3 Tips to Manage Your Life as a Student 


Hello, beautiful readers!

As a student, we juggle a lot. We manage classes, homework, socializing, employment and more. I often ask myself: How can I better manage my life? I use the methods below to help manage my life. 

1. Use a Planner

I began using a planner faithfully this year. I’d be lost without it. I use this paper planner daily. It is a staple for many students like me. 

A planner is a valuable tool to schedule everything important in your life. Information I include in my planner:

  • Due dates for assignments/tests
  • Birthdays of family and friends
  • Medical appointments 
  • Bill payment reminders

2. Make time for the people and things you love

I incorporate this into my self-care routine. You’ll be happier (and healthier!) when you devote time and energy into tasks you enjoy. Find 1-2 things you love doing + 1-2 people to make a top priority. This helps you focus your time and energy.

3. Outline, outline, outline

The biggest organization tool I use is the Monthly View in my planner. When each semester begins, I go through my class syllabus and record due dates. I outline my semester to give myself a broad view of tasks to accomplish each month.
