What are some things I could do to help me manage my time?

between school, work, exercise, and trying to have some type of social life, how am I supposed to maintain it all without losing one, or my sanity? I always like to keep a planner, and write things down on a calendar so I can physically see it, but I feel like I still need more help, any suggestions? #help #time-management

<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>

Dear Rebacca,
You can manage your time effectively by just planning it before the time
ensure that you schedule your tasks and deadlines, start your tasks early , prioritize your tasks and use technology to help keep you accountable.
Having a plan for your time , recognize your distractions and plan to minimize them.

If you maintain a work-study-life balance, schedule wisely your work and study , prioritize your tasks, socialize and have fun along the way.
College life you can have more fun along with having work. Ensure that you get to class on time, make a proper study schedule , take advantage of extracurricular Lectures and Seminars and take care of your mental and physical health.

Hi Rebecca,

Great question! A book my co-worker purchased to help with Time Management is "What Got You Here Won't Get You There" -Marshall Goldsmith
I would say give yourself grace to learn and adapt. Each experience you have you will become better with time management. Budget your time like you would your finances. Do something to start the day for yourself, whether that is prayer or meditation or reading or exercise. Then do the task that is urgent and important first. Then do the task that is urgent but not as important. Then do the task that is important but not urgent. Lastly leave the non urgent and non important tasks for when you have time.
