For about the last week, I’ve been adjusting my daily routine and I’ve been struggling to decide which is the optimal time to complete my work.
At night, I can squeeze in more time and work but it seems like the work isn’t as good as the morning because there are moments when I almost fall asleep at my computer. I think I need to start making a cup of tea after the kids go to bed and gut it out. If I start around 10pm, I can get 2 or 3 hours of work done a night.
In the morning, I can tell myself to wake up at a certain time but actually doing it is another thing. The most I can get done in the morning is an hour, maybe two if I hustle. That means I need to go to bed right right my kids go to bed which is around 9:30, get about 6 hours sleep, and wake up around 4 or 4:30. After my morning work goals, I eat breakfast, shower, and get dressed to leave for work by 7:00. It’s a tight schedule.
I think I know what I need to accomplish but neither situation is optimal. I need to drink some caffeine and get a handle on my nightly side hustle work sessions, so I can accomplish what needs to be done and free up my mornings to relax, eat a healthy breakfast, prepare for the day.
