Stress Management: Managing Your Time

Time management is a way to find the time for all the things you want and need to do. It helps you decide which things are urgent and which can wait. Learning how to manage your time, activities, and commitments can be hard. But doing so can make your life easier, less stressful, and more meaningful.

  • When you manage your time, you decide which tasks and activities are most important to you. Knowing what's important helps you decide how best to spend your time.
  • There are three parts to time management: prioritize tasks and activities, control procrastination, and manage commitments.
