Tips to Manage Time and Mental Well-being While Being a Student 

Time management is one of the most important aspects of being a student. Without proper time management, your mental well-being will suffer. You can become anxious, stressed, and depressed, and it will be hard to enjoy college life. Follow these tips to manage your time and your mental well-being while you’re a student.

Look for Ways You’re Wasting Time

From social media to texting and web browsing, it’s easy to waste time. Look at the ways you waste time and then create a plan to avoid them. For instance, do you text too much when studying? Put your phone on silent and don’t look at it when you’re doing schoolwork. When you avoid time-wasting activities, you will feel less stressed and happier. 

Use a Planner

You are likely pretty busy as a student. With so much to do, it’s a good idea to write it all down. You can enter your tasks on your phone, a calendar, or even use a planner. Every time you have something to do, enter it to make sure you don’t overextend yourself. When you write it down, you can also prioritize your tasks. This will make your life much more manageable. That will help your mental well-being. 

Don’t Try to Please Everyone

If time management is an issue, it might be because you are a people pleaser. You say “yes” to everything, and that makes it impossible to have enough time. Learning to say “no” will help you accomplish two things. First, you will manage your time much better when you don’t overcommit. Second, your mental well-being will get a boost. It’s easy to feel used if you say “yes” to everything. When you learn to set healthy boundaries, you will feel much better about yourself.

Give Yourself a Break

Because school can be so busy, you might think you can’t afford to take breaks. Failing to take breaks can make time management more difficult and make you feel stressed and depressed. Schedule small breaks throughout the day, so you can recharge your batteries. Consider meditating during your short breaks. You can use a meditation app to guide you through the meditation. Meditation will melt your stress away and help you feel refreshed and focused. Then, you’ll be ready to get back to work.

Prepare for Roadblocks

You should plan for roadblocks to occur from time to time. A project might take longer than expected, or you could get ill and have to take some time off. Don’t overcrowd your schedule. If you have a manageable schedule, you can overcome roadblocks without getting behind. 

Take Care of Yourself at College

These tips will help you manage your time and your mental well-being. If you still feel depressed or anxious, make use of the mental health resources at your school. Professionals are there to help you with any problems that arise. Whether you have issues adjusting to your new school or feel overwhelmed in general, they can help.
