It’s funny, but I feel like I’m the most productive when my schedule is fully loaded. This semester I am at 18 credit hours, have an internship and still in USG. It’s a pretty heavy load…but knock on wood…I’m managing it well?
I think it’s because whenever I am beyond busy, I truly value the free time I do have and make sure I accomplish all my tasks on time. It’s like I realize that I have no time, so I make sure I make use of the time I do have. I’ve been studying management intensively this semester so this is the best way I am making sense of this.
I am doing pretty good in my classes this semester, which is great. But I still feel like there’s more to make up for. I wish I could schedule more time for exercise and meditation. These things really helped me last semester, but I haven’t had the time to really fit them in. It’s something called work-life balance that I need to find. I feel like school eats up so much of your time that it’s really hard to live you life, so to speak. Don’t get me wrong, I still go out and have fun with friends, but I think there’s always more I want to do. With college being a time of working to get to the next level, it’s just so hard to squeeze everything you want in you want to do in between.
So I’m writing this complant-esque blog to see what you all think…how do you get a sense of work-life balance? Thoughts?
