It’s practically destiny to have a very busy schedule while in college, especially the longer you are in college. With so much going on, it is hard to get involved in campus organizations and events. Here is how to keep doing the fun campus opportunities, even when you are super busy.
Keep A Planner
No matter what, I believe everyone should use a planner or a planning system to stay organized. When you have all of your deadlines, appointments, and important dates in one place, it’s easy to identify when you have free time to go to events or you can schedule events or club meetings into your planner so you don’t forget about what you really want to do.
I know at my university, there are many events that happen during lunch time. So it’s super easy for me to take my lunch to the weekly afternoon concert and both enjoy the event and eat my lunch, especially since I would have to eat anyway. See if there are meetings or events during your time for lunch and take your food there. Or, like with the concerts, take work with you to do while you listen to the music. Take advantage of being able to do multiple things at one time.
Have a friend be an accountability person to keep you going to club meetings or events you both want to attend. If you have someone who will motivate you to be involved and will do it with you, you will be more inclined to go and have fun.
All in all, you may not be as busy as your stress will make you feel, and it is good to take a break from all of that work and do something you enjoy.
