72 hours every week, once I take out 40 for the work week and 56 for eight hours of sleep every night.
72 hours. Doesn't that just seem like ALL KINDS of time? So why do I always feel like I don't have enough time?
Well, at least an hour of them every day goes to self-care: showering, etc. in the morning, getting ready for bed at night. So now we're down to 65. Then there is cooking, eating and cleaning--conservatively another hour a day. That's 58.
Working out is about 2 hours a day, leaving 44. 44 hours that I could be spending on craft work, reading, spending time with hubby. At this point, I bet I don't spend one hour a day doing those things, but even if I did, That would still leave 37 hours.
37 hours a week that I fear are going into the internet. Yes, there are lots of good things I get out of the internet, but there is also a lot of just plain wasted time. 5 hours a day. Almost 5 and a half.
I am addicted. I need to get this under control. The problem is that I can't just turn off the internet, because my whole job is based about 80% around using it. But I'm going to have to limit my Spark time, and close the window to that email account when I've reached the end of my alloted time. I'm going to have to close down all other social media, and keep it closed.
If I give myself 2 hours a day for playing on the internet, I will still recover 23 hours of time for other activities. Almost one full day of each week, taken back from this machine.
I have to do it.
