Time Management - My Daily Routine
I had to jump on this prompt as fast as I could when I saw it so I don't forget or something else prevents me from writing it. Thanks to Luci who created a prompt about time management from his article which you can read here. This is my entry for it.
I have said before that I am a planner, and I am usually particular with my time on most days, but there are days I just say fvvk it! I won't live a programmed life, because to be honest, it feels like that sometimes. I like to plan everything, and it if ever something comes up spontaneously, unplanned, I have learnt to leave room to adjust with that. We all have plans that spans within certain periods of time, could be years, months, weeks, days and even hours or minutes. These are all time frames.
I'll particularly focus on how I plan days, and although this is somewhat different in different times, depending on whether we are on holiday from school or if school is in session. At the moment, we are on holiday and I will talk about how I manage my time doing different things at different time of the day.
We are all aware 24 hours make up a day, and even though you may find it weird, I have actually literally divided that 24 hours to three different parts for different activity(s) of the day. Let me go on to explain how I have partitioned the time I get daily.
This is the first 8-hour I partitioned out of my daily time, because I am very much aware of how much I like sleeping, and how important it is too. If I don't get enough sleep, I tend to feel somewhat sick and usually find it hard to focus on anything at all.
Had to pause this article to have a nap as I am feeling sleepy. Will be right back.
Now that I have had a good nap, let's continue shall we? You see, out of the 24 hours we have in a day, I have specifically allotted 7-8hours out of it to sleep. How I spend this hours varies from time to time. But the most common now is 7hrs in the night and 1hr nap during the day. Although, my sleep pattern when school is in session is very different from when I am at home. For one, I rarely have the time to nap during day and I tend to sleep and wake up early when in school.
Perhaps you may wonder why I spend so much time sleeping, I will say that if there is something I understand about my body, it is how important sleep is to it. And having any less than 7hrs sleep ALWAYS have its toll on me. I need not talk about the importance of getting adequate sleep, but if you must know, you can check it out using this link.
This is the second part of my partitioned time and what I do with it varies from time to time, also, it can be extended or reduced depending on certain factors such as health, mood, among others. When school is in session, I spend average 8hrs every week day in school receiving lectures and all that. But since I have been at home for months now, I basically spend my productive time doing other things such as interacting here, searching for random things on the internet and learning too, reading books and also writing articles I want to publish here on read.
I always try as much as I can to learn something new every day, even if it is a new word. That way, I go to bed feeling good about how my spend my day at the very least 😅.
This is the last part of my daily routine and it varies from time to time too. Every other thing I have to do that I have not mentioned before has to be done within this time period, and a lot of random and non-random activities fall under this category. From bathing, cooking and or eating to watching or playing a football game, chatting on social media or hanging out with friends, family or acquaintances.
In conclusion, this is how I auto-plan my day, and even though it doesn't always go exactly like that, it is usually close to it.
