Time Management Tips for International Students
Are you studied in abroad? So how’s your life going on? All is fine?
Is it because you are running out of time? Well, don’t worry; this is happening for maximum international students. The reason may vary but the common thing is it happens because of the tension of deadline anxiety and better job opportunity. Just ask yourself- why you studied in abroad??? Maybe for a better job opportunity or may understand international work culture or just to enhance your knowledge. Is it??? Apart from these all options, time management is the primary rule for abroad study.
Some of you will think is so natural or common thing to maintain but sometimes common or simple works became harder to us especially when we are out of state. Just compare it with your home life and hostel life. When you are studying from your home, time management is too easy for you. You always are on time and get a good result in your personal life. Right??? You never forget anything in your home because it is known to you. But in the hostel!!! All will be in mess i.e. your books, dresses, cookeries everything as because it is not very well known place to you.
Similarly, time management is easier while you are studying in your nation but is hard in abroad. You are not so much familiar with abroad and that’s why you always run out of time. Along with this, some students prefer to do part-time jobs during their abroad studies. End of the day, managing time became difficult for them along with their study. So, let us guide you to manage your time during your abroad study.
Plan your bedtime and wake up time:
I think it is harder for most of the students as our mom are not around us to wake up. But whenever we plan for studying in abroad, it proves we are independent. So we, therefore, plan our schedule accordingly. Our parents will not ever around us to remind our daily routine. So, planning for bedtime and wake up time is the primary step for all abroad students to manage their time. I not mean to wake up early or to sleep at midnight but plan your relaxation time that will refresh your soul and mind.
Check your work routines:
You all have your daily work schedule. Then in beginning, plan it properly. I will suggest you plan your work schedule yesterday before you went to sleep because in morning you can miss any of your important appointment in hurry. But if you plan it before, then one of your appointments will be missed. Along with that, you also will be understood which appointment you can able to cover or not. You can inform that concern person accordingly. It will project your professional image to others.
Plan your daily summary:
After checking your work schedule, plan your daily summary. I mean to say segregate your timings in such way that you can cover all your important daily appointments.
Keep time for relaxation:
Please keep some time for your personal life. Don’t work 8-10 hours in a day that gets you into depression. Just keep 30 minutes or 1 hour’s minimum time for your relaxation. Do whatever you love like writing, reading books, painting, listening songs or else. Don’t see it as wastage of time because this relaxation time only brings you the pleasure of your entire day.
Plan time for your study:
Plan time for your study. If it is 2 hour then concentrate on these hours in your study. Don’t think for other topics during your study time. Make it completely separate and concentrate on it because you are in abroad to improve your professional skills. So don’t waste your planned study time. I will prefer to keep 1-2 hours study time in your home or hostel apart from your College or University class schedules.
Give time for your family:
It is not off bit but it is your responsibility towards your family. Your parents send you in abroad for your career development but they always worried about you. So call them once in a day. It is not just your responsibility but it will give both you and your family mental satisfaction.
Hope these mentioned tips will help you with your time management. Just try it once. It will help you a lot not only while studying in abroad but also in your state.
