Dr. Bidra discusses the several ways to practice time management to reduce stress in the article “9 Simple Steps That Can Help You Manage Time, Your Work-Life Balance And Stress”. To begin, Bidra suggests starting the day by making an outline of things that need to get done. After making this list, one should tackle the toughest tasks first. While completing the tasks, Bidra reminds us to stick to our assigned breaks. Minimizing distractions is also key during task completion.
- To manage your time effectively, find a different focus that suits different tasks
- Lists and notes are a simple but powerful method of staying on task and on track to successfully getting things done.
- Small and easily accomplished goals can give an encouraging sense of progress, while doing tough tasks first gets them out of the way.
“Time management is all about developing a focus for different tasks, for different sets of time intervals.”
