Let us understand the Time Management Techniques in detail. These skills can be developed and used by all, including school students, college students, business men, office goers, etc.
1. Be Mindful:
Being mindful helps you to give 100% in what you do. Because of which you do not have to re-do things in most cases.
Thus helping you to be efficient in utilizing time.
Further, due to this habit you will be less exhausted and would still have energy to go through the rest of the day’s schedule.
To know more on being mindful, you can read my blog: Mindfulness.
2. Take Break every one hour:
This is very important, yet a very neglected thing.
That is, you will only realize its true potential when you start this practice.
So here is how it works,
Set an alarm for every hour when the hour and minutes is the same. For instance, 01:01pm, 02:02pm, 03:03pm, likewise.
And when the alarm rings, take a break of 1 minute, wherein you just need to close your eyes and contemplate what all you did in the last 1 hour.
Also, check what all things you could have done better.
Further, make a promise that you will try and improve it in the next 1 hour, then open your eyes and set the alarm for the next hour.

But gradually we lose the interest and flow away with distractions due to which we end up living like before.
So it is very important to stick to your schedule.
And this can be done by reminding yourself frequently on why you started these new habits of scheduling things in the first place.
Further, every hour alarm that we discussed in point no 2 will play a major role to assist with this.

5. Ignore the Distractions:
It is very easy to get distracted today, due to such a powerful tool that we possess in our hand called the mobile.
I would recommend you to turn off the mobile or activate DND(do not disturb) so that no notifications will break your focus.
Firstly, always remember that everything is in your control and no one else is gonna help you do your work.
So it is your responsibility to take some preventive measures to avoid distractions.
6. Start your day with peace:
To utilize time management, it is very important that we have a healthy mind and body.
Because, if you need to focus on your tasks, you should have a supportive body and mind.
Without which you won’t be able to give your 100%.
And the best way to attain that health is by starting your day with peace.
Further, mindfulness is the way through which you can attain this.
I have a complete guide on Mindfulness, which you can read for free.
7. Avoid Multitasking
Multitasking is something that has been commercially marketed to be the best thing.
But this make things clustered in our brain.
You can never do 2 things at a time by giving your 100%.
So it it better to do 1 thing at a time by giving your complete and then hustling to the next task.
