IOWA CITY, Iowa -- A University of Iowa workshop will
address one of the main sources of stress for Americans time management.
"Its All About Time: Managing it Before
it Manages You" will be presented from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov.
10 in the Miller Room (Room 259) of the Iowa Memorial Union. The workshop
is part of "Health Iowa Presents
" the continuing workshop series
sponsored by Health Iowa, the educational branch of the UI Student Health
Sarah Hansen, a health educator for Health Iowa, will
present the interactive workshop, designed to alleviate time management problems
for local residents and college students who consistently cite time issues
as causing stress and academic problems.
"Managing time well takes a little effort at
the beginning," Hansen said, "but in the long run it gives you much
more flexibility and time for work or school and for fun and relaxation."
Workshop participants will have the opportunity to
take a self-assessment, learn the keys to effective time management and create
personalized action plans for the rest of the semester.
The workshop is free and open to the public. Individuals
