Time, or the lack of it, has been a consistent issue for many. For us college students, it's no exception. Managing your day so that you have sufficient time for all the activities you need or want to do can be difficult. Here are some tips that can make the process easier for you.

1. Know your schedule for the week ahead of time.

Having a general idea of what the week holds keep me on top of things. The sense of being in control builds confidence, which is important for your general prosperity and happiness. Furthermore, knowing your schedule allows you to distribute your workload more evenly, so that cramming or all-nighters don’t occur.

2. Make a schedule for your day.

Organizing your day helps you keep track of what you need to do and how long you have to do it. Having your daily workload outlined allows you to spend more time doing your work instead of stressing over how to go about your day. A schedule also provides you with a checklist of activities. Once you’ve completed all of them, your day would be more fruitful and you’ll feel more accomplished. So, on top of professional benefits, making a schedule can improve your day as well.

3. Don't panic if you have a lot to do.

Our workload as students can be very heavy on occasions. Having to deal with so many assignments can be overwhelming. Sometimes, we see how much they have to do and decide to leave our work for later. Although tempting and often practiced, procrastination is not the best alternative because the work is still going to be there afterwards. So although sometimes deciding to just do your work right away is difficult, it can prove to be fruitful.

4. Include leisure time in your plans.

Leisure is very important for a person’s health. Allocating time in your schedule specifically for leisure would increase the importance of taking breaks and you can actually do something fun or just rest.

5. Change your routine if it isn't working well for you.

Experiment with your routine. Once you’ve established a schedule try it out and see what aspects of it work for you. If the way you’ve organized your day doesn’t suit you, change it and find a better option. Improving your routine can save you a lot of time, which you can send differently.

This list is by no means extensive or comprehensive. Each person has their own way of going about the day, so you should find an option that works best for you. For me these tips are effective, so I recommend them to anyone who is willing to try.
