Time Management + Mental Health

Updated: Dec 13, 2022

Researchers recognize there are virtues to creating a structured work schedule and that it is a

“vital skill-set”. In a recent study, researchers analyzed 158 studies from around the world with

over 50,000 participants related to ‘time management’. They determined that most strategies

include the following aspects: scheduling and planning, setting boundaries and blocking out

distractions, and allowing flexibility in your schedule in case something unexpected comes up.

The results showed benefits in work productivity, empowered those with work autonomy and

showed many benefits in academic environments.


Time management was found to impact well-being more than productivity. “The study results

showed that it had a 72% stronger impact on life satisfaction than job satisfaction…”

The study discusses how time management helps people feel good about their lives and

provides a feeling of self-accomplishment.


While time management is helpful, not every technique works for everyone. The main goal and

idea are individualized. There are things we must do, like work. However, everything else is

negotiable. When we begin creating boundaries and managing our time around OUR core

beliefs, values, and needs, we feel better over-all. That might be saying no to lunch with

someone who you don’t enjoy being around. Committing to and intentionally planning on how

you spend and invest your time leads to greater over-all fulfillment and wellbeing.


We will leave you with this quote by Krista-Lynn Landolfi: “Many people are unconsciously pulled by the desires or demands of others and fill much of their time with things they don’t enjoy. When we get clear on what matters most to us, we can better schedule our time, and when it really matters, we find ways to make time.”
