To study, or not to study? Heres advice for the right work and life balance at university.

When it comes to looking after your mental health, both work and play matter. At the University of Bolton, we care about student wellbeing and offer a counselling service for anyone who may be struggling with life at university.

Our friendly and supportive campus is a great place to learn and make friends, but we always advise students to have a balanced schedule, and enough time to hit the refresh button so they arent overwhelmed.

Heres a guide on how to achieve a good work and life balance, while still getting things done!

Buy a diary (and track your goals)

A week-to-view diary is great for keeping on top of your life at university, giving you a way to see lectures, study dates and social events at a glance.

Using a diary will help you figure out how much time you have left to relax and get back to neutral. Plus, its also great practice for the future as it prepares you for effective time management in the workplace.

If you want to make sure youre on track with monthly goals and objectives, it could also be beneficial to keep a bullet journal. This is the type of diary that is made up of simple bullet points and lists, including deadlines, to-do lists, short and long term goals, as well as plans and aspirations for the future.
