我曾经认为成功需要我每天长时间地做功课，并且在这些时间里不受干扰地努力工作. The issue with that is I would become burnt out faster than I expected. 我被所有的工作弄得筋疲力尽，我再也没有动力去做任何功课了. Becoming burnt out had a negative effect on my mental 健康, as I was always stressed out and exhausted.
This affected both my social 生活 and my academic 生活, as my grades were not where they should have been.
When I was constantly working, 我再也没有时间和周围的人建立和维持关系了, and I felt that I was drifting away from my friends. 我很快意识到社交生活和做功课一样重要. In
生活, everything is about having a perfect balance, and although it is not always easy to find this balance, 重要的是要不断努力保持平衡，确保你不会花太多时间做一件事，而没有足够的时间做另一件事.
Now that I am not only prioritizing my academic 生活, I am also finding that I no longer have a feeling of burnout, and I have more motivation when it comes to studying. 这意味着我的成绩提高了，因为我的平均成绩提高了大约5%. But to me, that is not what's important. 对我来说，重要的是我的心理健康得到了很大的改善，因为我不再像以前那样感到不知所措. Most importantly, 总的来说，我觉得我是一个更快乐的人，我希望我的快乐能反映在我的朋友和周围的人身上.
