No idea! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

I'm navigating through the murky sea of reality, with swarming sharks made out of responsibilities in a Disney ship fuelled by fantasy that is guided by the winds of hope.

Try to stay organized and make a schedule and force yourself to stay on it and make sure you put 'little space' on that schedule. Make sure you eat right and get plenty of sleep. You can do this, just try to be disciplined. I know this can be hard. Good luck

Sorry to be THAT guy, but there isn't a right answer to your question. When I was working full-time and going to school full-time, it was really hard to try and balance everything. I DID go crazy, a lot, and often times my health, both mental and physical, ended up on the back burner. 

 

My best advice is to stay organized. I had a monthly calander, a weekly calander and a daily "to-do" list to help me stay super organized. That way, I knew about any assignments coming up during the week and any assessments coming up that I need to be preparing myself for throughout the month. My daily list also helped me prioritize homework and assignments that I needed to do instead of working on things that weren't due for a while.

 

Also, it's easier said than done but try to not over-work yourself. As I said, I was so busy that my mental health went on the back-burner and it made me super stressed out and I burnt out easily. Thankfully, I was able to talk to my boss and work out some days that I could come in later or leave earlier from my shifts so I would have that extra time to either work on assignments without stressing about lack of time, or just to take a breather. 

 

I think that those of us who are going through similar experiences all have different ways of working through and coping with the stress and unfortunately there isn't a correct formula to keeping our sanity. Remember: your mental health is important and it shouldn't be on the back-burner. Reach out and ask for help, there are a lot of people in your life that are willing to help you.

 

Hope this helps!

^^^ This is awesome advice!

 

In 2019, I worked a lot on balance in my life between work, health, family, and friends. Then this year dove into MAJOR imbalance. Working full time and averaging over 70 hours a week working on my studies. I barely slept, my health was relatively poor, and my mental health suffered from not having a good support system. I would say, please do lean on your friends and family. Let them know that things are hard. It's the people who cheer you on and give you a boost that help make the process feel slightly better. (We can be support buddies, I'm on break right now and about to go back into it. haha)

 

When having a tight schedule, it is super important to be really disciplined and do things when you plan them out. You let one thing go and the rest starts tumbling into a bigger ball. There are productivity journals out there that are really helpful for planning for your day/week and prioritizing them as well as setting goal times. Maybe this will help you schedule in little time and how long you should put into it. I usually recommend doing little time before bed although that's just something that personally works for me. It doesn't mess up my day or take a huge chunk of my day and is fulfilling in a way I'm not upset about not being able to be entirely little. 

 

Here is the link to the planner I used to use: Productivity Planner via Amazon (link was hella long, shortened it)

 

I don't entirely reccomend using it as I came across it from a personal stylist I follow.  She uses/d it as a tool to be more productive in her business. I decided to try it out and it really did work but what I would do here is just take the format and adjust it to your needs. You should be able to view the pages and take the concept to adapt. 

 

Not every step you take is going to be a balanced one. So remember why you are doing this and the sacrifice you make now for the tomorrows to come. You got this! Don't give up!
