The University lifestyle is one that encourages flexibility, however despite this, it is still really important that you find a routine that works effectively for you.
One of the beauties of University, is that time management and structure is in your hands, so use this to your advantage.
For example, if you know that you work better first thing in the mornings, why not dedicate mornings to work that perhaps requires more concentration?
Likewise, if you are somebody that finds it easier to work in the evenings, structure your day to allow you to do this.
After being in education or a work environment where there is much more emphasis on having a regimented routine, the flexibility of university can sometimes be difficult to navigate.
Try to remember that not everybody can have the same routine but figuring out what works well for you can be really beneficial and add structure to your week.
University for many is likely to be very different this year, and have more pressures and strains on students, so it’s important to make sure you factor in time for yourself and the things you enjoy into your daily routine.
Whether this is going to a coffee shop, going to the gym or reading your favourite book, make sure to give yourself time to relax and do the things you enjoy.
