4 Tips for Juggling a Job or Internship as a Full-Time Student
You’re a full-time student, a leader on your campus, an intern for your dream company - all while trying to have a social life, workout and get enough sleep.
Sounds like you’re living the life, right? Trust us, The Brand Girls team knows it’s not that easy.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed from trying to do everything, check out The Brand Girls tips for juggling it all with grace.
Choose your priorities: I’m an all or nothing kinda gal, and so many of our brilliant Brand Girls are too! I like to remind myself, “You should be all in for a few things, but you can’t be all in for everything.”
Everyone wants to work out 5 days a week, nail it at their dream job, save more $, travel the world, spend time with family/friends, and also never leave the couch… but we can’t do it ALL flawlessly.
Choose your priorities - it helps if you write them down as a reminder of what you’re committed to the most right now.
Consistency is key: Once you choose what priorities you’re keeping your focus on, you have to stick with it in order to be successful.
Schedule time on your calendar and set reminders to hold yourself accountable! (An accountability partner never hurts either).
Stop beating yourself up already: No one looks back and had their life all together by 22. It’s time to stop expecting yourself to be perfect at EVERYTHING.
If you’re really struggling, try this: Pick one area of your life at a time that you want to see yourself improve and write out a plan to reach your goals in that area. Rinse and repeat!
Embrace the chaos with gratitude: Do you ever feel like you have way too many things going on at once? Like your head is going to explode from the endless to-do lists and deadlines? Take a deep breath.
Remember how badly you wanted to get into that college. Think back to the number of job applications you sent out before landing that position. Don’t forget how hard you worked to get where you are.
Let the craziness of right now turn into gratitude for how far you’ve come and how far you’re going. You’ve got this!
