10 Tips for Managing Stess and Staying Productive

Navigating life at Envie means juggling academic commitments, social activities, personal well-being, and professional responsibilities. Here are 10 ways to cope with stress to help you thrive and stay productive during your time at Envie, Ottawa’s premium student housing. 

  • Create a Structured Schedule:

Build a routine that includes dedicated study hours, social interactions, exercise, relaxation time, and work-related tasks. Having a consistent schedule can improve your organization and time management skills across all areas of your life.

  • Set Realistic Goals:

Break down your academic tasks, work projects, and personal goals into manageable steps with achievable deadlines. Prioritize your tasks based on importance and urgency to make steady progress in all areas.

  • Prioritize Self-Care:

Make self-care a priority by incorporating activities like regular exercise in our 24-hour fitness centre, mindfulness practices, hobbies, and adequate sleep into your daily routine. Remember also to prioritize relaxation and downtime to recharge.

  • Keep Your Space Organized:

Maintain a clean and organized living environment to optimize your study, work, and relaxation areas. Use tools like planners or digital apps to stay on top of deadlines, meetings, and events both academically and professionally.

  • Utilize Support Services:

Take advantage of academic support, counselling services, and peer networks available at your school. For young professionals, seek mentorship opportunities, networking events, and professional development resources to support your career growth.

  • Practice Time Management:

Use time-blocking techniques to allocate specific time slots for different tasks, including work-related projects and academic assignments. Avoid multitasking to improve focus and productivity in both your studies and professional endeavours.

  • Take Regular Breaks:

Incorporate short breaks during study and work sessions to recharge and prevent burnout. Use this time for activities that relax and energize you, whether it’s a quick walk or listening to your favourite tunes. 

  • Stay Connected:

Engage with fellow residents and colleagues to build a strong support network. Participate in our weekly social events, snack and study sessions, and other networking opportunities to expand your connections and opportunities.

  • Manage Stress Effectively

Learn and practice stress-relief techniques such as deep breathing, mindfulness, or yoga; take advantage of the yoga and Muay Thai classes we offer every now and then. Identify your stress triggers both academically and professionally (e.g. finances, poor work-life balance, perfectionism), and develop effective coping strategies to navigate challenges with resilience.

  • Celebrate Your Achievements:

Acknowledge and celebrate your progress and successes in all areas of your life, including academics and work. Reward yourself for reaching milestones and meeting goals to stay motivated and positive throughout your journey as a student and young professional.

By implementing these strategies, you can create a balanced and fulfilling experience during your stay at our rental apartment in Ottawa while also setting a solid foundation for your academic and professional success. Remember, managing multiple responsibilities is a skill that improves with practice, so be patient with yourself and prioritize self-care and growth along the way.
