Why do students with stress so often end up with a time crunch or a slew of unfinished, yet due, projects? Simply because of a lack of time management and learning those skills. I know … you’ve already heard that. Right? But what do you do now when you realize you simply have a very limited amount of time? It’s an honest question, especially now that it is too late for time management!
For slam times:
- Keep a running list of assignments and tests in due order.
- Put extra-curriculars on hold.
- Think ahead -plan ahead.
- Break each project or assignment down into manageable bites.
- Turn off the cellphone or leave it somewhere else!
- Give your remote to your game system to a trusted friend -guarding it as a reward for when you are finished.
- Easy to fix meals.
- Healthy snacks on hand.
