How hard is it for you all to find time for studying. I know that I have been going to college for about a year now, and have been taking extra classes to hopefully achieve an associates this semester, however, I am finding it harder and harder to find the time to study. I have 2 kids a husband and I work so where else does the time come from. I have been doing it mostly after the kids go to sleep, however, i feel it wearing down my body. Also I have done it with my time in between work, however that wears me down also. I need to find a balance. Is there any tips that someone knows of to maybe help me with this?

i am no longer studying.... but in your case it is really hard to find time to study for you have children to take care of. i am a singer and i have four children and it is hard to find time to study new songs. it is not just hard to find time but also it is hard to concentrate. it is true what my mom told me that studying is really mainly for singles only it is really hard to study if you have a family already. it is not easy to focus too. i wish goodluck and i hope you pass.

hi friend,Its really hard for you to allot time for studying in between your daily routine.But you can do that if you follow some strategies ie, plan and act, split up ur work according to your leisure time so that u can do your work easily.But take care that you spend more time with your family,its more important than any thing.

That is a real hard situation. but i can tell you something on time management which can help you around. everyone of us need this. but the need was not there an so we push on without it. study every day what you do (mark down by hours or with from and to times). this may include cooking, watching tv, playing with children, chatting ...... do this for a week. you can find pockets of time (10 or 15 or 20 mins) being lost at several times a day. Now organize yourself in the next week. plan the jobs that you need to do for the day (in the second week). allot time for each job and move the pockets of waste times to right or left. this creates larger pockets of time, now in orders of 1 hour. Now you will be able to use them to whatever needs you have (may be studying). remember this is easily said than done. but i have practised it the hard way and have got good dividends. happy mylotting.
