1. Brain-based Time Management
find out how your brain works
We often feel that we have too much to do and not enough time to do it in. Imagine finishing your workday with confidence that you remembered and handled everything you needed to. With brain-based time management, that’s possible!
Get concrete tools and strategies to stay on track and on time, plan your day/week, and prioritize your workload. And most importantly, you’ll find out what your brain needs to get you through the day with ease, enjoyment, and energy.

Mary Ellen Baker provided realistic, useful strategies combined with education in executive function to empower those in the class to improve our efficiency AND calm/mindfulness. I have tried classes like this before, and this is by far the biggest “bang for the buck.”Maude Hines, Assoc. Prof., PSU

This was a great class that reminded me of some organizational tools I should be using but more importantly grounded the advice in psychological & neurological principles that helped them make sense.

I’ve used your worksheets and got so much done before 9 am this morning! I didn’t realize how overwhelming a to do list is without the time circles! Having the circle there reminds me to allocate time segments to each task. I’ve also started using the time cube with my son and I’m realizing how important it is to use it with him so he doesn’t grow up with a warped sense of time. This morning, I set the time for 15 minutes for screen time and he said it felt like 5 minutes. I assured him that it was a full 15 minutes.

The class was very informative. I appreciated having material to look over, and that we worked on together throughout the class. The pace was perfect in terms of feeling comfortable to ask questions as they came up, and felt safe enough to not feel shame/embarrassed by our questions. Mary Ellen was knowledgeable, welcoming, and engaging. I really appreciated the follow-up emails with further documents and information.
