  • homework should be just a recap of the things u did at school, but me, a dude in middle school quarantined in 2020, u can say im fucked with the amount of shit i need to do

  • Rachel, I LOVE this video. Easily one of the most helpful balancing videos I’ve seen. Found myself engaging and implementing the techniques while still watching the video:)

  • I’m in my second year of uni, doing psychology as well, and I’m also very anxious and get stressed easily. Basically can’t believe what a good match it is that I found your channel! I feel like I barely do anything with my time, yet I get so overwhelmed, going to give this a try xx

  • My 3rd graders school has a no homework policy. It’s been that way in our district since he was in Kindergarten.

    We can request homework sheets and the kids don’t have to do it but will get a prize if they do.

  • I thought this was Great. I know I spend a lot of time in front of the TV. I noted that couple weeks ago. I need to record the hours. I have started making lists! It does help prioritize. Thanks!

  • Are you for real? 10 minutes per grade level? HA! In my school it ain’t like that. I get so much HW each day, it will take at least 2-4 hours to finish and some more then one day. It astonishes me seeing that people get 20-30 minutes of HW. THAT’S EASY. Even for first graders and second graders. I mean I understand they are young and need to explore the world, but like come on. 20-30 minutes just for HW is a good amount.

  • In millcreak in Seattle i laugh at this I have disabilities and i spend almost my day/night on homework, this kinda makes me feel well sad about our education in general in America being shitty with homework causeing stress like suicidal thoughts, ETC to kids in general

  • what i want to know is how you don’t burn out? and how you aren’t super tired from a full day that when you get home, you don’t just wanna chill out for the rest of the night? do you ever become exhausted from such a busy schedule?!

  • For those who don’t like complaining and being sarcastic in comments to build their self-esteem ) I actually have something to recommend there’s a free Android app that really helps to manage our time better as it allows to track it on each and every activity. It’s called Time Planner. The nice thing is, the developer is very outgoing.

  • 12:44 ngl i cried when you said that. I’ve been pressuring myself ever since and I still fail alot. I don’t have time for myself, I can’t do things that I love, and REST. I’ve tried bulletjournaling but tbh it didn’t really worked for me and it just stresses me out more lmao. I thought studying a lot of time will be easier but I actually need to rest (I realized I’m so dumb when I’m overwhelmed HAHAHA). I’ve been doing your method for 6 months already and I really did see the progress I made. I am less anxious and most importantly…I am happy.

    Thank you so much without this maybe ngl I’m already hopeless <3:)))

  • Suppose that you were sitting down at this table. The napkins are in front of you, which napkin would you take? The one on your ‘left’? Or the one on your ‘right’? The one on your left side? Or the one on your right side? Usually you would take the one on your left side. That is ‘correct’ too. But in a larger sense on society, that is wrong. Perhaps I could even substitute ‘society’ with the ‘Universe’. The correct answer is that ‘It is determined by the one who takes his or her own napkin first.’ …Yes? If the first one takes the napkin to their right, then there’s no choice but for others to also take the ‘right’ napkin. The same goes for the left. Everyone else will take the napkin to their left, because they have no other option. This is ‘society’… Who are the ones that determine the price of land first? There must have been someone who determined the value of money, first. The size of the rails on a train track? The magnitude of electricity? Laws and Regulations? Who was the first to determine these things? Did we all do it, because this is a Republic? Or was it Arbitrary? NO! The one who took the napkin first determined all of these things! The rules of this world are determined by that same principle of ‘right or left?’! In a Society like this table, a state of equilibrium, once one makes the first move, everyone must follow! In every era, this World has been operating by this napkin principle. And the one who ‘takes the napkin first’ must be someone who is respected by all. It’s not that anyone can fulfill this role… Those that are despotic or unworthy will be scorned. And those are the ‘losers’. In the case of this table, the ‘eldest’ or the ‘Master of the party’ will take the napkin first… Because everyone ‘respects’ those individuals.

  • Hi. we’ve made an animated video about the Rocks Pebbles and Sand story and thought you might like to see it

  • This is great stuff, it truly is; but, daydreaming, is part of life also, which can spur the ideas that bust stress, and even help with developing better time management. All in its proper proportion.

  • CONGRATULATIONS to everyone here!!! You didn’t wasted your time watching this 4:10 second long video.

  • Getting overwhelmed with my schedule that’s less busy than this, I searched online for solutions and this seems to be the answer! Love the video and the idea:) Hopefully I’ll be able to focus and bring my grades back up before the end of the semester!

  • I know I have to keep a schedule that I should follow, the problem is that i prepare that schedule thinking i could do more than i actually can in a specific period of time

  • I use daylog time tracker app for this technique easy to track all my day and analyze history! Hope it will help you too –

  • I made a time management app (scheduling time tasks) on Android market. It’s free.

  • School life is full of ups and downs. It’s at this time that you try to figure out who you are and envision what the future holds. You work hard in class, get a side hustle for some good pocket change and have your social life crumble while at it. How do you balance school, work/business and social life?

    Get to know more here…

  • I liked this tips I learned from Tim Ferriss that suggested to ask yourself: “What are the most important 3 tasks I need to do today?” to write them on a post it note and to highlight the most important one of them.

