While being in school for a healthcare program can be overwhelming, balance can be achieved by gradually making small changes and building on those successes. Small changes can have a significant impact. Start implementing things like having a daily routine, a daily practice of writing in your journal, finding gratitude every day, etc. Here is a toolkit, specifically for college students.
