Not finding enough time to get all of your to-do’s done? Looking for a way to combat the “Work Forest” attitude that so many students get overwhelmed by? Struggling to find a routine? Stressed so much that you can’t even take care of yourself? Take a look at our top 5 Time Management Tips!
1) Create a Month-at-a-Glance Calendar
This can be a reference for all of the important dates heading your way in the upcoming month. Large desk calendars can easily be found for under $5 at your local Walmart.
2) Establish a Weekly Priority List
Use a planner to outline the most important to-do’s for the week on a day to day basis. This can help keep you on track and establish a routine.
3) Write down your Semester Goals
By determining your goals for the semester, you can better plan out how you want to spend your time.
4) Find a Balance
If you can develop a routine that covers all of your bases – eating, sleeping, exercising, studying, socializing, and attending extracurriculars to name a few – you’ll be a much happier person and be more successful in the long run.
Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. We’re not superheroes. Realize that there’s only so much you can do in a day! Take a deep breath, go for a short walk, meditate…do whatever you can do to separate yourself from the grind and relax, even if it’s just for a few minutes.
