You know you’re stressed when you come home to find your mum in your kitchen and you burst into tears. Good luck controlling yourself when you realise she’s bought you a bottle of your favourite cider, cooked you dinner and packed you a tasty lunch for tomorrow.
You might of noticed things have been a little quiet here lately – it’s just a little full on with study, work, social and finding time to sleep. The working out side of things has fallen away into that dark shady place us procrastinators call “tomorrow”.
This is bad. The working out is what keeps me sane.
I know that this isn’t a new issue. Everyone feels as though there aren’t enough hours in the day, and use it as an excuse to not exercise. To not eat right. To not look after themselves.
I don’t want that.
My work (and work related study) will always come first. That’s not negotiable. And I can’t be alone in this.
So I ask your advice: what works for you? How do you get 10-14 hours of work and study in every day while still getting a full night’s sleep, a social life and private quiet-time on top of a decent fitness routine?
Or is it more a matter of something’s gotta give and I need to re-prioritise?
