Earlier this year, I set a schedule for my personal life. It turns out that from this month, it gets disrupted and eventually, I fail to follow it. I think there's a part of me that was wrong in approaching my schedule planning. At first, I was planning to get more work done than getting my life together.
So, I decided to put more hours for work and less time for my life. It was not a balanced situation, especially after I read several sources that mention, we need to sleep 8 hours a day. For me personally, that's ridiculous amount to waste just to sleep. However, having to know the impact of sleep deprived, I'd rather sleep than die early.
One of sources I found, mention that one should divide their time as follows :
Sleep : 8 hours
Work : 9 hourse
Exercise : 2 hours
Life : 5 hours
Since I don't do a rigorous training, 2 hours gym/ exercise is just too much. So, I can add an hour to account into my commuting time. That's fairly reasonable right?
In my previous schedule, I set about 11 hours working time,4 hours dealing with life and only 6 hours of sleep, the rest I meditate, exercise and journaling.
As of now, I am trying to tweak my schedule into more reasonable plan. I need to change it in order to have healthier lifestyle. Thus, it will also help me perform better in my work.
Well, I learned from my lesson this month. I hope this week, I can sleep better and stop obsessing about business ideas or upcoming projects.
