Studying and working simultaneously can become a major generator of stress and anxiety. People of all ages are engaged in a race in which the motivation, how to manage time or the nature of the courses, seem to be decisive.
Although ‘conviction and desire’ can make you achieve everything, a number of guidelines are highly recommended.
The most reputable coach based its sessions on a number of basic principles…we share them with you below.
- Organization and planning: The worker and student life is quite busy. Start by using the that ‘time of whining’ (it drains all of your energy) to create new habits that improve the organization of the little time you have. Avoid jumping from one task to another. Start the day with a clear idea of what tasks need to be done that day no matter what. If you are not using a “traditional agenda”, there are mobile apps as -Todoist, Google Keep or Evernote- to help you make those appointments that can not be delayed under any circumstance. Write down your challenges and complete them. You will see by yourself; It feels GOOD.
- Reserve one day … to do nothing: Yes, to do nothing. It is extremely important in order to prevent (physical and especially psychological) exhaustion. From now on, reserve a day to get away from everything and everyone. Go out with your friends, do sports, go to the movies. The next day you will realize: you’ll have renewed energy completely.
- Never forget why you’re where you are. Get motivated. Motivation is one of the key factors. Do not forget that you are privileged. Your situation, though stressful will pay off. Where others see insurmountable obstacles that prevent achieving their goals and lead them to immerse themselves in an easy and “boring” life, you have found an opportunity to resume your vocation and pursue your dreams. Be proud of what is still to come.
- Choose distance learning. The online courses are the best choice for those who want to combine studies and work. For your convenience, efficiency and accessibility, eLearning educational methodology, seems excellent for your circumstances. Itineraries occupational risk as the course or event planning course are an excellent choice to improve your resume without quitting your job.
