To start, time management is the means of dedicating your time to different tasks productively and efficiently. This often involves planning out daily jobs, being sure to at least make a mental note of how long each task will take, and practicing control of your time as you finish each one and move on to the next. Time management skills are important in everyday aspects of life from personal to professional.
Why is time management so important? In short, being efficient with your time overall allows you to be more productive. Another key point mentioned is that it can also improve your mental health because you'll be less stressed. Sounds like a win-win to me!

Create a daily prioritized task list
Do the most critical task in the morning
Track your time
Schedule your breaks
Keep a list of backup tasks
