1. Create a to-do list

Laying out the scope of your week on paper will give you the opportunity to clearly see the projects, events, and activities you will be working on for the upcoming week. Not only will this give you the chance to manage your time accordingly throughout each day, but it will also allow you to see your progress along the week as you begin to cross your tasks off. An important thing to remember about to-do lists is that they are fluid—meaning things can get added or eliminated as your week progresses and things begin to unfold.

2. Prioritize your to-do list.

Establishing a clear order within your to-do list will give you the opportunity to have a starting point. This starting point will allow you to clearly see the tasks that require immediate attention and those that will continue to unfold throughout the week. A crucial aspect that comes along with prioritizing to-dos is scheduling clear timeslots to begin and finish tasks. In addition to providing a sense of structure, timeslots will allow you to fully focus on one activity at a time rather than attempt to complete many over a few hours. Through this process, you will realize the power that clear deadlines for each task in terms of your time-management and organization skills—helping you complete each task in no time.

3. Schedule reminders on your phone for big deadlines

Do you have a big test this week? A major internship or job interview? A fun event on campus that you don't want to miss?

Setting up reminders on your phone will provide quick follow-ups on what's to come and will also give you a clear idea of the days when you have more downtime.

4. Write down 2-3 activities you will do for fun.

You read that right…plan for fun! Even if you are approaching a hectic week, it is important to schedule time for some self-care. Do you enjoy working out? Having a spa day with your roommate? Catching the latest episode of your favorite show?

Whatever some of your favorite pastimes may be, it is imperative to set time aside to relax, reflect, and recharge. Most importantly, as you find some time to enjoy yourself remember to BE PRESENT. Don't think about the things that still need to get done tonight, tomorrow, or three days from now…focus instead on fully engaging in the activities you are participating in. Trust me, you'll thank yourself later!
