Write down your class times, writing assignment timeliness, study times and meeting times in your daily planner. Spread your writing assignment and study times evenly throughout your week, rather than trying to do it all in one, two or three days. If you have other obligations, such as work hours, family responsibilities and personal appointments, write those down too. Be sure to schedule yourself at least 10-minute breaks for each hour of your study and writing time. Include daily and weekly time for meals, exercise and leisure, too. Allow yourself the hours you need for sufficient sleep. Remember that overbooking yourself, cramming into the night, or neglecting your nutritional, sleep, exercise and social/recreational needs will undermine your education, as well as your health.
