Don’t overload your schedule

We know it’s tempting, but you have to work hard to resist that temptation. If you put something off until the last minute you’re not going to give yourself enough time to finish the project. And it’s going to make you crazy. Trust us on this one.
Take advantage of down time
Instead of watching your laundry go round and round in the dryer, why not study?
Make realistic to-do lists
Set realistic goals instead of super lofty ones, which you will probably not get done anyway.
Take care of yourself
If you don’t take care of yourself, you may get sick. If you get sick, you’re going to have to take time to get well, time that could be better spent accomplishing what you need to.
Make time for things you enjoy
If you don’t have a little fun, you’ll burn out. If you burn out, well, you probably know what will happen. Make sure you make time to do something you enjoy.
You’re going to need enough sleep so that you perform well. If not, your grades may suffer.
