Working and studying simultaneously is often touted as the pinnacle of productivity, as each minute of your life is spent on something valuable to your future - education or finances.
However, it may be a challenge for some to handle both a career and studying at the same time, and the pressure to keep it up may create a large amount of tension, greatly affecting the lives of the individuals who choose to do so. The stress and anxiety can be felt especially by those who must work while studying out of necessity.
When one area of life becomes too much to handle, it is disheartening to have to drop a job because you're not performing, and need to focus more on your education. Even more so, when the reverse is necessary. So to help, here are some tips for balancing work and study.
Working while studying is already a feat in and of itself, and requires a lot of organisation, self-motivation, time management, and flexibility. Whether it's a personal choice, or out of necessity, we're proud of those who make the bold decision to commit to the lifestyle. Be honest with yourself throughout this journey, and make sure that taking care of yourself is still a priority. If you ever need a break from either working or studying, take it: rest is not a sign of failure, but a pause before success.
