Tip of the Day

How Can I Manage my Time Better?

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the structure of our daily routines has rapidly changed. This routine may have involved waking up early to fit a workout in before heading to campus for classes. It may have involved studying for an upcoming assessment in-between classes throughout the day. Or, rushing off to an evening shift after classes have ended for the day.

As many of us may know, effective time management is possible when you feel in control of your time. Amid COVID-19 cases emerging and the uncertainty of when schedules will return to normal, it can feel like you cannot plan because it is unclear what tomorrow will bring. Being present in the moment and creating short-term goals for ourselves is manageable.

 

Supports for You!
