Serving in a structured study hall for students who need tutoring or help getting organized, instructional aid Rachel Allen helps students become more organized with their time.

“The main reason students struggle with time management is because of their cellphones,” Allen said.

Although students are busy with activities such as sports, jobs and extracurriculars after school, cell phones are just as time-consuming. According to Common Sense Media, 78 percent of teens check their phones hourly and the average user spends around four hours a day on their phone.

“I encourage my students to do homework as soon as they get home to avoid stress,” Allen said.

Allen found that students who avoid doing their homework by going on their phone only makes stress worse.

“My study hall helps a lot for me to get work done,” sophomore Megan Rhoads said. “I try my best to focus and be productive to avoid stress.”

Rhoads makes sure that despite her busy dance schedule and school work, that she has her phone notifications off while doing homework.

Turning off phone notifications is a simple way to focus better and manage time. Other ways to avoid spending time on the phone include someone setting a timer or reminder after a certain amount of time to remind themselves to take a break.

Removing distracting apps from the home screen works against the temptation to click, and blocking distracting sites are all ways for to focus on managing time better.
