Student research paper
As an undergraduate student at Boise State University I have experienced a significant amount of stress while trying to manage life in the classroom, at home, and in the workplace. This sparked my interest in trying to determine whether or not there was a relationship between possessing quality time management skills and having a healthy mind. Mental health is a complex idea that is unique to every person, but if a task as simple as utilizing a planner can improve a student or working professional’s state of mind, my goal was to share that. Throughout my research I found that a lack of time management skills and poor mental health have a lot of the same qualities. Similarly, knowing how to get the most out of each day has positive effects on the mind, just like doing the things that make us happy. This project shares how to recognize if we are managing our time the right way, and how to improve if we are not. The relationship between that and a person's mental health is explored and proven to have a significant impact on the other. Simple, yet effective skills like these give us the ability to be productive and positive influences on ourselves and those in our community.
