Managing School Slam Times -Stress

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!Managing School Slam Times -Stress

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.
