One of the toughest and common struggles teenagers face these days is the constant issue of having too much at hand. With the pursuit of balancing schoolwork with duties at home with fun activities that are always in mind comes the struggle of time management.
To properly manage their schedule, teenagers need to make daily sacrifices. Examining priorities and cutting down on activities can eliminate those that are not so crucial or desirable. A typical high school student spends five to seven hours in school, disregarding after-school activities.

One of the toughest and common struggles teenagers face these days is the constant issue of having too much at hand. With the pursuit of balancing schoolwork with duties at home with fun activities that are always in mind comes the struggle of time management.
To properly manage their schedule, teenagers need to make daily sacrifices. Examining priorities and cutting down on activities can eliminate those that are not so crucial or desirable. A typical high school student spends five to seven hours in school, disregarding after-school activities.
After continuous hours spent learning difficult educational material, many students are not in the mood for working on homework when arriving home immediately from long hours of mental stress. Large amounts of these students, therefore, choose to spend the few hours after school watching TV or for leisure time on a computer or smart phone.
These hours take away from time that could be used for schoolwork, housework, or even sleep. Not getting a recommended eight hours of sleep each night leads to slower brain functions during the day making it harder for students to process information during class in school, requiring them to take part in extra studying at home to understand the content, which then takes away more sleeping time, further deepening the hole these students get entrenched in.
The internal chaos high school students constantly face originates from when they choose to waste their time on pointless electronic use. Although teenagers claim the use of these devices is to relax and refresh their minds for further school work, electronics usage often takes up valuable hours of time each day, and can be rather addicting, leading to an increased amount of wasted hours. Also, the desire for teenagers to relax their minds can be achieved much more easily and effectively with non-electronic activities, such as a walk in the park or even a short afternoon nap. These types of activities may take no more than half an hour and can very well be used to soothe the brain. Some may argue that students should take time off doing schoolwork, take part in frequent leisure activities in order to live freely, and enjoy their short teenage lives. The downfalls of these actions, however, are very unfortunate, as the loss of sleep limits potential brain growth essential for decision-making, awareness, and memory. Also, efforts made by teenagers to make productive use of time can be used as valuable skills for later adult work in society that is becoming increasingly competitive.
For teenagers looking to manage their demanding schedules more efficiently, time wasted on pointless electronic use is certainly a factor to consider. Sacrifices aimed at recreational activities will ensure productivity and the meeting of priorities.
