First take out 10 hours, for sleep and bathing and eating breakfast in the morning.
That is a must and if you do not do this first, your day will go awry.
How do we achieve balance in work that must be done, and things extra (activities) that we want to add after work?
The KEY word, is FOCUS and Concentration.
When you are studying or doing any work. FOCUS on this ONLY. and give it your full attention.
Do your very best work, and do not get distracted with anything else.
Set a fixed time, lets say between 08 AM to 05 PM. and after take a break.
List 3 things that you'd like to do after wards,
and dedicate one hour for each.
When you are done. Do something FUN. to reward yourself.
In the weekend you can do what ever you want, right after homework of course.
There are times when you may need to dedicate more time, like when you have an important project.
The key to success is this: divide your biggest chunk of time to study and college.
they divide your time in these: Family & Friends - Fun and Activities ( like tv or internet) - Eating and Exercise.
also some kind of time alone, where you think , or pray or are just by yourself, reading or doing something.
Find what you like, and divide in a pie of 8 pieces.
1) School and College
2) Money Issues,
3) Social Activities
5) Leisure and Fun
6) Church, God and Prayer
7) ME TIME -and whatever you like
8) Inner contemplation
