When making a commitment to getting a degree, you can be sure your schedule will fills up, and your stress levels will rise. You will count the days until your next vacation when time is – once again – on your side. But, before those stress levels rise, realize that the old “time is on your side” cliché holds true 24/7, no matter your life circumstances. To keep stress in check while getting your degree, time management is a must. Here are five tips for mastering time management: 1. Time is your greatest asset in life. You get to choose how you spend it. Time as an asset is a hard concept to embrace, in part, because it means we all have to stop making excuses. Instead of saying, “I can’t exercise because I don’t have time,” we have to admit, “I choose not to exercise because I’m not prioritizing it into my schedule.” We are all personally responsible for our lives, and how we spend our time is a direct reflection of how well we embrace time management. When I was a stressed-out college student, I blamed others for my lack of time management. I believed the only way I could lower my stress levels was if my professors stopped dishing out so much homework. Instead of learning better time management strategies and easing up on my own perfectionism, I made excuses. Every semester, I felt more overwhelmed. Eventually, I let anxiety, depression, insomnia, and stress usurp my life. Bottom line: Take control over your time – right now – and be calmer and happier for the rest of your life. 2. Time management means learning to say NO. According to Beverly Coggins, professional organizer and author of the e-book, Three Steps to Time Management for the College Student, “You can determine how you use your time or, by default, let others plan it for you.” Coggins believes we need to have a grasp on our own passions and priorities so that we’re in a stronger position to avoid being led around by the whims of others. “By determining your own passions and priorities, it gives you confidence to stay focused on where you want to go in life,” Coggins said. Bottom line: College students are supposed to be self-focused. You’re not a selfish person if you choose to be empowered by your own goals. Plus, when you take care of yourself first, you’ll have more energy to be there for your friends and family. 3. Skipping class = more stress. Skipping class causes college students more stress in the long run. Think about it: You miss class notes, class discussion, repetition of materials, interacting with your classmates, and you’re wasting money. If you calculate how much money you’re spending per college class and then divide it by how many classes there are in a semester, you may be surprised to realize that you skipped out on a class that could very easily have exceeded one-to-several hundred dollars. Ugh! I’ve skipped my fair share of classes. Trust me – playing catch up is no fun. Be honest: how much time do you spend trying to decipher your friend’s shorthand when you borrow her class notes? How much time is spent tracking down your professor during office hours? Bottom line: Unless it’s a true emergency, go to class. 4. Sleep saves time. According to Coggins, sleep should be the first thing that goes on our master schedules. Why? “Sleep deprivation has the same affect on you as alcohol,” she said. “Your reaction time is slow, you can’t think clearly, you gain weight, and you can get depressed.” Think about how much time we waste napping during the day because we don’t sleep enough at night. Coggins advises that college students figure out ways to reduce interruptions to sleep like investing in earplugs, a fan, or a sleeping mask. Bottom line: Don’t sacrifice your shut eye because sleep deprivation is the true time waster. 5. Procrastinators can master time management. Procrastination is a common problem for those working towards a degree. In fact, nearly two-thirds of students say they’ve procrastinated so much that it affected their performance on an exam, paper, or course grade, according to a recent College Health Services survey. Coggins suggests college students take advantage of those first few weeks of the semester – when there is less pressure – to keep up with assignments. Here are some simple ways to escape falling victim to procrastination: Break large tasks up into bite-sized pieces and estimate how much time each piece will take. Working backwards from your deadline, schedule in each piece of your task. Plan in breaks. Do something totally different that relaxes you or invigorates you – take a walk, listen to music, whatever refreshes you. Know your peak energy time. If you are a morning person, don’t attempt overwhelming tasks at night and vice versa. Study with friends or family. Just make sure you choose friends that won’t help you procrastinate! Bottom line: Steer clear of procrastination temptations, especially when you have a deadline looming. (Pascucci 2013)
