Tracking Time

Lately, I’ve been interested in the topic of time. I don’t know about you…but I never feel like there’s enough of it.

We have a relatively predictable life — get up, drop off the kid at daycare, go to work, come home from work, try and get a work out in, eat dinner, go to bed. Predictability and routine can be a good thing (I personally advocate for it in a lot of my blog posts), but it can also feel suffocating and leave us with a feeling of never having enough time for the things we really want to do. 

Does anyone else feel this way? I certainly do…

Which begs the question — what am I spending time on that I could spend less of? 

And another question — If I had more time, what would I do with it? 

Oh and one more — What do I even enjoy doing anymore? 

In search of these answers, I’ve dedicated January to tracking my time. I plan on tracking how much I sleep, commute, work, eat, play with my daughter, hang out with my husband, etc. It sounds exhausting to even begin this, but I’m convinced that tracking time is the first step to understanding how you’re spending your time and how you can get more of it. 

We only have one life, after all. Let’s spend it wisely. 

More to follow. Can’t wait to share my results with you all!
