Making a Schedule

Specific Tips for Scheduling

Key Takeaways

  • Keeping to a schedule is not a matter of "will power," but of the development of a habit of referring to the schedule and following its outline, and this habit development may take weeks of practice.
  • Exceptions will occur, but afterwards return to the schedule's pattern.
  • Keep open some day or evening time for daily fitness whether that be physical or mental. Remember, research indicates that regular exercise or mindfulness will not only give you a general sense of well-being, but can reduce tension and help you accomplish a tough class, study, and work schedule.
  • Label some empty blocks of time as OPEN for academic or personal needs.
  • Schedule some time during Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for you to play, relax, or do whatever you want to do.
