As a college student, I see myself facing this issue almost all the time. Time management. It is extremely difficult knowing how to productively pass the time and get things done. When all these distractions come in the way of study time or homework, it is that much harder for someone to put all of their focus on what it is they should be doing. Because of poor time management, college students often see themselves performing poorly in the classroom. Knowing how to manage time efficiently, means knowing how to prioritize and how to have self-control. Along with school, comes the part-time job, the social activities, and the personal relationships that college students must make time for. All of which can become distractions when trying to focus on just one task. What is most difficult for me as a college student, is balancing time between my family and homework. What matters to me the most is my family and because of that, I find myself setting homework aside so that I can spend as much time with them as possible. Later on, I am crammed with all this homework with only a couple of hours to get it all done. I get overwhelmed, frustrated, and I begin to stress thinking that I am not going to have enough time to get everything done. Just like my situation, many college students put homework and study-time aside for whatever reason and end up feeling pressured which eventually leads to stress. With stress comes lack of sleep, headaches, and can cause many other physical effects. Because we are so caught up on what we are doing at the time, we don’t take our health into consideration. Unless they are already ill, college students typically have no reason to care for their health since they are already too busy with other things.
