    You can use enough there. For example:
    • I don't have enough time for that. I have to stay in and practice math.

    Most of the time, however, we would probably say I don't have time to do that instead of I don't have enough time to do that.

    :)

    Just to add a British English note- we spell the verb 'practise' and we say 'maths'.
