Time Management Tips

Monday, 24 February 2014 07:17  by Emily S.

When we don’t give ourselves enough time to get tasks completed we may find that we become stressed, anxious and irritable. And usually the first thing we do when rushing to get things done is blame it on not having enough time. However, in most cases it isn’t the lack of time we have to finish our responsibilities, but not utilizing the time we do have. The first step towards managing our time efficiently is recognizing poor time management.

Next, write a to-do list giving yourself an allotted amount of time to finish each task. One trick teachers tell students when test taking is to come back to the problems that are taking you longer to complete. If you do this with tasks that you become stuck on it can prevent you from spending too much time on one chore and failing to finish all of them.

We can reward ourselves. Establishing a reward can help prevent distractions as well as give us motivation to complete our responsibilities. We might try to trick ourselves in to believing that one episode of our favorite TV show will give us the break needed to come back and finish that paper. Instead, it’s better to see this as a reward we will get after completing our task. This is motivation to stay on track as well as help us to avoid distractions.

If you feel overwhelmed with a particular task, then allow yourself to work in intervals. Doing so will reenergize the brain preventing you from becoming worn out, and allowing us to be more productive when we are working.
