GNS 1204 Assignment 1

Report on Stress and Time Management
1. Introduction
One of the most frequent concerns and complaints of people today is that they do not
have enough time to do what they or their bosses want them to do. As a result, they
started to stress up. In fact, time management and stress management are closely related.
People often experience stress because of a lack of time management skills and feelings
of being overwhelmed by all they have to do. However, they can lessen their stress by
using smart time management techniques to help them get their work and other
responsibilities completed in a more timely fashion. Thus, a research has been conducted
on the college students of GNS 1203 to study about how they manage their time and
stress while carrying out their daily routine.
2. Background
The purpose of this report is to analyze on the relationship between time management and
stress management. Two sets of questionnaires which focus on time management and
stress management will be carried out towards the students. In the questionnaire, the
students’ daily routine and also how they manage their time in order to cope with their
daily routine will be asked. In addition, the other set of questionnaire helps to understand
the biggest stress that faced by those students and how they cope with their biggest and
unnecessary stress. On the rate 1 to 10, the students will have to rate their stress level
based on their current situation.
1. What are you going to do everyday?
2. Do you have a fixed daily routine?
3. How do you manage your time?
4. What is your main cause of stress?
5. How do you cope with your stress?
6. On the rate of 1-10, how do you rate
your stress level?


3. Discussion
Based on research, 60% of the students interviewed have a fixed daily routine which
means they have attended class, eat and sleep. However, 40% of their daily routine
includes working as a part timer. By having the same daily routine (attend class, eat,
sleep), those students who work have a slightly higher stress level compared to those
students who do not have to work. Nevertheless, 80% of the students who have planned
their daily or monthly schedule have a much lower stress level compared to those who do
not plan. The other 20% of the students have the highest stress level which is 8 out of 10
due to unplanned daily schedule. They do not have a fixed and systematic schedule for
daily routine to refer to so they do not know how to prioritize the urgent things and the
unnecessary things.

As for those who do not work. Based on research. This is because those students are experiencing the stress beyond their ages.Besides. 20% of them are unable to manage their time well due to unplanned daily schedule. 60% of the students claimed that their main cause of stress is due to external factors which include their work. time management and stress management are closely related. this report has shown that although those students are clear of their daily routine.

All in all. 4. i would recommend that students can consult lecturers or parents to have a more organized and systematic master schedule of their daily routine. research has proven that 60% of the students are no longer facing the stress as a student but also as an employee or part timer. Research has also been found that 40% of the students prefer to share their problems and stress with their friends while 60% of them choose to use other methods which they feel comfortable and satisfy to cope with their stress.
