    Every person handles the stresses that they feel differently. It is best to try to think of healthy ways to juggle it all. Include your parents or a trusted adult in helping you figure out how to manage it all, so that you can learn from their mistakes.

    As importantly, stay organized so that you can avoid feeling overwhelmed. This can be a daunting task, but if you just take a step back, relax, and plan ahead you will succeed. Try developing a calender or planner to better organize your time and get you on a schedule that lets you devote the appropriate time to each activity.

    Get your homework and required tasks done earlier in the day so that it is not hanging over your head at night. Earlier in the day when you are less tired, people tend to think more clearly and can often complete tasks (such as homework) more efficiently and effectively than if they study when they are tired.

    Get your required tasks (like homework) done, but make sure that you also make time for your self to do things you like, exercising, caring for yourself, and spending time with friends and loved ones If you get off the schedule because one activity took longer than expected, then adjust your schedule accordingly so that you can get your required tasks done.

    If you choose to utilize a planner as mentioned above, be sure to stick with it for at least a few days. It may be hard at first, but eventually you’ll get into a routine that works for you. Making sure that you have balance is the key.
