Description:


Are you currently in university and exploring the idea of being involved in sports? Maybe, you’re worried about being able to find a balance between academics and physical activities. If you pull all-nighters religiously or buy a dissertation, you will have much more free time at your disposal to stay on track. Regardless of what you choose to do, in order to achieve success in both spheres, you’ll surely have to develop a custom schedule to suit your unique routine. There’s a plethora of recommendations and tips online from students who have themselves successfully combined university and sports, and here are the most useful ones.

 

1. Set your priorities straight

While being involved in sports has never been easy, it at least has a set of goals and objectives you are to achieve over the season. On the other hand, academics may not always be like this. If you are to complete a 50-page reading online, submit 3 personal reflection assignments, and outline your dissertation by the end of the week, Paperial suggests that you focus on more important tasks first. Take into account the deadlines and approximate time needed to complete each assignment, including a dissertation. With this in mind, you’ll be able to develop a custom schedule for keeping up with your academics.

2. Choose a major you enjoy

Of course, this point applies to each and every student as an enjoyable major is half of the success in college. If you’re interested in the topic of your dissertation and in the subjects you are to study, it’s likely that you won’t have to force yourself to prepare assignments. More than that, if you’re worried about how to complete a dissertation when you’re involved in sports, remind yourself that many students have already done the same, and you can easily find their stories and tips online. Not only will interesting subjects motivate and inspire you to keep up with the academic requirements but also intrigue you regarding the possibilities of a future profession.

3. Communicate with your professors

College professors are just as human as you are, which is why communication is the key. While they may not let you abandon education to do sports, they are likely to be understanding and supportive of your decision to pursue both. Explain to them that you’re interested in both academics and sports and, if needed, ask to submit assignments online or take tests early. Arguing with professors over your attendance or grades will never help you, but discussing the opportunity of developing custom and relatively flexible schedule will not only show that you’re interested in academics but also support you on your way to success.

4. Manage your time well

As we all know, athletic practices usually become routine. In order to manage your time well, be sure to make academics a routine, as well. Give yourself enough time to complete homework. Of course, this can be hard if you’re preparing for a competition or traveling, but you can either study online or complete assignments early. The first rule to keep in mind is that you have to plan ahead and not put everything off until the last moment. In such a way, a custom schedule that’s developed to suit your routine will help you on your way of becoming a student-athlete.

5. Focus on self-care

We know that university and sports may take up a lot of your time but taking time to step back and take care of yourself is always important. It is highly unlikely that anyone has ever succeeded by writing a dissertation by night, doing workouts by day, and eating instant ramen in between. In order to be successful in both of the fields that interest you, discover the essence of being healthy. Prepare your meals, discover stress management techniques, and get enough sleep. By doing so, you’ll ensure that your energy levels will last through the vibrant life of a student-athlete.

While being successful in both academics and sports may seem like a hard task, many students have succeeded in doing so. If you implement these tips in your daily routine, you have all the chances of becoming a student-athlete. Remember that nothing really comes without hard work, and if you’re interested in combining university and sports, be sure to follow your passion.
