Routines Help When You Are an Adult Student

Being an adult student can be tough when you have family commitments and maybe even work commitments.  There are so many things to juggle and so many things to keep track of.

While having a good time management system can be helpful, one of the other things that can help is having routines.  Routines help you know where you have to be and when and they can also help your friends and family know what to expect.

What kind of routines can you create?

  • You could make the kids lunches and prepare for the next day at the same  time every night.
  • You could have specific times set aside for family time.
  • You could have specific times set aside for school work.
  • You could have specific times set aside for doing homework with the kids.
  • You could create "independent time" for you children and they will come to learn that at those times they are expected to entertain themselves or work on their own projects (like arts and crafts).
  • You could have specific times set aside for television viewing or video games for the kids (or yourself)!

Routines take a bit of time to develop but once they are formed  you will find it easier to get more done!
