Students have to go through a lot of things as they are still in the learning phase of life. With effective time management, classes, homework, sports, and hobbies, students have to give time to all these activities and excel there.
Effective time management leads to a better approach to any problem in life. Poor time management leads to poor results in these activities and thus causes stress.
I was terrible in time management and planning. I found it initially hard to plan and execute. But over time I found some of the very helpful tools. You can use your smartphone to manage yourself more effectively.
“The most efficient way to live reasonably is every morning to make a plan of one’s day and every night to examine the results obtained.” - Alexis Carrel

I have counters for the number of the session I studied (a 30 minutes block of time is a session for me), number of books read monthly, number of times I watched social media every day, etc.
I increase the counter by one each time I do one of these activities. I analyze myself at the end of each day and plan for the next day accordingly.
