In high school, high schoolers have a million things on their plate to do. It is hard to find time to fit everything in because time is so precious to high schoolers and they don’t want it wasted. This week on Ask The Ink, we will be giving tips on how to manage school, relationships, extra curriculars, and jobs. The key to time management is balance. Once you find a balance between everything, you will have achieved how to manage your time. Here are tips on how to find balance and to achieve time management.

  1. Prioritize wisely- Do the important and urgent tasks first. Then, you can move onto the tasks that are less important. For example, if you have an English essay due in three days and a math assignment due tomorrow. You would do the assignment that is due first.
  2. Plan ahead- Figure out what you have going on the week before or the night before. Then, set aside a few minutes to figure out your week or day. When you have a plan you will likely be productive with your tasks.
  3. Eliminate distractions- The phone is the #1 thing that distracts us from getting anything done. If we go to an area where our phone isn’t or put it away, we will get our work doe without our constant notifications or temptations to check social media.
  4. Take care of yourself- When a person gets enough sleep and exercise they have a more alert mind. Their functioning brain will be more willing to do the tasks and not waste time.
  5. Saying no- A lot of the time we help people when they ask, but that means putting their needs in front of your own. Although this is good, it isn’t good when it clashes with the amount of stuff on your plate. Don’t feel bad for declining an offer if you have urgent tasks to do.
