It’s perfectly logical.
In fact it is their right.
Yes! There’s no arguing that their demands are valid.
You need to make time for each and every one in your life. Period!
Everything wants a piece of the cake, but is this task really a piece of cake? I am sure this is the cry of so many students now. I mean not all of us can be “superwomen” and juggle and the various aspects of our lives flawlessly.
First of let me say this. We all like to see ourselves as movie characters. But characters have scripts. The only scripts we rely on are our instincts, feelings, heart and mind.
There is no laid down formula to break down the issue of making time for everything in your life. However, I would like to share certain tips that could help you not feel like a ragdoll with everything pulling at your limbs.
1. Set your priorities damn straight.
This may sound like something from a motivational book but look at it this way. An athlete will probably avoid eating a whole bucket of fried chicken for weeks not because he/she suffers from lack of taste buds. But fast forward to 2 months the athlete is able to win the marathon because of endurance and fitness. He/she wins a medal, breaks a world record and has his/her pasted on every known magazine.
Would you rather be in your room always licking your fingers from tasty treats or be out there changing your life and inspiring others?
Hope this analogy made sense. All I am saying is try looking at the bigger picture in the end.
2. Think of the sensations you feel.
How one feels about a particular thing is by far the most important thing in making a choice. If this activity is going to result in making you feeling relaxed, like spending some time with the family on the beach, go for it. Instead of stumbling out of a club drunk with your “clique”, with a killer hangover before class the next day.
I am not condemning friendships because they are basically your support base, motivation, source of strength and spa (for the ladies) all wrapped up in one with a ribbon on it. But let your fiends be people who will actually open your eyes to consequences of actions. Not ones who blatantly lie.
3. Let it go!
If at some point in time, you feel like taking some time off school (unofficially) and doing your favorite sport will help you clear your head, just go for it! Hobbies relax us unconsciously so it may be good idea to create time for one or two of your own.

“Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to.”
