Do you ever feel you have too much to do with so little time? Do you feel you have way too many tasks and can’t keep up or remember what to do? Don’t worry; you’re not alone.
Did you know? In Ontario, 57.9% students felt overwhelming anxiety over the past 12 months.
That is a shockingly high percentage and we all may have faced it once in a while, especially now – a time where exams and project and papers start piling up.
To help you stay balanced during this exam season, I highly recommend trying out what has saved me. TO DO LISTS!
I can’t stress how much these have helped me. I do one every day and it helps me keep on top of my work and juggle the several extra curriculars I have, work and school.
Here are some tips on how to do to do lists and some apps that can help you stayed organized!
1. Organization – The traditional Paper & Pen
When making one, there are 2 ways you can categorize it by:
a) Either by most important tasks
b) Simple tasks first and then most important (when crossing off the simply easy tasks at the beginning of the day, it motivates you to accomplish more).
2. IPHONE USERS – “Reminders” app
The beauty of this is that you can create several different lists & reminders, and schedule them to have a date and time of when it should be done by. Notifications keep you on top of your task, especially at times when you are overwhelmed with work and forget to check your list.
