4 Time Management Techniques for Students
In college, time is much more important. It is natural to look for ways to maximize it. Learn how you can do multiple tasks in a limited number of time. Below are some techniques for you to utilize your time efficiently.
  1. Know your priorities

When you have determined your priorities, you will know how much time you should allot for them. Whether it is a small task of organizing your school load to major tasks like reviewing for a big test, weighing your priorities is a must for students.

List down the things you will be spending your time on depending on their priority level: high, moderate, low. Homework usually has a high level of priority. Also include sports, hobbies, family time, exercise, and sleep on your list.

  1. Track your time

Logging your time can be an eye-opening method for you. You’ll simply know where your time goes, which is a great way to keep track of your time, spent or wasted. If you start documenting your time spent, you can properly utilize that information and turn it into a more productive habit.

With this, you will be much more aware of where time is lost and how long things take to finish. Then, you will know where you can fix areas that you think are underutilized and which you think you spend too much of your time on.

  1. Plan it out

One of the biggest keys to improving your time management skill is planning it out. When you have a basic timetable of the things you do, you have an organized way of doing work. And if you think that you can plan it all in your head, think again.

You can simply take down notes in your phone’s notes app or bring a small notebook with you where you can write down your tasks and responsibilities for easy tracking. Also, writing by hand is a proven way of remembering things. Remember that having a plan makes you in charge of everything.

  1. Schedule downtime

Working hard does not mean you should only focus on work and not your health, family, and social life. It is understandable how avoiding overscheduling just to manage time successfully can be tough. But always remember that time for yourself is as important as the others.

Being a student, you need to have enough hours of sleep from eight to 10 hours, as well as spend at least an hour of physical activity every day. Understand that your health should be your utmost priority. You need to fulfill these essential steps for you to stay healthy. You surely wouldn’t want to ruin your momentum by being sick. A person that has good time management skills prioritizes tasks while recognizing the free time spent.

We have 24 hours to spend in a day but the way we utilize it can be a total gamechanger. Make the most out of your school year by managing your time effectively.
