Importance of Balance in Student Life

PUBLISH DATE 19th April 2020

Student life the most memorable phase of every person’s life. It is the phase in which the whole foundation of a person’s life is laid upon. Where one grows emotionally, physically and socially as well. All experiences and implications drawn from those incidents are responsible for his/her nature.

Creating a study-life balance can be challenging. Balancing coursework, co-curricular activities, personal relationships can be difficult. But if you keep going without finding a proper balance, you are most likely to burn out, lose productivity at school/college and your connection to your personal life.

Study life balance means putting enough effort into your academic work while also taking time to enjoy the social, sporting and cultural aspects of being a student.Here are some good reasons to have time off as well as time studying:

  • All the things you do that are beyond your studies contribute to your overall experience of the world and you will import that back into your work to make your understanding and analyses richer.
  • You aren't expected to study 24/7. The university expects you to treat a full-time degree sort of like a full-time job, and do 30-35 hours of studying every week, including lecture, seminar and lab times.
  •  If you can commit yourself to well-defined study times, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy a range of activities.
  • Thinking time is as important as reading time and writing time. Your brain needs time and rest to process new information Likewise, your body needs exercise and sleep to keep it in a proper state of alertness so that you can focus on studying effectively.

Although, it can be hard to find a healthy balance between life and study, here are some tips to follow:

Plan a schedule

When you have multiple assessments due at the same time, it can be hard to delegate enough time for each task. Your best choice is to take a seat and plan out the semester ahead and make note of when everything is due, alongside other commitments like sports or events. Consider what amount of time you ought to spend on each assessment and determine what you should start early and which tasks can be left to a later date.

Set goals

Setting goals is a great way to motivate yourself for the semester ahead. You may aim to improve your marks, become more involved on campus or just finish tasks by a particular date perhaps to stay on course or because you'd like to have all your assessments completed before an upcoming event.

Make friends

Your classmates are going to be battling the same assessments and deadlines and may offer support and motivation. You may want to organize a group study session, or plan a celebratory dinner or night out after big assessments are due. Don’t hesitate. This will also help you socialize more.

Know your limits

It’s important to recognize when you have too much on your plate. If you’re struggling to remain on top of your studies, you will have to consider cutting short on other commitments or saying no to the occasional social outing. Likewise, it’s also important to identify when you need a break.

Look after yourself

Making time for friends, family, study and work is important, but you must also ensure you continue to have time to look after yourself. Ensure you’re getting enough sleep each night and try to seek out time for exercise throughout the week. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will help alleviate stress and stop you from burning out as the semester advances.

Students who participate in co-curricular activities and maintain study-life balance, show better academic results, stronger relationships in schools and are more likely to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. They also feel a sense of belongingness to the school and have higher self-esteem by participating in activities like music, dance, performing arts, sports etc. In addition to this, students become more motivated to perform better in their academics. This makes the students feel happier, healthier and involved.
