Balancing work and study is part of many people’s routine, however, it is far from an easy task, and balancing this double journey can become a real challenge.
Whether it is a course that lasts a few months, an undergraduate or graduate course, or even preparing for a public exam, the student’s routine demands a lot of dedication and, above all, time, which is not usually in abundance in the lives of those who work.
To be able to balance study and work, you need a lot of organization and discipline. Thinking of helping you in this mission, we have prepared some tips that can be very useful.
The importance of planning
To be able to cope with a double shift, it is important to plan your time well and set deadlines for all your tasks.
To do this, make a weekly plan, but don’t forget to think about your monthly and daily obligations.
Write down all your obligations and set a day and time to accomplish them, leave these notes in a place where you can see them often, and sort the tasks according to priority.
Organization and focus
Determine periods in your day to be exclusively focused on one activity or another. For example, if you work in the morning and study in the evening, don’t use one period to do the other.
During the time you set aside to perform your duties, avoid as much as possible productivity villains such as distractions with social networks, side conversations, and unnecessary breaks.
Take care of your physical and mental health
Balancing work and mental health is already important, but when you lead a double life between your job and your studies this should be an even greater concern.
Overload is one of the main reasons for stress, and in order to withstand the pressure, it is important to be aware of the signs of wear and tear and avoid situations that can worsen stress.
Try to maintain good eating habits, sleep well, and avoid excesses such as caffeine, alcohol, and smoking.
In addition, doing physical activities and taking care of your posture during study and work hours is fundamental.
Value your free time
For a person who sets out to study and work at the same time, having free moments is something rare, so they should be used in the best possible way.
Just as you plan your work and study tasks, plan your free time to enjoy it with quality, so that you don’t feel stuck solely in the universe of work and study.
Don’t give up one for the other
Although it is difficult to study and work at the same time, you shouldn’t let one get in the way of the other. In other words: both work and study are important to you, so find the best way to accomplish both.
The road to achieving your dreams may be long and difficult, but it will certainly be worth it.
