Hey guys! Welcome back. Today’s post is all about balance. I wanted to talk to you about some tips on how you can balance all the things you have to do, from school to work to having a social life, and even beyond that. These are some things that will hopefully help you as you work to strike a balance with it all.
It is important to remain focused on whatever you are doing in the moment. Refrain from getting distracted as much as you can. Try to compartmentalize and focus solely on what you are working on. If it is an assignment, focus on that assignment. If it is socializing, work on being present in the moment. Just stay focused.
Find what makes you happy, but don’t use it as an excuse to procrastinate.
One of my favorite things to do is watch Netflix. It calms me and relaxes me and I love watching different shows. But I know that it is important not to let it distract me and not to use that as an excuse to put off what I need to do. It’s important to be productive and not use what makes me happy as the only thing I do. There needs to be some balance.
Technology can help or hurt you.
When you are working on an assignment or working on something that needs to be done, it is so easy to get on websites you don’t need to be on. It’s easy to pull up Netflix or YouTube and watch something. It’s important to understand that technology can really help you if you use if for what you need in that moment, but it can hurt you if you let it distract you from what you need to do.
Don’t set the bar too high.
Don’t expect to come out on top with everything you do. Don’t expect to be successful every time. You will disappoint yourself. It’s important to know that the most significant thing is to do your best. If you put in as much effort as you can, then you have done a great job. Don’t set the bar so high that you can never reach it. That will never help you and you will just be disappointed.
Reorganize your schedule.
If you have too much on your plate and you are having trouble balancing everything, reorganize your schedule. Move things around. Cut some things out. Focus on the things that you can absolutely get done in a reasonable manner. Balance is all about having enough, but not having too much.
Be honest with the people in your life.
Sometimes the people in our lives don’t understand how busy we are or how much we have going on. So it is important to be honest with our friends and family and let them know that we have something going on. Boundaries are super important and you can’t have time for everything all the time. However, it’s also important not to shut those people completely out either.
