5 tips for better study-life balance

27 Apr 2021

Studying hard and having a job while still trying to maintain a social life, well...it’s a lot. It can be tricky to find a healthy balance between life and study, so here are some of our tried and tested top tips to help you find that balance.

1. Get scheduling

From study hours, physical activity, and mental health to socialising with friends. By managing your time properly (including fun times), you’ll get your work done while keeping the stress levels down.

Get Scheduling

2. Switch off


Super important! Scientists are increasingly finding that we need downtime in order to process the tsunami of information we’re smashed by every day. Meditation acts as a human on/off switch and is the perfect way to give yourself a quick break, before getting stuck into another task.

Switch off

3. Get out

Socialising isn’t just about good times with friends, it’s also critical to maintaining your overall wellbeing. With more and more screen time in our lives, getting together with people and nurturing real-life human connections are important ingredients for staying happy.

Get Out

4. Work smart

It’s all about quality over quantity. When you do knuckle down and study, work smarter, not longer. This means less time-wasting distractions, like email and social media, and more effort learning the way that best suits you.

Choose smart

5. Choose smart

This might sound obvious, but before you start a course, make sure it’s something you’re passionate about. Whether it’s animation or film making, if you love the subject you’re learning about, you’ll be motivated and inspired to keep going.
