4 Tips to balance your college and personal life

By Roy Navarro on February 5, 2023

Let’s be honest. College can be a lot sometimes. A ton of homework and exams getting closer can make someone choose between their college life and personal life, which for some people can create more stress they don’t need.

There has to be a balance between both sides, or you risk alienating the people in your life or becoming burnt out with your studies. This is why I’ve come up with four tips to help you achieve that balance while you’re in college:

  1. Take breaks – Breaks are a significant part of living. It gives you time for yourself to breathe and to recollect yourself. Taking breaks can ensure you don’t get burnt out and that your mental health stays intact.
  2. Manage your time wisely – Create a schedule that dictates a clear divide between your school and personal life. It can help create a healthy lifestyle and help you not stress when you’re supposed to be relaxing.
  3. Don’t procrastinate – This may seem like an obvious tip, but it still has to be said. If you don’t procrastinate, you can finish your work on time and allow you to have free time during the day.
  4. Take a deep breath – Sometimes, all you need to get balance is to take a deep breath and recenter yourself. Life is a lot, but if you give yourself time to take things slowly and breathe deeply, you can find balance.

These tips won’t work for everyone. Everyone has their own way of getting their college and personal lives balanced.
