  1. I think this idea is something that would work well because most of my issue that come up during the day are because I am rushed. If I were to try to slow my day down and give myself more time my day would most likely end up being more productive. This idea is something I will try because I think that it could decrease my stress level and allow myself time to enjoy my day more.

  2. I never thought to do this, but it’s a great idea. I always feel myself rushing through things because i don’t give myself enough time to get things done. I actually started using a planner this year to try and see everything I need to get done in one place because it brings down the stress of a constant checklist in my head. This video is very useful for managing time in a better way and I plan on using this strategy.

  3. Skye brought up some interesting ideas and made me think about how I handle certain situations. Her half speed day idea would help me cope with stress and anxiety and I am going to try it out. Often I find myself overwhelmed with no way to deal with my problems and Skye’s video made me feel relief because now I have a method of dealing with all of my assignments. This strategy of having a half speed day is beneficial and others should consider using this tactic.

  4. I already have experience with this technique and it correlates with just simply planning your day. When I have done this in the past I realized that though I had incorporated in allotted time for my daily tasks, small conflicts would arise and I had cushion time to deal with unexpected issues. I found that I was more prepared and aware of what I had to do for the day, therefore was less stressed.

  5. I really liked the idea she presented in this video, it just seemed unrealistic. I am not sure where someone would get all this extra time to do their normal things. I suppose you can get up earlier but then you are just missing sleep you need. However, I do think it is important to be calm and relaxed, especially on days of high anxiety.

  6. I thought the half speed day idea was very interesting and could definitely work. With my experience, if i wake up a half hour early in the morning, I feel refreshed because I don’t have to rush around as much. I’ve never thought to keep a log before I go to bed about what I have to do and what is bothering me. I know sometimes I will wake up and be automatically stressed out, so I think the log could definitely help that situation. I am willing to give the half speed day a try, because I am optimistic that it will help relieve stress and anxiety.

  7. I loved the ideas Skye offered in this video. I look forward to enacting them, as I feel allowing myself more time in the mornings and before classes would most definitely ease some of the stress I feel from the work load. College, I’m learning, is far more time-consuming than high school, but if I can manage my time more efficiently, I feel I’d be able to adjust with ease and be a more productive person.

  8. I think that slowing down is an interesting approach when it comes to getting things done, mostly because I am a procrastinator. I would love to try this for a day and give myself an abundance amount of time so not to cause myself any additional stress. I like to write down everything I need to get done for the day, then include something I want to do at the end of the list, like watching my favorite show, to give me motivation. By allowing myself to enjoy the day more instead of rushing through it I think I would help tremendously with clearing my head so I can get done everything I need to do in a timely manner.

  9. I like the idea of taking a time and a half to do things that you normally do. I also like the idea of having a physical reminder to let you know that you are taking things slower than you normally do such as painting your nail a different color. One thing that she points out that I already do on a normally bases is write down what you have to do throughout the days to come. It is also smart to utilize the time you put aside for everything like she said because it gives you time to actually feel like you accomplished something that you had to do.

  10. I have to agree that taking more time out of one’s day to accomplish whatever needs to be done can relieve a good deal of stress. This added time makes it much easier to not rush through the day, and for me I have noticed that I can relax more and enjoy my day. The world around us is always moving so quickly and it is nice to just take a step back and slow everything down from time to time.

  11. I love the idea she presented, but I don’t think it could work with me. I plan everything in my day to do, down to the last minute. If I just gave everything extra time, I feel like I would procrastinate even more than usual and would have wasted time doing unnecessary things such as add 30 minutes to my getting ready routine. However, that doesn’t mean it could work with other people and relieve some of their stress.

  12. I like the ideas Skye presented in the video though I feel as though it is unreal to think of people to be able to double the amount of time they spend on activities during the day. Maybe during it for certain times in the day, not for everything. I would think that sleep would end up being a huge loss, and with that comes to no energy for the long day planned out ahead. The idea of not stressing and anxiety are great planning out and giving extra time to do finish something is extremely helpful.

  13. I really like the idea Skye presented of making a list of the things you need to get done the next day before you go to bed. I feel this could help me not stress about the next day as I am trying to sleep, and better help me plan out my day. I also like the idea of wearing a physical reminder. I think this could be used for many things, not just the half speed day!

  14. I think the half speed day is a great plan, in theory. Ideally, I would love to be able to give myself the time i would normally have and more, but that’s usually just not in the cards for me. I myself do struggle with severe bouts of anxiety, but my honest opinion is that a half speed day would only make this worse. I’m pretty sure I’d end up get way less work done, and I’d feel like I was wasting time. I think this is a good thought, but is likely not a realistic solution for most people struggling with anxiety.

