Planning Ahead Is Planning Smart

planning aheadPlanning ahead is something that actually takes a little bit of practice if you’re not used to it.  It sometimes seems really overwhelming to get everything done in your busy day. But if you really think about it, if you get 7-9 hours of sleep, you’ve still got 15 hours in your day!

Planning ahead helps you to be more productive.  There are different strategies that you can use to plan ahead and make a schedule.  One way is by blocking your schedule.  This is like what you see on Google Calendar.  There are visual blocks for each activity with different colors to help you keep things organized. When you are making a schedule, don’t forget to block out time for everything.  Even eating.  Sometimes when we get busy, we forget to eat.  By planning ahead, you can be sure to get three balanced meals a day that will help your mind and body stay healthy.

There are many websites that can help you plan and schedule your day. Check out this article from Emily Clark on the ASDA blog:  Planning ahead is planning smart | Mouthing Off | Blog of the American Student Dental Association.
