One of the most important tools that I use to stay balanced is using a calendar to block out as much time as possible in my calendar. By visualizing the time I have throughout the week, I can better see where my free time blocks are and how to best utilize them. This is a strategy I used throughout heavy work weeks in high school, as I can find spaces to fit in work throughout my schedule. It has been very helpful here in Ireland, as our time also involves transportation and walking around, which are important factors to be counted in our time here. Additionally, it’s very easy to constantly be doing something here in Dublin, so having purposeful downtime is important to recover and be ready for the busy days ahead.
