Procrastination can get the best of all of us. But avoiding homework, studying or projects never ends well. High school students have extremely busy schedules and it is important to stay on task and take control of your time management. Here are a few time management tricks to help you develop good skills for your whole life.
Create To-Do Lists
Making a to-do list can help you stay on track. Be sure to put the most important tasks at the top of the list and check them off as you go. Motivate yourself with rewards in between each task to keep you motivated.
Know When To Say No
If you know you have a big test or project coming up don’t make plans with friends the night before. Instead, reschedule to do something on another night when you have more time.
Find Your Productive Time
Pay attention to the time of the day that you are most efficient. Are you a morning or a night person? Once you’ve figured it out, plan your schedules accordingly and make time to get work done when you know you will succeed.
Get Enough Sleep
Make sure to get enough sleep each night, especially when finals come up. A good night of sleep will help you from getting sidetracked during work time.
