Time analysis

Category Hours Last week Notes
Sleep 61.6 61.1 8.8 hours of sleep a day; the constant battle of the satisfaction of waking up early, the need to avoid sleep deprivation, and the interestingness of evening life
Work 46.4 40.7 Overtime dealing with project wrap-up
Routines 16.0 18.4 Cooking: 1.6 hours, tidying: 0.5 hours
Break 12.0 16.5 Mostly eating-related; will break this out separately

I’m going to try limiting my writing time further, and cutting a little bit back on sleep. Also experimenting with breaking routines down into more detail.

    I love what you share especially how you show it visually. I took a couple ideas from what you shared in relationship to how you are becoming aware of what you are doing not only in your professional life but iin your personal life.
