How do you maintain balance during the college application process?

Hi there, I'm finding it tough to balance schoolwork, extracurriculars, and college applications. How do you all manage your time and maintain a sense of balance during this process? Any tips would be really helpful, thanks!

It's definitely challenging to juggle everything during the college application process! One way to manage your time effectively is by creating a schedule or to-do list. This can help you prioritize tasks and allocate appropriate amounts of time for schoolwork, extracurriculars, and applications.

In terms of balance, it's important to remember that self-care should also be a priority. Make sure you're eating well, sleeping enough, and taking breaks when needed. It's also helpful to occasionally step back and reassess your goals to make sure you're still on track.

Lastly, don't be afraid to reach out for support from friends, family, or teachers. They can provide encouragement and advice to help you navigate this stressful period. Good luck!
