Do you have a busy life outside of school? Are you juggling a full time job while in beauty school? You CAN achieve success in all areas of your life. Here are 5 ways to help you balance your school and personal life:
1. Make a Schedule
If you have work right after class, you know that it can be hard to find time to do even the simplest task. Schedule your time carefully and fill every minute. Note when you’ll do chores like buying groceries and doing the laundry. Remember to plan time for fun! It’s easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of daily life. Schedule quality time with your family and friends.
2. Create Lists
Lists are your friend! Make daily, weekly, and even monthly to-do lists. These lists will ensure that you plan ahead and don’t miss anything along the way. Add your to-do lists to your phone and set alerts so you don’t forget.
3. Add Important Dates to Your Calendar
Add appointments, exam dates, and items from your work schedule to your phone calendar. Set alerts to remind yourself a couple of days before and the day of an important date.
4. Make Allies
Ask for help! Find reliable allies who understand your busy lifestyle and can help support you. Openly communicate any concerns you have with your supervisor and instructors. Make friends with your coworkers and classmates. Do you need extra time to study for an exam? You might need to ask a coworker to cover your shift for you. That’s where a reliable group of allies comes in!
5. Make the Most of Travel Time
Do you depend on public transportation? Use that time to brush up on your class notes or run through flashcards for an upcoming exam. If you find yourself stuck in your car during rush hour traffic, use that time to mentally prepare for what’s next in your busy schedule. It’s important to take the time to decompress so that you feel focused and refreshed.
