Books on Stress/Time Management in the Resource Center

Are you, your staff, and/or your residents stressed out sometimes–or maybe almost all the time?  The Residential Life Resource Center, in the Ikenberry Library, offers the following tips and resources to help with time management and stress reduction:

“Get your calendar and figure out how to schedule thinking time.  Ideally, you should schedule some time daily, as well as a good block of time once a week.  Remember that to be effective, you must remove yourself from distractions, prevent unwanted interruptions, and be able to focus.  Pick the best place and your most productive time of day for your focused thinking time.  Then put it on your calendar and treat it as you would any important appointment.”–From Thinking For a Change: 11 Ways Highly Successful People Approach Life and Work, by John C. Maxwell, page 94.  Call # 650.2 M45t 2003.

Consider this 7-step method for setting and achieving goals, to make them more manageable and less stressful:

  • 1.  “Decide exactly what you want.”
  • 2.  “Write it down.”
  • 3.  “Set a deadline on your goal.”
  • 4.  “Make a list of everything that you can think of that you are going to have to do to achieve your goal.”
  • 5.  “Organize the list into a plan.”
  • 6.  “Take action on your plan immediately.”
  • 7.  “Resolve to do something every single day that moves you toward your major goal.”

As the pace of the semester picks up and students are getting stressed out about upcoming exams and paper deadlines, here are a couple of the many great academic success tips found in books from the Residential Life Resource Center, located in the Ikenberry Commons Library. Please share these tips, and the recommended books below, with your R.A’s and residents!

-“Manage TIME! Time is the great equalizer. No one has any more hours in their day than you do. How you use your time determines your success or failure. Create a daily schedule that allocates time for your personal morning routine, classes, homework/studying, exercise, meals, social/organizational activities, laundry and sleep. Blocking out time for all of these activities will quickly alert you to how little time you actually have and when you have overcommitted.”–From Coached for Success! The College Years by Valerie Griffin and Rishal Stanciel, Call # 378.1 G87541co c. 2, page 27.

-“Find a place where you can study without interruption–most likely not your room.”–From How to Survive Your Freshman Year by Scott C. Silverman et al, Call # 378.1 H87 2010, page 140.

–> The Residence Hall Libraries in Allen, Busey-Evans, FAR, ISR, LAR, PAR, and the Ikenberry Commons provide residents great, handy locations where they can study effectively!
