You're an honor student, a class officer, a member of the soccer team, a soloist in your church's choir, and the resident party-planner in your barkada. Whew!

You're a well-rounded, busy gal who lives an electrically supercharged life with an ultra-packed schedule to match. You run a daily race trying to beat time, deadlines, and frazzled nerves.

The question is: How should you balance all your responsibilities while maintaining your sanity and your happy outlook? Gear up by following these steps to making you reign as an excellent, all-round teen queen!

1. Make a Battle-Plan.

Assess your situation and make a general checklist of all the activities you plan to accomplish. Review your priorities and then figure out what needs immediate attention.

What do you spend too much time on? What do you spend too little time on, but would like to give more time to? Do you work better individually or are you more productive when you work with others? What time of the day are you most energetic and most likely to breeze through any task?

As in any battle-plan, focus on what you're good at and then allocate ample time to work on your weaknesses. That way, you'll know what to do when you discover you have to pull an all-nighter with your group mates when you're a morning person who’s more efficient when working alone.
