The irony of time management is if you do not pay attention to it you might actually run out of time, without achieving your fullest potential.
Time will just pass on, making you yearn for more, so how do you make the most of it?
Time Management does not connote to being buried in work all the time, it simply means organizing your schedule in such a way that it keeps you efficient, without making you feel overburdened.
These are a few steps you can adopt in order to jump start your life with effective Time Management:
1. MAKING A SCHEDULE
As cumbersome the process sounds it actually helps in reducing the confusion and last-minute frenzy. Every morning when you get up or when you go to sleep at night, note down the things you want to do and the ones you have to do, also keep a section for the ones you wish to do.
This way you can prepare a draft of the things which need to be done on a particular day, keeping you efficient throughout the day.

2. KEEPING TIME FOR YOURSELF
No matter how busy and cramped you are for a day, always remember to keep time for yourself, take a break!
Over working can cause exhaustion which ultimately will affect the quality of the work you do, and also lead you to feeling overwhelmed. The best form of break could be in the form of picking up a book to read, or even having a laugh while watching a stand-up comedy show.
If you do not want to do anything which requires intellectual attention, you can do something as simple as taking a long hot shower, this will help you relax your mind and body.
3. INCORPORATE EXERCISE
Adding exercise of half an hour to an hour helps in keeping you active throughout the day.
The ideal time for exercise is usually in the morning, since it sets a positive mood for the day and keeps you active, refreshed and efficient.
Experts have always said that incorporating exercise in your schedule helps in the process
of time management. It helps in clearing your mind, plus it is also good for your body!

Lack of enough sleep not only harms the productivity of the mind but also hampers the body in the long run.
So, if your aim is effective time management, the first step should always be taking care of your own health.
