First things first, you can’t manage your time if you feel like cr**. So make sure to get in regular exercise and above all, good nutrition. Cut back on the fried foods, eat more lean protein and fibre and invest in vitamins or nootropics that work for you.

Now -on to time management. If you’d like to prioritize your time management better, start using a calendar! Many people like to write on a physical calendar. Some people prefer the calendar on their computer or telephone. Paper or electronic, a calendar is the smart way to manage your time more effectively and keep everything in order.
