Ivymere finds strength...somewhere, somehow
I’ve definitely been forced/motivated (in my own interest) to manage my time excellently. I’ve been incredibly focused on making sure I make time for myself so I don’t burn out on anything I’m doing…and just sleeping right.
I use my iPhone calendar A LOT. I refer to it daily. It decreases my anxiety about wondering if I’m forgetting an appointment or what to prepare and when to prepare for something. I use alerts and such.
I work 7 days a week and I also want to make sure I sleep enough (I require 7-8 hours of sleep) and I need to make sure I make time to eat and socialize with the people I love and care about. I also want to make time for my creative projects (so there are meetings and such with people as well as actual time spent doing them). I try to balance everything. I need to work out as well…so I’m inserting blocks of time where I commit to working out and under no circumstance do I dive into that time.
It’s hard, but it’s also nice to have some kind of routine going…so I know that I am spending enough time being balanced. I will NOT let work get the better of me and I refuse to get burnt out. Life is too short to let work overwhelm me.
