Not Enough Time

Dear Sugar
I am a busy college girl and with classes, assignments, and a part time job, there is little time left to do things for myself such as exercise, spend time with my boyfriend, cook, etc... Do you have any smart time saving tips to help squeeze more minutes out of the day? If so, please share!! Time Crunch Carrie

Dear Time Crunch Carrie
Time management is a difficult mission to accomplish, and sometimes we all just wish there were more hours in a day. Developing a healthy balance between work and the rest of our personal life is crucial so hopefully, I can give you some helpful tips. The most important thing to remember is to make sure to slow down to enjoy the people around you.

Try to manage your time better by mapping out your days and making 'To Do' lists. People tend to stress about getting everything accomplished when sometimes they are simply just disorganized. Try to remember that you are only human; sometimes you have to accept the fact that you can't do it all and that's OK.

Exercising is key to keeping your mind alert and clear as well. Could you make running dates with your friends or your boyfriend? Since you enjoy cooking, invite your friends over to a dinner party, that way you can do something you enjoy while sharing it with the people you love.

As important as it is to maintain a study routine, your personal life should not have to suffer as a result. Could you be taking too many classes? Are your classmates feeling the same way? Make sure to take your weekends to enjoy your personal time. Set priorities and stick to them. Hopefully, you can soon master balancing your life so that you can enjoy your college experience to its full potential.
