Now more than ever people have many different things on their plate like work, family, activities, and education.

Managing your time well is critical in order to get things done.

Here are some tips to help. First, focus less on low priority things, they tend to take up way too much time. Also, remember that balance is key.

"We can't work 100 percent of our time," said Valerie Palamountain. "So we allocate time so we have enough time for play, rest, as well as for work."

Next, set your priorities based on what's important to you.

Experts say most of the time, we live by what's important to others. Also, remember there will be times of chaos and calm. It's how you handle the hectic times that's important.

"What we need to do then, when there's a period of chaos is step back and that's when knowing how to relax and rest and enjoy leisure time is so important," said Palamountain.

It also helps to plan out your day. Writing a list of things you may forget during it is good for managing your time.
