What my daily routine looks like

Whenever anyone would ask me about my daily schedule, I’d usually be stumped for an answer.


Ever since I’ve begun freelancing and fiction writing in 2017 (buy/download, read, and review my book PiKu & ViRu here—it’s FREE on Kindle Unlimited), I’ve been experimenting with every permutation and combination of daily routines possible.


Unfortunately, nothing really would stick for long.


Until October 2021.


Following my rock-bottom moment that month, I realised what my true priorities are.


Based on those, I’ve been able to come up with a daily routine that’s perfect for me at this stage of my life. Here’s what it looks like.

Sure, it’s a flexible one, but I try to stick to it as much as possible.


Also, I wish I can wake up at 5 a.m. so I can finish my Morning Pages by 6, read for an hour after that, and set out for a refreshing brisk walk at 7 before having my breakfast at 8. [Also read: How I completed #500DaysOfJournaling, despite the pandemic]


Considering I’m still in the process of making my nightly bedtime no later than 11 p.m. (a task in these days of the internet, you have to admit), this dream routine is still a distance away. But I’m working towards it.


Of course, I don’t work on Mondays, so many of these to-dos aren’t applicable for the time. Read my blog post: Why I take my Mondays off from work.


Remember that not everyone can adhere to this daily routine; this is just for your inspo. You need to find out what works for you and follow it accordingly.
