If you're always trying to beat the clock, you may feel overwhelmed and burnt out. Many people struggle to keep up with their lives. Between work, school and family, it’s hard to squeeze in everything they need to do. Does this sound familiar?
You might think there’s no way to improve your hectic schedule, but there are simple strategies to free up your time.
1. Realize It's a Choice
Some people might laugh at this notion, but the truth is, being busy is sometimes a choice we make. This is because some people knowingly take on too much. For example, if you have a full class and work schedule, you probably don't have a lot of time for extracurricular activities. Yet, you might sign up for several activities during the week -- which take more of your time and leave you worn out.
Take a close look at your schedule and seriously consider whether you can drop some of your activities.
