Balancing school work and leisure is really hard, especially as a high school student. With all the after school activities and sports, it is hard to get everything on our plates completed. Adults say that we should be more responsible and learn to make a schedule because it is “part of growing up”, but it is hard to make a schedule and stick to it. Life gets in the way, and even adults well into their years have a hard time managing their schedules. My personal advice to you is, as lame as it sounds, to keep some type of scheduling journal/device. This can range from an actual agenda with a calendar to just your cell phone. If you are more methodical and like to see visually what you have planned for the day, keep an agenda or write a list of everything you need to get done. It is so satisfying to cross something off of your list. If you are more of an on-the-go type of person, then I suggest that you use your phone. If you are like me, someone who forgets everything, then put reminders on your phone. It will keep you on your toes! Ultimately, these methods will only work if you are truly dedicated to organizing yourself. You will only see results if you are willing to put the effort in. You will not see results if you do not try. If you decide to truly put the effort into making an effective schedule for yourself, then I hope my advice will help you in some way, shape, or form!
