How To Utilise Your Free Time 

Navigating the hectic life of a student is like trying to juggle a dozen balls at once – it’s overwhelming! Between classes, assignments, and the occasional social life, finding time for yourself can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. But hey, here’s the deal: chilling out isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity. 

Seriously, taking care of yourself isn’t just about bubble baths and Netflix binges (although those are great too!). It’s about recharging your batteries so you can tackle your to-do list like a boss.

So, how do you make the most of your downtime without feeling guilty about it? First things first, schedule it in! Treat your free time like a hot date – put it in your calendar and stick to it. Whether it’s a quick study break or a full-blown self-care Sunday, having a plan helps you stay on track. Before you unwind, make a quick plan for your next study session. Jot down key tasks and create a realistic timeframe. This will give you a sense of accomplishment and prevent free time from morphing into a guilt trip about unfinished work. 

Ever forget a crucial seminar or double-book yourself? Juggling lectures, meetings, and work deadlines can be a nightmare. Google Calendar offers a centralised solution to organise your schedule. From lectures to work shifts, it keeps everything in one place. The collaboration feature lets you easily share your schedule with friends and colleagues, ensuring everyone’s on the same page. While Google Calendar reigns supreme for many, some people swear by the satisfaction of writing things down. A good diary or physical calendar might be the perfect fit for some, here are some recommendations for all price points:

Next up, ditch the FOMO and embrace the power of doing nothing. Seriously, there’s nothing wrong with just chilling and doing absolutely nothing for a while. It’s like hitting the reset button for your brain. 

And hey, don’t forget to mix things up! Sure, Netflix marathons are fun, but so is trying out a new hobby or going for a hike. Variety is the spice of life, right?

In a nutshell, finding the balance between work and play is key to surviving – and thriving – as a student. So go ahead, take that much-needed break. Your future self will thank you for it!
