Get work done early, nap in afternoon, play the rest of the day! 😂
I think I will be exactly the same! 😆
Play? What kind?
I always look forward to these questions of the day. Lol My ideal day would consist of a morning run, an hour of writing, work (until 4:00 PM), time with nature, dinner with family, an hour of reading, and a perpetual flow of coffee. ☕️️ Thank you for asking! 😃
I look forward to these questions too.
I like your perpetual flow of coffee.
Thank you! It’s rare for me not to have some coffee in hand. 😃
I am like that with tea, at home and at work.
Thank you very much for answering to these questions! I love your schedule, especially the perpetual flow of coffee :)))
Have coffee on the deck and watch the ocean, feed the cats, write some, nap – at some point return to the deck/patio for dinner and the ocean again. Really, it’s all about getting out of a landlocked area!
I think the inspiration lies in the ocean! 😀
All writing, no more day job. Yay!
Oh God! That’s the dream!
Oh yeah! Maybe a pipe dream for now, but I hope I’ll get there one day.
I’d like it if I didn’t have to sleep. Sometimes interrupting what I am doing to go to sleep sounds silly. Cheers!
You “have to” intruder what you’re doing to go to sleep? How come?
For mental and general health. When one doesn’t get enough sleep, the whole life schedule gets messed up. Including ones digestion. It’s essential. Cheers!
An ideal schedule in my ideal world?! I’m pleased you asked! 😂 My rechargeable twin self would get up and do a selection of my housework whilst I have a lie in to recharge myself! Then once I get up my twin self goes back on charge and I have the rest of the day to do as I please! Presuming this is a weekend day, probably clean and photograph items from the latest Bootsale I’ve attended or be at a Bootsale! WOOHOO!
Nice! And if it’s not a weekend day, what would you do?
I look forward to these questions as well! I’d sleep in. Exercise, eat a lazy breakfast, write. Then it would be nap time. Then write and play! I could go to bed whenever I wanted. I wouldn’t have to take the day off just to make and keep appointments. Flexibility. Yes
So a flexible schedule would be the best for you, right?
Flexibility is good! 😊 Or at least a predictable schedule that allows for planning other things in life. I’ve gotten to where I have to take a day off from work to be able to keep appointments because my schedule is so unpredictable.
Hmmmm… If it would be possible to work only 5 hours instead of 10 during the week, I’d get in early to work, come home for an afternoon siesta, then have the rest of the day for free time (reading, bingeing tv, spending time with family and now that the apartment pool is open, getting some sun). I’ve gotten to the age where afternoon napping would really increase my productivity (I’m officially my mother).
What do you do for a living that it gets you so tired?
Executive Assistant at an Aviation company. You need a random job done? I’m your gal. Lol!!
I’m learning to prioritise myself and not wake up to get ready for work …. easier said than done. So, after a bit of research, I’m waking up early for ME, which is actually a bit wonderful 😊
I’m doing things that make me happy to be me in the morning and am in the middle of learning to make it a routine (21 days and 90 days etc) so I’ll never have to wonder where I stand with myself 😊
Obviously that means I need to get to bed very early and can’t spend too much time on the Internet ….. I guess, it looks like, I’m worth that bit of sacrifice for me 😊
Of course you worth the sacrifice. What do you do for yourself in the morning?
So these days, I wake up, snuggle with my dogs, light candles and incense for myself, sit in front of my vision board (that’s got nothing to do with what I want to achieve or things I want to accumulate) meditate, do my asana practice, walk the dogs and eat a gorgeous breakfast …. then slowly and mindfully, I get ready for work
It takes planning ahead and putting aside a lot of distractions to be in the flow in the morning
I do have days when I just can’t wake up at all and lay in bed past the time I want to get up, watching Wendy Williams and reading the latest gossip on Meghan Markle and then have to get up for work after all
Happily though, these “off” days are getting fewer …. so yay me! 😊
What about you Bogdan? 😊
Lately, I only prepare myself for work in the morning. I used to wake up earlier to work on some of my plans, but I find it very hard lately…

It sounds like a great “routine”, if we can call it that way!
Doing what’s most needed at the time. The day will be good if I can have some time for only myself. I need some time with ‘just me’. Not any fixed schedule.
A fixed schedule can have some “just you” time, don;t you think?
Maybe but not for me😊
Monday through Friday 9-5, no holidays no weekends. Well, it won’t possible because emergency room open 24 hrs and 365 days.
I hope you love working at the emergency room…
Getting everything I need done during the day without getting distracted by other things.
What distracts you the most?
Most of the time, it is little things. For example, not doing something productive, like watching silly videos.
4 hours meditating
4 hours eating
4 hours “learning”
4 hours helping others
8 hours sleeping
That’s a great schedule! How close are you to that?
😂😂😂Far, very far 🤦🏾♂️
Work takes up most of my time.
I do try to attend to each of the areas tho
Sleep until 7:30.
Get up. Have coffee and eggs for breakfast. Or toast and peanut butter.
Research for a couple of hours. Listen to music. Write an article.
Have some lunch. Go for a stretch or walk.
Do some cleaning…because in this dream I’d work from home.
Putz around for the rest of the afternoon. Maybe exercise a bit.
Have some dinner.
Putz around some more. Go out with friends. Watch a movie.
