Hi, Hellen! I would agree - time management can be difficult when creating a study system for yourself. However, there are definitely a few things you can do to help make the process a little easier! First, try to identify your learning style. I've posted a link below that will help you discover yours and provide you with some applicable study tips based on your results. Personally, I'm a visual learner so I liked to create study guides for myself. By writing down the important concepts, I was able to visualize what I had written and pull from it during exams. Everyone's different though, so try to reflect on how you best remember things.

I would also recommend buying a planner so you can mark out your exams in advance. By scheduling out your exams, you can better plan for when you should start studying. Depending on the material, you can decide if you need weeks to study or days. I'm not much of a crammer, so I liked to give myself plenty of time. In doing so, I was able to master small portions of material at a time - much easier than trying to learn everything at once.

Along that line of thought, try to stay up to date with the material being taught in class. That means doing the reading when assigned and asking questions in class along the way. It can be easy to get behind but try to prioritize classes based on what you feel the most comfortable in. If you're great in one area, you probably need a little less time to get caught up than with a subject you have a little more difficulty in.

It's a balancing act that can take some time to get a feel for, but it gets easier with practice!

Best of luck!

You will need to focus on stress and time management. In order to manage stress you have to manage your time wisely. <span style="background-color: transparent;">You have to set a routine for yourself and stick to it for the most part. Once you get into the groove of a routine it will be much easier for you to manage your time and have enough time for everything you need to do (including relaxing). Make yourself to-do lists on a weekly basis, use Google calendar or a planner to keep track of events, deadlines, and due dates. In addition to setting a routine and sticking to it, plan out relaxing activities into your day. Or set aside a time, after everything is done for the day, that you can have "me" time. I have also personally found it essential to not only find time for myself but also make use of that time in a way that is best for me and my holistic wellness. I have found the HeadSpace app to be an essential tool in helping me relax and generally feel more relaxed throughout the day, Guided meditation, even if you have a busy schedule, will make you feel more at ease and relaxed throughout the day as a whole (not just when you have the time to relax and focus on that "me" time).</span>
