Symptoms of Poor Time Management and Stressful Life

Effective time management can definitely do so much to change a stressful life and also boost your level of productivity. To get started on an efficient time management technique, one must find a strategy that he or she can use then adapt for a few days until he or she has become accustomed to it. Eventually, you will find it second nature once you got used to your new schedule.

But the more important step towards making that change is recognizing whether you have poor time management skills that can lead to a stressful life. Here are tell-tale signs that you need to revise your time management methods:

•             When you easily become irritable in the middle of doing your task.

•             When you constantly end up feeling over-fatigued.

•             When you have trouble concentrating on what you need to do.

•             Inability to track your activities and keep in tab.

•             Inability to sleep well at night due to anxiety or unexplained worries.

Improving Time Management and Productivity

Proper management of your time often directly translates to increased productivity. Therefore, this should be one of your priorities if you want to reduce the level of stress you have to deal with on an everyday basis. Try out the strategies below and see if it fits you.

•             Plan your daily activities. When you list down the set of activities you had to do for a given day, rank them according to the most important ones to avoid rushing your work.

•             Never agree to doing other works when you have already scheduled other important activities prior to that.

•             Practice the ability to delegate tasks properly so you would not have to do the major chunk of work.

•             In between your tasks, take time to evaluate whether you are spending your time efficiently. If not, then switch to another more effective plan…and quickly!

•             If possible, avoid any form of distraction.

•             Give yourself a break. This will reduce stress and increase your productivity.
