Problem with my life is that it is quick quick, and no slow. As soon as I wake I am up, washing machine going, tea brewing, eggs boiling, shower running, hair drying, lunch making, car driving, and then working.
Not that I would change anything as I am enjoying my fulfilling life. It is just a good reminder that the faster things get remember to have some slow times too.
In something I am always reminded from Sunny Mummy, aim for the 8-8-8 rule.
8 hours sleep
8 hours work
8 hours play
At the moment my life is:
7 hours sleep (which is very good)
8 hours paid work, 5 hours home work (lucky I enjoy washing and ironing)
4 hours play (lunch with girls, tv, blogging, walking, wandering around shops as seen in photo)
When I started focusing on what I actually do in a day I noticed two things.
1. I waste so much time on crap which means nothing and doesn't fit into any of the three categories. ie stalking people on facebook KIDDING! but you get what I mean, just meaningless crap.
2. I feel far more organised yet calm if I focus on trying to aim for the 8-8-8 rule.