    You can keep this post-it note in front of you or in your pocket..
    It really helps a lot..

  • HOW TRUE UK children suffer from this too and lack of creativity in the very structured “Maths/English ” based curriculum at school. from age of 4 onwards!!. kids DO need time to be kids PLAY and fun time is so important for growth in all directions.

  • ALRIGHT THSTS WAY TO LITTLE 10 minutes of homework EACH GRADE LEVEL. in 5th grade I sometimes would work from 5pm9pm THATS 4 Hours ☹️☹️��

  • Are you thinking of maximising your time. That is exactly what you need to dothe discipline to plan your time and go by it.
    I hope you find this video useful.

  • I study in the university, I should revising and in the same time I have alot of thing to do and it’s important for me
    I have to follow this method in the in this month and if it work I will follow it all the time

  • I have school from 8-3 then soccer from 3:30 to 5:30 then work from like 6is to 11pm or 12am. I have like no time to study and do homework

  • this video is amazing! i watch it every week while i plan. i love the way you explain everything. i tried google calendar but i’m now using a passion planner and it works wonders.

  • I agree with this for the most part… I disagree with that part that breaks are them wasters… breaks are important for not overworking yourself. It’s healthy to take breaks:)

  • i love this SO MUCH! i need this but i don’t really make my schedule too similar to yours, but this sure did made me realize that time management is so important. thank u sooo sooo much and God bless u ��❤

  • I have swimming every day of the week and I felt very overwhelmed with all of my schoolwork so I watched your video to try and help my problem…thank you so much I really needed it. I feel a lot better now ❤️

  • I wonder if you could give us some tips on how you handle your uni assignments, there will be weeks when you need to do a lot or have exams coming up, how do you deal with that? along with having a job?

  • Do you ever not have enough time to study or do homework? I have 12 hours of school and 23 at work and still can’t get enough time to do all my hw and studying without completely burning out. But I guess the way to keep you from burning out is by just putting your relax time into your schedule so you know you have something to look forward to? and so you don’t have to feel like you’re going to burn out if you don’t stop?

  • Super agree with not filling up the calendar completely!!! I’ve made the mistake and when I realized things weren’t going according to my calendar, I kind of freaked out and just ditched the whole thing. ��

  • I get how you discipline yourself and that’s actually great for you, it’s really inspiring. But how do you study and get your marks up high with such a busy schedule?? When do you get the time to study with your own schedule? Coz sometimes the classes can be so long and you don’t even know how to study and keep your marks up high

  • Today I was inspired by you and decided to actual create a plan like this for this week/semester. I have to say that it looks very overwhelming, but at least I know that I have enough hours a day to do what I need and that is refreshing. This is a very good idea. I hope it works for me:)

  • This was really helpful even though Im not in college or university yet and I also like where you said God is your number one priority,I love that,I feel like God is first too above everything else the Lord comes first,and I saw like a oral,a Holy glow,and I can tell that you are a Christian,I love being inspired by other Christians too,and that was so beautiful what you said about God,How He was your number one priority,God bless you,God bless your soul.I love you in Christ.

  • Schools waste too much time. A third grader who spends 30+ hours a week in school should not need homework, everything they need to know should’ve been taught in that ample amount of time.

  • You helped me so so much with this video! Thank you!! I started Uni in October and I am so overwhelmed and your videos honestly help me so much. I feel a lot calmer after watching them and I feel less pressure to get everything done the first try. Again THANK YOU!

  • i replaced time watching tv with listening to audio books in my room but then my family complained ” we never see you anymore ” lol

  • Thank for the video, need to complete my homework on time management and you made it plain and simple to my understanding thanks for that.

  • I on a regular basis usually have 2 to 4 hours of homework (2 hours I am really lucky) And 20 minutes of homework for them I am like…..O_o

  • You are such an amazing person! You have helped me, as a young guy living in central Kentucky, get through so much! Great video as usual!��

  • im a person that dont use the time productively not juz for hours ive been wasting my whole life on youtube and social medias…i cant help it…im so addicted

  • I also find it really helpful to plan out when I eat and how long I travel too places.. That way I can see more realistically how much time I actually got! Great video!

  • I notice a lot of video’s on getting children to do their homework because parents fail at that task. I notice a lot of children in real life too refusing to do homework. I am fifty years old and I do not recollect anything like this from my own youth. So what changed? I know school does not discipline students for not doing homework. I know school does not do its job in teaching kids the whole curriculum during school hours so kids need to make up for that in free time. I know kids get homework now before we ever did, which is related to not learning what they need to know during the schoolday. I see the information they get and the questions are quite dumb. The level of education has really dropped. So who is to blame? Not the parents or the kids, but the school.

  • This panel of people seems oddly immature. I wonder if this is really who they are? They also seem uncomfortable and lacking in confidence, especially at the end when three of them clap their hands to make a final point. One is following and mimicking the other. It’s so odd and vacant.

  • Dr S, your non reactivity to their uncomfortable egoic reaction was in itself a profound lesson for me to be able to hold onto my own beliefs as a parent who is awakening to the true self and try to fan that flame in my teen son. In moments when people project their lack and fear onto me and want to unconsciously manage down or manipulate my views or belief about the truth to sooth their own insecurities!!
    Than you!
