    How do you spend your time? 168 hours Worksheet

    You will learn how you use your time each week. Everyone has the same

    amount of time and seeing how you choose to use your time will give you the power to change your behaviors, and make better use of your time.

    Step 1 List the amount of time per week for each activity

    (Arrive at a daily average and multiply by 7; account for weekend differences)

    Activity Multiply

    by # of

    days you do


    Total Hours

    a. Class time (# of hours in class each week) b. Job/Work c. Studying d. Commuting/transportation time e. Athletics (varsity sports and practice) f. Extracurricular Activities (clubs, SGA, church, etc.)

    g. Family Responsibilities (cleaning, cooking, shopping) h. Sleeping i. Eating 2 14 j. Personal Hygiene (bathing, hair, make-up, etc.) 1 7


    Step 2:

    Add together a-j for a Subtotal Now subtract your subtotal from 168 for a TOTAL

    Total Weekly hours 168 Subtotal a-j -_____

    Total = ______

    If the number in your TOTAL line is negative, you have committed more time

    than there is in a week. YOU ARE IN TROUBLE.

    If you have time leftover, ask yourself; what choices are there for my time?

    Do I have time for more sleep? Volunteering? Friends?
