Time management is a great tool for managing your stress, improving your productivity, and ensuring that you're making time for your health and well-being needs, like getting enough sleep and remaining physically active!
Tips for Time Management
- At the beginning of each week or each day, create a to-do list of all the tasks you wish to complete. Look at each task and ask yourself.
- What is most important and urgent?
- What is important but not urgent?
- What is not important but urgent?
- What is not important and not urgent?
- Say "no" to requests that adds more stress to your life or more obligations to your plate. When saying "no," be direct, honest, and respectful.
- Understand that we only have so many hours in a day so be realistic in how you're planning your day.
- While it's important to complete tasks on you to-do list, it's equally (if not more important) to make time for your health and well-being! Make sure you're prioritizing your health and well-being by going to bed at a reasonable time and scheduling time to move your body at least 30 minutes each day.
- Schedule in 20-30 minute breaks for every . Breaks restore our energy and allow us to meet the demands of daily life.
