Do you feel stressed out often? Is it hard to find a balance between school, sports, instruments, and friends? You're not alone. In fact, many people struggle with balancing out their lives. Everyone and everything in your life seems to be important, but you cannot be with everyone, and you cannot do everything. I often struggle with balancing my life around my activities, as I do volleyball, dance, play the french horn, and try to maintain good grades in school. There is always so much pressure to deal with, but it's never too late to improve your balance and time management skills!
