How To Maintain Balance In Your Life While At University

University is one of those things where if you let it, it can really consume all your time. It’s easy to fall into a pattern of only focusing on work and putting all the other important things in your life on the back burner. However, this is not exactly healthy because you need to have balance in your life because if you don’t have balance it’s easy to get exhausted, suffer from mental health problems and even physical problems. Here are some ways that can help you bring balance to your life while at university:

  1. Plan everything/keep a schedule– I would highly recommend getting a planner or scheduling your time in other ways. It will help to organise your time so that you don’t end up spending too much time on one thing and not enough on another. 
  2. Take some “me” time– I know it can be overwhelming with all the work you get from university but it’s also important to take some time off to focus on yourself and just relax. Whether it’s reading, sleeping, watching TV, yoga, meditation or pretty much anything just remember to breathe. 
  3. Mental health is important– your mental health should be your priority especially when you are at university because it’s easy to forget about it and end up being totally mentally exhausted due to stress and overworking. It helps to not leave assignments till the last minute because it can get very stressful to do everything at the last moment. Remember to seek help if you feel really overwhelmed.
  4. Don’t try to do everything– even though balance is good don’t overstretch yourself by trying to do too much. It’s okay to not be perfect all the time, it’s okay to not do everything at once and it’s also okay to spend some time doing absolutely nothing.  

I want to thank Yeka for giving me the opportunity to post on her blog and I really hope everyone enjoys this post!

CARDS: GUEST POST OF KEVIN, WHAT WORDS MAY COME ❤️

Deeply honored to share this beautiful poem written by our dear fellow blogger Kevin from What Words May Come. This is lovingly dedicated to his sweet daughter Tara.


DOORS FOR TARA 

Ever does the new moon rise

Yet black in the clearest autumn skies

Undaunted by earth’s rotation abound 

Creeping ever so slowly above the soft ground

As early the glory of morning sleeps tight

The day brings it refuge to open with light

But only to fall back to sleep once again

Brings closure to dream of a new morning’s grin

The heart on its journey can be quite the same

To open and close with emotional aim

While we wonder throughout our life in a daze

It’s a challenge we face walking through life’s maze

And doors have their hinges that swing to a stance

They’re open or closed as they move in the dance

We all are like doors if we look at our lives

We open and close like husbands and wives

While some of us never quite reach our crest

Like the moon we shine full when we are at our best

Relationships often take the same road

Making too much of one thing to carry a load

But when that load becomes too much to bare

We wane like the moon and start not to care

It happens as mortals for that’s what we do

We wax and we wane in relationships too

So, keep your heart light and look to the stars

For you never quite know what might create scars

Yet scars are a sign that you truly did live

And for that be thankful that your heart can still give

LAMPS: GUEST POST OF RICHARD, BIG SKY BUCKEYE ❤️

Thank you Yeka for asking me to share some of my life lessons.  Each of these reflections comes from my journal, which is updated with thoughtful words from reading and commenting on others’ blog posts.  These are in no particular order.


1. God has much in store for the coming days, weeks, months, and years.  He feeds us with the bread of life.

2. Happiness can show up in unexpected places.

3. Love brings an avenue for a person to support another.  This is the richness of true unconditional love.

4. I can never expect to walk perfectly with Jesus, but I can work to listen to Him and abide in His teachings.

5. Young love may be filled with excitement and passion, but love that matures and blossoms like a rose is wonderfully precious.

6. Sometimes, all we need for a successful journey in life is to take that very first step.

7. Life is worth savoring precious and special moments with the people whom we love and care about.

8. We should never give in to the power that tries to muzzle us.  Yes, let us keep swinging for the fences and take our best shot.

9. Having true friends is precious!  We need to stay connected with these special relationships.

10. We all have our own identity, which allows us to leave unique footprints in the sand.

11. Humility is a word of strength to Christians.  We humbly walk with Christ just as He humbly walked with His Father.
