Life is a balancing act and sometimes it seems impossible to manage everything. Sorority, School and Social. These three S’s probably seem to be running your life. They can also add another S into the mix – Stress. Here are a few ways you can conquer all of them:
Get organized. Utilize a planner or to do lists. Write down when you have due dates or deadlines and figure out ways to break those big tasks into smaller ones. Set target completion dates along the way.
Plan ahead. If you know you have a big presentation coming up but want to go out of town the weekend before, get your presentation out of the way. That way you can enjoy your time away without the weight of the presentation on your mind.
Prioritize. Everything may be important, but rank what is most critical to what is least critical. Then complete tasks in order. You may have to make tough choices and understand that something may have to come off your to do list.
Reach out for help. It is easy to feel like you are over committed. Ask a sister if she could help you study or make the banner for your philanthropy event. Delegation is a great skill to practice.
Take one day at a time. We all get overwhelmed with the millions of things we feel like we have to complete. Know that tomorrow is a new day and sometimes it is better to walk away from a paper, get some much needed sleep and start fresh the next day.
Of course we know that this is easier said than done, but you it is possible to balance them all.
What do you do that is most helpful to balance everything?
