Keeping My Balance

Do you find it tough to keep a balance among school, activities, friends, and family?

Ella
Sometimes, but I think that I am pretty good at that.

How do you make a choice if you have two things scheduled for the same time?
Ella
I make my decision based on what is most important to me even if other people would like me to do something else.

Do you ever feel like you’re doing “too much”?
Ella
Well, I usually only have one after school activity. If I had more I wouldn’t be as excited about it and it would start to feel like it wasn’t fun.

Why do you think it’s important to have time alone at home with nothing planned?
Ella
If you have too much going on you’ll get stressed and not have time for other fun things that you didn’t expect.

What’s your best tip for managing time?
Ella
My best tip for managing time is don’t be afraid to say no! If you keep saying yes your days will fill up pretty quickly. Also, save time for just relaxing.
