Tip of the Week: Time Management

1. Write down everything - Even if you think you’ll remember a due date or something you have to do at work, write it down

2. Use your phone for good - Your phone can serve as an on-the-go calendar and scheduler.

3. Stick to a routine - Create a routine at the beginning of the semester so you can adjust to it early and then see if you have leftover time for other engagements.

4. Be healthy - Regular exercise can keep your energy levels up and getting adequate sleep at night can save time and increase your alertness and decrease your stress levels.

5. Stay organized - Save some time and avoid clutter by having separate binders, notebooks, and folders for each class.

6. Checklists are your friend - Having lists can be a helpful way of remembering everything you need to get done.

7. Find a balance - It’s okay to recognize when you are overwhelmed and to ask for help.
