I always had a lot of things going on in my life. I love to be involved, sometimes a bit too much. One thing it has taught me is how to balance work and life.
When I was in high school, I was taking all my courses, working, volunteering, and playing volleyball on a competitive level. Continuously improving my way of working and trying to minimize my time wasted.
I didn’t master my work-life balance naturally. It took a lot of work. If you have major goals that you want to accomplish, balancing different areas of your life is one great skill that you can use in that process.
I am a big advocate of getting up early. I get up every morning at 6 am and I spend 1.5-2 hours on the blog until I need to leave for work. Working in the morning on a passion project is something that has helped me a lot.
There is one thing I wouldn’t have expected when it comes to becoming a work-life balance master: taking time for yourself. I love to spend time on my hobbies, especially reading is one of my absolute favorite activities. Besides that, there are several other frugal self-care activities that I’m doing.
Without something like a to-do list, it would be difficult for me to remember what I should get done. I would spend the majority of my day trying to remember what I should actually do.
While I’m not in university anymore, I still try to make the timing work out perfectly. It’s a habit I’ve built that allows me to use my time efficiently.
What you can try to do: determine which task you want to do and stick to it. Choose how much time you want to spend doing it, and give up any distractions.
Know that there is no right or wrong way to arrange the tasks you want to complete in a day.
