Tools in Time Management

Managing time is a difficult task. The goal is to accomplish everything on our "to do" lists. Following are some tips to help make the most of the hours in your day. Use a planner to keep track of events and assignments, including setting aside time to relax. When you have multiple tasks to accomplish, prioritize the things you wish to do. Be careful to avoid over planning and assigning yourself too many things to do in one day. If staying focused on your assignments is difficult, try setting a timer and focusing on a task for a certain amount of time before taking a break. Don't forget to optimize your work environment, whether this means going to the library or shutting off the television. For more tips on how to manage your time, contact Jess Sanford, Jennifer Caudill, Beth Esposito or Clare Edwards in Counseling Services.
