Time Management Edit
Time management is the foundation to a successful college experience. Most students are trying to balance quite a busy schedule including part-time or full-time jobs while taking enough classes to qualify them as full-time students. To get started on managing your time you should first look at your personal schedule and how you manage your time on a day-to-day basis. Some students waste valuable time by procrastinating school work. Others just simply need to get organized. Having a healthy body and mind is also very important in managing the time in your life. You must take care of yourself and listen to your body. Most young adults do not get near enough rest that their body requires causing them to lack behind in certain areas of their life.
