This is why an alarm for self-care and other leisure activities can be healthy after you complete your top priorities.
Make Sure You Can Handle It
Often as humans looking for more opportunities, we tend to give ourselves many tasks to handle at once. However, we must recognize that we won’t be efficient in these tasks if we pile too many things on our plates.
You may be doing well in one area and may need to improve in another. Therefore, we should give ourselves a limit on what we should take on.
If having two jobs and two extracurricular activities has become draining, and you need to be more effective, you may need to eliminate one of these tasks from your schedule. Having less will allow you to get more things done and perform exceptionally in all areas and tasks.
Boundaries For Work Life Balance
If you have friends and attend a university, you know the struggles of saying “no” can be taunting. With different personalities and friends that you care for, it can be hard to respect your boundaries by sitting out on some things.
Not setting boundaries and conforming to the ways of others can be a hassle. It is one reason why many students have trouble completing tasks. Just as you balance your work and extracurricular activities, you must balance your hangout time and friend time as well.
For example, staying consistent with your work during the week and using the weekend to have fun may work for you. This is a perfect balance.
Your extracurricular activity days and working days range from Monday to Wednesday, while the rest of your week is completely free. Those extra open days may be for hanging out, catching up on alone time, and self-care.
