How To Maintain Balance In Your Life While At University

University is one of those things where if you let it, it can really consume all your time. It’s easy to fall into a pattern of only focusing on work and putting all the other important things in your life on the back burner. However, this is not exactly healthy because you need to have balance in your life because if you don’t have balance it’s easy to get exhausted, suffer from mental health problems and even physical problems. Here are some ways that can help you bring balance to your life while at university:

  1. Plan everything/keep a schedule– I would highly recommend getting a planner or scheduling your time in other ways. It will help to organise your time so that you don’t end up spending too much time on one thing and not enough on another. 
  2. Take some “me” time– I know it can be overwhelming with all the work you get from university but it’s also important to take some time off to focus on yourself and just relax. Whether it’s reading, sleeping, watching TV, yoga, meditation or pretty much anything just remember to breathe. 
  3. Mental health is important– your mental health should be your priority especially when you are at university because it’s easy to forget about it and end up being totally mentally exhausted due to stress and overworking. It helps to not leave assignments till the last minute because it can get very stressful to do everything at the last moment. Remember to seek help if you feel really overwhelmed.
  4. Don’t try to do everything– even though balance is good don’t overstretch yourself by trying to do too much. It’s okay to not be perfect all the time, it’s okay to not do everything at once and it’s also okay to spend some time doing absolutely nothing.

    1. Oh you’re right! Balancing a lot of requirements and interests and activities and all within and outside of Uni is such a challenge. And that’s even an understatement! 😱🤔😬 What other tips can you share with those at Uni? ❤️

      1. I think I’d just mention to have fun – sometimes there can be so much pressure to have to achieve the best grades and get the best internships that it can be easy to forget that uni should be fun, too! Sometimes I wish I took more risks and had more fun times rather than always being so focused on the future!
