Transcript of Time Management for College Students
your expectations. Time Management Success for College Students Time is your most valuable resource! SCHOOL IS A FULL TIME JOB. Think sleep is overrated? Sleep should be the first thing you schedule to calm stress.
Schedule between 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Not getting enough sleep can cause students to not think clearly, gain weight and become depressed, ALL of which can affect your studies! Not getting enough sleep at night? Whether you are a "night owl" or a "morning person" is determined by your internal biological clocks, called Circadian rhythms.
Knowing this, you can make more efficient use of your time by scheduling certain types of activities at the appropriate time of the day. Cognitive or mental tasks, such as reading and problem solving, are best performed between 8 am - 12 noon.
*Night owls should perform these tasks 3-4 hours later in the day. Short term memory tasks, such as last-minute reviewing for a test, are best performed between 6 am - 10 am.
*Night owls should perform these tasks 3-4 hours later in the day. Longer term memory tasks, such as memorizing a speech, are best performed between 1 pm - 4 pm.

things to do and
all of them are due
next week! 4 Steps of Micro Time Management: 1. List Goals
2. Organize & Prioritize
3. Formulate a Plan
4. Schedule & GO! Once you have your goals listed, prioritize your list using A's, B's & C's.
A: Vital/must get done (now or immediately)
B: Important/must get done (may be put off)
C: Optional (may be put off indefinitely) Take the offensive with a planner. Planners help you:
1. See the big picture
2. Plan ahead to avoid last-minute efforts
3. Be time efficient Choose a planner that you are likely to carry around with you.
Use a pencil to write in dates. Things change. Tips for using a planner: Procrastinators CAN master time management. -After completing a task, reward yourself. With repetition, you'll come to associate that good feeling with completing a task. -Often, we procrastinate because a task seems too lengthy. Break a lengthy task into smaller pieces and accomplish it in parts. -Plan breaks. Take a 15 minute break for every 45 minutes of studying or working on the assigned task. Do something completely different that what you've been working on, something that invigorates you. If you're taking 15 hours of classes, plan to spend at least 30 hours per week studying. Work a maximum of 20 hours per week. Don't try to juggle too many things. Put the big rocks in first. PLAN to accomplish your biggest goals or tasks first. Work down from your most important tasks to your smallest, least important. Use only spare time to do those things you labeled with a "C" on your priority list. That way, you'll get more accomplished in the long run. PLAN AHEAD Time management means
learning when to say "NO". College students are supposed to be self-focused. Having a grasp on your own priorities will help you manage your stress level. Skipping class actually increases your stress and adds more to your plate than simply going to class would have. Make a promise to yourself not to miss class unless an emergency occurs. GO TO CLASS. List your goals Take a few minutes at the beginning of every day or week and list everything you need to get done for that amount of time.
Don't leave anything out! Include the small things, as well as the big things, in your list. I feel confident that I
can manage my time! Parkinson's Law: "...work expands to fill the amount of time available." Limit the time available or that you want to spend on a particular task or activity, and you can control the workload
and prevent yourself from being overburdened. Especially limit the "time wasters".
