Experts say ensure that you get at least seven hours of sleep each day in order to function at your best. I've tested this theory and found that this statement is accurate. During those seven hours your body still functions in the the capacity that it is designed to function while one is resting. Your blood and oxygen continue to flow as your body rejuvenates.
There's 17 other hours in your day that has to be accounted for. Most of the remaining 17 hours are often spent working in order to take care of monthly responsibilities. If you work an eight hour shift, that leaves roughly nine hours left. Within the remaining nine hours, that includes your morning routines, travel time to and from work, and any responsibilities that you may have left before you begin the routine of sleep before the next day starts.
Since there is a limited amount of time left, its important to plan ahead and schedule your time as often as possible. That does not mean the schedule can not be amended. It is better to have a plan, than not have a plan at all. How much of your time is waisted during the day? While you audit your time, explore ways to eliminate time wasters in order to maximize your time. Remember we are given 24 hours. Let's make the most of it.
