    Our company used PMAC for various bespoke training sessions and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Communication was excellent and efficient, and the sessions themselves were incredibly helpful, engaging and enjoyable. The PMAC team were a joy to work with and we look forward to having them back again soon.

    The Neurodiversity in the Workplace session I attended was brilliant. Since my son received his Autism diagnosis, I have attend lots of training, webinars and conferences. This session was by far the most informative. It was delivered with enthusiasm and by someone with lived experience. I would highly recommend this session.

    PMAC wrote two articles on mental health issues for unpaid carers which were published on our website and in our magazine, Carers News. We were delighted with the quality of the both the pieces, particularly how they related to our target audience, and the positive response they received.

    I approached PMAC for some training earlier this year to improve my ability to support our staff members. The training was absolutely brilliant. They phoned me in advance to get an idea of what exactly I needed, and how they could best tailor it to our business/ individuals. This really helped to personalise the experience - I've had so many instances of generic training in the past - it was great that they considered what elements they could specifically touch on in order to make the training bespoke for us. On the day itself, we did virtual training (although in person was also an option). The quality of the video/audio was great. The trainer (Hayley) was absolutely wonderful. She had prepared an extremely thorough and engaging presentation for us. The training lasted for 4 hours but had a couple of breaks in which did help. It was great to have training from someone who has such a well rounded knowledge of the issues we wanted to learn about, and her delivery was excellent - she was open to answering uncomfortable questions - and encouraged us to be open and not shy away from what could have been quite delicate issues. She then followed up the training with the power point, and assured us that we could call for help again if needed. 10/10 experience - would very very highly recommend! Thank you Hayley and Peter for all of your help!

    Hayley is a really engaging presenter and the two ‘Introduction to Neurodivergence’ webinars that she ran for us were excellent. The content was super interesting and informative, and it was a great opportunity to open up conversations in the team about neurodivergence. The feedback from everyone (myself included!) was really positive and I’d definitely recommend PMAC to anybody looking for mental health training.

    What is Time Management?

    These days, juggling numerous responsibilities at once has become the norm. Whether navigating the pressures of work, managing childcare, taking control of our finances or keeping on top of our social lives, we find ourselves donning various hats simultaneously, which is why mastering the art of time management isn’t just a luxury. It’s a necessity.

    Time management is not about cramming as much as possible into a set period but planning and consciously controlling how much time we spend on specific activities. It’s about organising your day to increase productivity, enhance the quality of your work and, most importantly – maintain a healthy work-life balance.

    Why is Time Management So Challenging?

    If you struggle with time management, you aren’t alone. It’s a common challenge for many people. In fact, 26% of a business’s work is done outside of the office due to staff needing more time in the working day to complete it.

    So why is it that time management can be such a challenge?

    Workday stress

    Distractions and Interruptions

    In our increasingly connected world, distractions are ever-present. Social media, emails and even chatty colleagues can veer us off course. These constant interruptions can dramatically hinder our time management efforts.


    Often, we delay tasks that seem overwhelming or unenjoyable. Procrastination can lead to a backlog of tasks, increasing stress and anxiety, leading to further procrastination. It’s a vicious circle that’s very hard to break.

    Poor Planning

    Without a structured plan, it’s easy to lose track of tasks and deadlines. Effective time management requires a clear and realistic plan of action.

    Lack of Prioritisation

    Not all tasks are created equal, but many of us struggle to identify the most important and focus on low-value tasks while the critical tasks build up.


    Striving for perfection can lead to spending excessive time on tasks, leaving little left for others. An all-or-nothing mindset can be a significant stumbling block to efficient time management.

    Understanding these challenges is the first step towards overcoming them. At PMAC, we designed our time management training to help individuals and businesses understand the value of time, learn effective strategies for managing time, and enhance overall efficiency and productivity.

    How Does Poor Time Management Impact Mental Health?

    A cluttered schedule often leads to a cluttered mind, and the impact of that manifests in many different ways, such as stress, anxiety, depression and burnout.

    Staff suffering from stress and overwhelm may feel anxious, struggle with sleep and have low mood, while physical symptoms such as headaches and nausea may also present themselves. You might even find that struggling staff will have poor-quality diets, eat too much or too little, have difficulty socialising or have more sick days than average.

    A way to combat this is by improving your team’s time management skills. Research has found that people with good time management skills have better self-esteem and an overall sense of control. These skills give staff a sense of achievement and progress, fostering self-confidence and reducing feelings of inadequacy. In turn, these positive emotions can reduce susceptibility to a range of mental health conditions.

    It’s important to remember that discussing effective time management is not just about boosting team productivity. It’s also about finding healthy routes to better mental well-being. This is why we ensure that our time management training courses provide the information and skills to help improve your team’s overall mental health alongside their time management skills.

    Our training focuses on providing individuals with the tools to organise, prioritise, and manage their time efficiently, reducing the burden of an overwhelming workload.

    What PMAC's Time Management Training Covers

    PMAC’s time management training course aims to educate and empower every team member, providing a comprehensive understanding of how effective time management contributes to overall mental and physical well-being.

