Relation between time management and stress management.
Time management and stress management are closely related. Good time
management helps to manage stress and lower it. Both can be measured
by answering a simple questionnaire. It can be anonymous to give delegates
the chance to answer the questions without any fear of being victimized
if they use their name. I have produced a simple questionnaire where I
focused on key questions, which were hidden within the less important.