  15. I think this idea is pretty cool, but definitely not realistic. For me, if I try to slow things down I will become distracted and in turn be less productive. Personally, the more I have to do and the less time I have to do it, causes me to be a lot more productive.

  16. I really like the idea of a “half speed day” because, like she stated, anxiety is horrible when trying to get things done. This video made me want to attempt scheduling my days again. I never stuck with scheduling before because I always found that I was rushed to do something that I didn’t imagine would take me such a long amount of time. With the advice from this video, I’ve realized that I need to let myself slow down when going through my day, which is something I’ve always struggled with.

  17. I believe that the idea of taking a half speed day is a good one. I agree that when you slow down physically you can also start to slow down mentally which can cause a reduction of stress. The only problem that I have with this video is that although it sounds great to be able to take the time and a half to do everything a lot of the times that is not an option because schedules inevitably become crammed.

  18. I actually do not have a problem with anxiety and stressing out over things, however I did learn a lot from this video that will help me. I found it helpful to write everything down that I am doing for the week, so I don’t forget about anything. Plus, it also feels good if you have a checklist of things that you need to do rather than just having it all run through your head. Instead of cramming everything into a small window of time, I found it easier to spread out my time and all the stuff I needed to get done. I found this technique more efficient for me and I actually had more free time in the end when I used this method.

  19. I think that this idea of taking everything slower is awesome. I know that personally, this would really help me to relax after being stressed out. Especially just writing down what I have to do would help. This way, I would be able to be more relaxed and focus on each task one at a time and focus on completing it one at a time. I think that this could be beneficial to people with anxiety because we college kids get stressed sometimes.

  20. This video was very interesting, I have never thought of slowing down my whole routine, and just giving myself more time to do everything, I think mainly because I don’t think I would have enough time to do everything. The only time I could think of me doing this already is when I work out, because I take very long breaks in between whatever im doing, to let myself rest and make sure I am doing the workout correctly, So in the end I have accomplished much more then if I just rushed through the whole thing. I think this could help me greatly if applied to my everyday life.

  21. Dealing with anxiety is really hard for me to do, so this video gave me another option on how to deal with it: something called “half speed day”. By giving myself extra time throughout the day helps me relax and enjoy the little things in life more. I learned that by utilizing all of the time I am giving myself will help me stay calm instead of rushing through my work and then just sitting and waiting until I have to do something else. I like how Skye talked about making lists because for me, lists are extremely helpful and makes me stay more organized.

  22. I thought this was such a neat idea. I have never heard of this before, but it sounded like something that would be nice to throw into a stressful week. I don’t have anxiety problems but I have noticed before that giving myself extra time makes the day more relaxing and i usually have better days when I’m not flustered or in a rush. I think doing this every so often would be great for anyone and I’m definitely going to try it.

  23. This video was really interesting to me because I realized I already do these things. Not on purpose, but that is just how I am. It is nice to know that what I am doing is a good habit and the exact benefits of giving yourself some extra time in your day. One thing I learned from the video was journaling your thoughts before going to bed. This seems very helpful because I am usually very restless at night with so much running through my head. This should help slow me down and make going to sleep a little easier as well.

  24. This is something that I am going to try, especially on days when I have 8 am’s, because I am always rushing to get to class on time and I constantly feel pressed by time. I always find that on my days that don’t start until 11 go a lot more smoothly, because I wake up around 9 which gives me a lot of time to get ready for the day. I am also going to use the tip of writing everything I need to do the next day the night before, instead of the day of. I liked her point of taking the whole time for lunch to actually eat lunch and enjoy it instead of rushing.

  25. I really like the idea of a “half speed day” because it gives me more time to do things. I didn’t realize I already do this until now, but I always overestimate the time it would take me to do something and give myself a little more time so that I don’t feel stressed or start to panic. This really helps me and I never have to worry about being late to something and really stressing out. It really does make a huge difference in my days and I never have to cram things.

  26. Ample time during the day allows for a person to slow down mentally. A crowed and rushed mind can lead to stress and confusion. I would struggle to achieve the idea of a half speed day because I particularly have an issue with time management. I believe a half speed day would allow for less errors and forgetting certain things. Every little thing counts especially when it comes to time.

  27. I am definitely that person who is guilty of not giving myself enough time to get things done and prepare for my day and what I have ahead of me. I know that this certainly contributes to my daily stress and that simply allotting more time for myself could combat it. The half speed day is something that I would definitely be interested in trying considering time management is something that I really struggle with. I would be interested to see if it is something that would make my day less stressful, or whether it is something that would just make me feel like the day is longer and that I am moving in slow motion.

  28. I’ve never thought about ‘intentionally’ doing a half speed day, but after watching this video I think it would be really beneficial especially before a stressful week or day. Anxiety is a real problem for me and other college students and I think this idea would be really great and a useful tool!
