Immersive #12: Calendar

Creator’s Note: Today’s article explores the idea of scheduling and how college students prioritize their time. Often times, we focus heavily on allocating our time to events or opportunities that will benefit us professionally in hopes that it will best set us up for our future. And while making time to grow and gain new skills is beneficial and should be encouraged, it is when we take it too far and overload our schedules that we run the risk of burnout. We have to remind ourselves that investing in our own mental and physical health is also a valid usage of our time and should be kept in mind when deciding how to spend our spare time.

As always, let me know your thoughts on the medium and the story if you have any, and I shall see you all in Immersive’s next article!
