Why does life get so hectic that it always seems like you never have time for the things you enjoy?
My job keeps me busy, and my commute takes an extra hour and a half out of my day. I come home, cook dinner, clean up, then collapse on the couch, all my energy drained.
I have been saving my time on the weekends to do the things I love and the thing I want to try. But I never seem to get as much done as I'd like. Time just slips away.
Not much I can do, but I'm working towards finding more time and more energy.
One option is to work 10 hours days and then have 3 day weekends every weekend, but like my friend Fauna said, I will be spending the weekend catching up on all the stuff I should have done during the week. And I don't want to do that.
Second option is to go back to 8 hour days, never have any 3 day weekends, burn myself out, but have more time to do the things I like to do.
Third is to keep trucking on, working 9 hour days but having every other Friday off, which gives me a day to myself to paint, take pictures, explore, cook, eat, do crafts.
How do you manage your time and fit in the stuff you love to do?