    Our course is not just about increasing productivity; it emphasises how crucial maintaining our mental health is in fostering a work-life balance.

    Time management skills allow people to structure their workday more efficiently, reducing the stress associated with deadlines and last-minute tasks. By knowing how to prioritise tasks and set realistic goals, individuals can avoid feeling overwhelmed and enjoy a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. This, in turn, boosts self-esteem and leads to a more positive work environment.

    These vital skills help you embed more downtime into your schedule, making you less likely to work late or sacrifice personal time. This balance between work and leisure reduces the risk of burnout and helps maintain positive mental health.

    Through our time management training, you will learn how to differentiate between urgent and low-level tasks, a crucial aspect of managing workload and avoiding unnecessary stress. This distinction helps improve decision-making skills, reducing anxiety and promoting mental tranquillity.

    Investing in time management training is investing in the mental well-being of your workforce. By giving your team the means to handle their tasks competently, you’re instilling a positive, proactive approach to work that translates into improved mental health.

    Remember, a happy and healthy team is a productive team. So, let us help you achieve that balance with our expert time management training.

    Time Management Strategies Will You Learn With Our Training

    Effective time management is not just about ticking off tasks from a to-do list; it’s about maximising productivity and improving your quality of life.

    Here are a few strategies we delve into during our time management training:


    Prioritisation is a fundamental aspect of good time management skills. Identifying tasks that need immediate attention and those that can be scheduled for later helps streamline your jobs and focuses your energy on the right things at the right time.

    Setting realistic goals

    Unrealistic goals can lead to unnecessary stress and burnout. So, break down your tasks into manageable chunks and allocate time to work on them systematically.

    Avoid multitasking

    Though it might seem like you’re accomplishing more, research suggests that multitasking can decrease productivity. Instead, focus on one task at a time, complete it to the best of your ability and then move to the next.

    Take regular breaks

    Give your mind a chance to rest and recharge. Brief mental breaks can actually increase overall productivity and creativity.

    Use technology to your benefit.

    Numerous tools and apps are available to help manage time more effectively. These can simplify task management, automate scheduling, and provide reminders for important deadlines.

    Time Management Training for the Neurodiverse

    Time management can be challenging for everyone, but if you’re neurodivergent, you might find it even trickier.

    Neurodivergent individuals often perceive and manage their time differently due to their unique processing styles. This isn’t a disadvantage at all. However, it calls for a tailored approach to time management training.

    Traditional time management strategies might not resonate with neurodivergent individuals, so more bespoke strategies that consider their distinct cognitive processing must be implemented.

    For example, more routine and structured base training focusing on visual-orientated planning tools may be more beneficial for a neurodivergent individual.

    PMAC’s time management training recognises this diversity in thinking and processing, and our bespoke training methods cater to neurodivergent individuals, providing them with the tools to manage their time effectively and increase productivity. Our approach respects individual needs and preferences, making our training more inclusive and effective.

    We wholly encourage businesses to embrace neurodiversity and invest in tailored time management training accessible to all. This tailored approach optimises individual productivity and contributes to a diverse and inclusive work environment. It’s a win-win situation – businesses benefit from varied perspectives and innovative thinking, and employees feel valued and understood.

    Remember, effective time management is not a one-size-fits-all. Bespoke strategies are vital to unlocking potential, regardless of neurodivergence. Our time management training is designed to build these skills, ensuring everyone in your team can excel.

    How Time Management Training Can Benefit You

    Contrary to the belief that time management is an inherent skill, it’s not. It’s actually a talent that requires continuous refinement.

    Getting caught up in a whirlwind of tasks and duties is very easy, making it feel like there is never enough time to get what we need done. This often leads to feelings of overwhelm, stress and fatigue.

    Here’s how developing our time management skills can have a hugely positive impact on our mental well-being:

    Boosted Productivity

    By allocating your time more efficiently, you’re more likely to achieve your goals quicker and easier, meaning you can conquer more of your high-priority tasks in less time. From setting realistic goals to prioritising tasks based on significance, time management principles equip individuals with the tools to manage their activities better.

    Reduced Stress

    The pressures of deadlines and growing to-do lists can seem relentless. By prioritising tasks better, your sense of overwhelming and stress will decrease, allowing you more space to breathe and a clearer head.

    Improved Decision Making

    Time management is more than just scheduling; it’s a series of choices that shape your day. Honing this skill elevates your decision-making skills so you can focus on the tasks that truly matter.

    Better Work-life Balance

    Effective time management can be one of the greatest tools in your arsenal to develop a healthier work-life balance. Allocating your time more effectively to work-related tasks and personal and recreational activities helps ensure you leave work at the office and not bring it home.

    Healthier Lifestyle

    Chronic stress can take a toll on both body and mind. Managing time effectively and reducing stress can be the cornerstone of better overall health and well-being.

    Effective time management is a skill that needs regular practice. And with our time management training, we can help you master these strategies, enabling you to optimise your professional life and personal well-being.

    Remember, it’s not about having more time but making the most of our time.
