Here’s a guide on how to achieve a good work and life balance, while still getting things done!
Buy a diary (and track your goals)
A week-to-view diary is great for keeping on top of your life at university, giving you a way to see lectures, study dates and social events at a glance.
Using a diary will help you figure out how much time you have left to relax and get back to neutral. Plus, it’s also great practice for the future as it prepares you for effective time management in the workplace.
If you want to make sure you’re on track with monthly goals and objectives, it could also be beneficial to keep a bullet journal. This is the type of diary that is made up of simple bullet points and lists, including deadlines, to-do lists, short and long term goals, as well as plans and aspirations for the future.
