2) Build a supportive network
As we transition from high school to university life, taking on more challenging responsibilities can be overwhelming, and there is a chance that we may neglect relationships with friends and family.
Building a supportive network that can help you alleviate stress throughout busy weeks when you are trying to balance your school, work, and social life successfully. For example, taking some time to vent to a trusted friend can help remind you that you are not alone.
Your social network serves as your support system, and it is okay if you are not currently able to execute everything successfully. Surrounding yourself with encouraging and supportive individuals will help you get through a rough day and build rapport moving forward.
3) Take care of your mental health
With juggling many responsibilities simultaneously, you sometimes overlook the most crucial thing, taking care of yourself. Your mental health is as important. Every element of your productivity and well-being, including your studies, employment, and personal relationships, could suffer if you are not at your most cognitively and emotionally balanced version of yourself.
Making time for self-care in your daily schedule will not only leave you feeling rejuvenated but also inspire you to finish the task at hand.
Some routines you might want to incorporate are:
- Listening to music/podcast
- Going out for a walk/exercise
- Calling friends and family
- Reading a book
- Watching a movie/TV show
