Time Management For Athletes

As we all know there are 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week and so on. while the average person gets 8 hours of sleep each night, this leaves an average of 16 hours of time you spend awake. 16 hours seems like a lot until you break down everything you have to do throughout the day including, eating, class, shower, socialize and of course if you are an athlete you have lift and practice. Now with everything I just mentioned takes up mot of the daylight, then think about taking away another 4 hours daily for athletic requirements while still having to finish the same amount of work as everyone else.

It is very easy to feel discouraged after a long practice and hours of homework waiting for you in your dorm. But there are ways to get through it and finish everything you need to do. Here are some time management tips to limit your late night homework sessions.

Cut out naps in between classes. If there is anyone who enjoys a mid day nap its me, but it is essential to get as much work done in between classes as possible. Next if to take advantage of bus rides. Away games are a great time to stay on top of your work. It is good to do this because it is exhausting traveling and playing, the last thing any athlete wants to do is an assignment after a game. And lastly, use your Sundays wisely. Sunday is the only day of the week where you have no obligations. It is a full day where you can get ahead  of work so you don’t fall behind during the week.
