So I have been in college for one month so far and I already feel like I am drowning with everything I have to do. I feel like there is not enough time to get everything done. Do you have any tips to help me balance everything? I also have a hard time starting assignments. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.  </span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClassC71FCB5694444DE48548886F149BFFF6"><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">We understand exactly what you are asking. College can be really overwhelming.  There is a lot going on when a person starts their college years.  What is important is to have a daily routine.  Make a calendar with your classes clearly marked.  Add due dates and assignments when needed.  Sometimes seeing things on paper can help a person organize.  You can also join study groups or spend time in the library where it is quiet and where others are doing exactly what you are.  </span></p><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">Many times colleges will offer a class to help you get used to college life and how to be successful.  Check with your college campus website or counseling center for that information.  </span></p><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">Most importantly, take care of yourself during this time.  Part of staying on track is taking care of your mental and physical health.  Get plenty of good sleep, eat good healthy food, drink plenty of water and take time to exercise. It will help alleviate the stress of doing it all.  The more routine you have, the better you will do and you will know what to expect each day. </span></p><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">This might help,  </span> <a href="/Pages/tip-study-habits.aspx"> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">http://www.yourlifeyourvoice.org/v2/Pages/tip-study-habits.aspx</span></a></p><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">We hope this has helped.  Please continue to reach out anytime you need to talk.
