Calling All College Students – Staying Organized

College life is a lot of responsibilities that are academically and socially stressful. It's challenging to balance the two to create the perfect equilibrium. Get organized to help keep yourself on top of things in order to get the most out of your academic career.

We at Solutions have the tips to help you get through those stressful times.

Create a workspace
Make your workspace clean and clutter-free. That means keeping your clothes tidy, belongings in place, and study material always at hand.

We recommend these items to help you: 

Remember; a clear workspace will help create a clear mind.

Organize your materials
Keep your class notes and course work in one area. It's easier to study if all your materials are in one area.

Classes
Schedule your work weeks to your preference. Are you an early riser or night owl? Structure your classes that fit at times when you are the most alert. 

Develop a schedule
Establish a routine that includes healthy eating, working out, studying, going to classes, sleep and free time. If you can maintain physically, emotionally, and mentally your mindset on everything will elevate.

Use your phone for reminders
There are many apps nowadays that help remind you in advance of important events. Take advantage of these apps to set important events ahead of time: exams, texts, study sessions, working out, etc.   

Have a budget
This is one of the biggest mistakes students make. Keep track of your finances throughout the year. It happens to so many people; they spend way too much at the beginning of the year. Then near the end of the school semester they're scrambling for month's end.

Sleep
Majority of students in college will be sleep-deprived. Remember, sleep affects concentration, memory and the ability to learn. Get well rested, in order to get the most out of every day. You will be well alert and ready to take on any necessary task to complete your busy college schedule.

Wake up on time
Oversleeping can lead to the same problems that result from sleep deprivation: increase risk of heart problems, obesity and cognitive impairment (concentration and memory). A good way to wake up is setting your alarm away from you; so you have to move your body in order to turn it off.
