  • Balance Study, Work & Life

    It is difficult to balance study & life (sleep, relationships, social life and work). If you spend too much time on study you may not study effectively because you have lost the chance to recharge yourself. If you spend too much time on non study activities you will not have enough time to study. Balance study & life well and you will achieve the best you can. This workshop will help you get the balance right.

    A certain amount of stress and worry are an inevitable and necessary part of being a student. If stress and worry become too much, they interfere with study. If you manage stress and worry correctly you will become a more successful student. Stress and worry can be managed by developing a lifestyle that keeps them under control. This workshop will describe that lifestyle.
