Efficient time management skills are always important but specifically in times like these. Creating strong time management habits may reduce stress and improve the quality of your life. Perhaps you now have too much time on your hands due to lack of structure and routine, or maybe too little time on your hands as you balance your personal life, work and studies. Either way, it’s important to pay attention to how you manage your time on a day-to-day basis. 

Here are some questions you might wanna ask yourself:

  1. Did I prioritize my tasks for the day?
  2. Am I following my to-do list and setting myself realistic timelines and goals? 
  3. Am I spending too much time on one task? 
  4. Am I taking my prescribed breaks for maximum efficiency and to care for my mental health?
  5. Is there work-life balance in the way I planned my I today? 
  6. Did I have time for personal care, hobbies, virtual social contact?

Curriculum questions: Where to start?
