How to stay sane during college/university

Something you might have noticed if you’ve been following my blog for a while is that many of my posts are related to what my life looks like at the moment and how I am dealing with that. This post is no exception. So, while I am still trying to figure out how I all manage it, maybe you can get some ideas from what I’ve found and perhaps you’ve got some good suggestions for me.


I’ve meditated for a couple of years now and I tend to do it each morning, but university life was so hectic that I just couldn’t make it happen. Now I am determined to start again because I know it makes a huge difference. Meditating each morning or evening gives you a chance to clear your head, which is just what you need when you have a lot of things on your mind

Set aside time for yourself

I know that some days this feels like it’s totally impossible but I can assure you that there is some time that you can spend on yourself doing whatever you like. This time can be spent on calling a friend, watching a movie or reading your favorite book. Whatever helps you relax is fine, half an hour each day is enough.

Try to eat healthily

With all the partying you might want to do, or the study snack you might be craving, eating healthy all the time is just not fun. But it is a good idea to try and eat healthy most of the time, then you’ll be able to afford a pizza once in a while without gaining weight and feeling sick. Good food will give you more energy to study and do all the things you love as well.


I know that I have a lot less time to exercise now then I did last year, but I still try to do it as many times as possible. Exercising is good for you, it gives you a lot of energy and it can be fun when you choose the right thing to do. Why would you now want to do it?

It doesn’t even have to be expensive to exercise as well, there are many things you can do at home, like yoga, or outside, like running.

Make the most of planning

Anyone who reads this blog knows how big I am on planning, and I need it now more than ever. So, I would definitely recommend you to get a planner and use it to know when you have social activities, when you have assignments due and when you have other stuff to take care. You will be a lot less stressed out when you know what is coming your way.

Get enough sleep

This is one thing I struggle with quite a bit, but I always notice how good it feels when I do get enough sleep. So I would recommend you to try and always sleep enough, even if that means taking a nap in between lectures, there’s nothing wrong with that if it keeps you going for the rest of the day.

Of course, there are many more tips, but then this is going to be too long. Perhaps I will write a part 2 at some point when I found my own sanity back. For now, I would love to hear any tips that you guys have. I am most curious
