A Day In My Life

A Day In My Life

Recently I took a survey to see what kind of posts you guys would like to see on lifesfinewhine and I got a bunch of really fun ideas and A DAY IN MY LIFE was one of these ideas. I thought it would be fun to share my daily routine with you guys and just kind of give you an idea of what my day is like. I know there’s isn’t a lot going on in my daily life right now since I don’t have school and stuff but I still try to keep busy.With everything going on at the moment I don’t really go out much unless I need something from the store. This is what I did yesterday which was a Sunday so it was kind of a relaxed day for me. I really hope you enjoy this post and thank you Bookish Refreshment for suggesting this post idea! I think this is such a fun post to do and I really hope you enjoy reading the post as much as I enjoyed creating it.  

Wake up, meditation and breathing exercises (9:30 am to 10:30 am)

I try really hard to start my day with meditation and breathing exercises. As you guys know I suffer from anxiety but meditation and breathing exercises really help me out with it especially when I start my day out with it. It just makes my whole day so much better. I can’t always do it in the morning but I try really hard to do it whenever I can.

Eat breakfast (10:30 am to 11:00 am)

So, technically I don’t eat my breakfast I tend to drink it. And by that I mean I usually start the day with smoothies, tea or some protein milk. I feel gross when I eat for breakfast so I like to keep it simple.

Check on blog (11:00 am to 12:00 am)

Next I check up on my blog and go through my comments and check out some other blogs and stuff. I usually do this for about forty-five minutes to an hour.

Make lunch (12:00 pm to 2:00 pm)

After working on my blog for a bit I usually start working on my lunch and finish eating my lunch. Today, I decided to make a vegetable pancake- it turned out delicious and I’ll definitely be putting the recipe on my blog soon!

Check social media and emails (2:00 pm to 3:00pm)

After lunch I check out my social media and reply to stuff, check out my feed and reply to DM’s. I try to limit my social media time these days so I try to spend like fifteen/twenty minutes on each.

Check on blog (3:00pm to 3:40 pm)

I check on my blog again for a while and schedule the post for the day.

Duolingo (3:40 pm to 4:00 pm)

As you guys know I’ve been learning German on Duolingo again which has been super fun! I started from the beginning again just to remind myself the basic stuff. I usually spend about fifteen to twenty minutes doing my daily lesson.

Plan out the week (4:00 pm to 4:20 pm)

I like to plan out my posts for the week on Sunday so I know exactly what I’ll be posting and when. I like to have my posts ready in advance in case something happens to come up or I get busy. I usually use this adorable dog themed planner my sister got me!

Write +edit post and create + edit images (4:20 pm to 6:00 pm)

I begin writing my posts after planning out the posts for the week because I like to get them done at least a day or two in advance. It takes a while to write and edit the post, create and edit the images etc so I just prefer to do everything in advance. 

Make dinner (6:00 pm to 8:00 pm)

After doing this I like to start cooking dinner. I prefer to have a light dinner- usually something rice based. Today I decided to make a Korean cauliflower dish with rice- recipe coming soon! I ate it with seaweed and kimchi

Watch TV (8:00 pm to 9:00 pm)

After dinner I like to relax for a bit so I watch a TV show or a movie or something. I’m super into The Simpsons right now. Oh and if anyone has good movie recommendations please let me know in the comments!

Check on the scheduled post and blog (9:00 pm to 9:30 pm)

I check up on my blog again to make sure my scheduled post has gone up because WP can be annoying sometimes. I answer some more comments, look through other blogs and write some more.

Read (9:30 pm to 10:15 pm)

After this I like to take it easy and read for a while. Sometimes I drink some chamomile tea while reading because it’s very calming and helps me sleep better. Currently, I am rereading The Little Prince which is one of my favourite books of all time. 

Check on everything one last time (10:15 pm to 10:30 pm)

I check on social media, my blog and my emails one last time before bed. I do this about half an hour to an hour before I go to bed because doing something on a screen right before you go to sleep makes it more difficult to sleep. So I try not to use my phone right before bed.

Meditate (10:30 to 10:50 pm)

Before bed I like to meditate again because this helps me calm my brain down and put me in the right mental state to go to sleep. This is also when I take my CBD oil every two days.

Sleep (10:50-ish pm)

Finally, I go to bed and that’s pretty much the end of my day!

  3. Hi Pooja,

    Thanks for sharing your schedule.
    I’m assuming you are getting paid blogging as that’s a lot of time on being on the computer checking your blog, social media etc. Am I assuming correctly? It’s bitter sweet for me to be checking all of these platforms but good to know if that is what it takes to build a following.

    1. Thank you! I’m a part time blogger not full time yet but I spend more time checking on my blog social media these days as my school is done till fall and I have a lot more free time on my hands. Working on my blog helps me have something to do and yes spending more time on blogging is helping me grow. It’s usually a lot less when I have university work to do.

  4. My routine during the shutdown- 7:30 wake up which is very hard for a night owl. 8:30 to 10:30 teach. 10:30 take a nap because waking up at 7:30 is brutal. After nap check my blog, prepare for evening class, and eat. 7 to 9 teach evening class. 9 check my blog, check other blogs I follow and write my post for the next day.

  7. I feel like such a slug! I have things I have to do each day, like adventures in plumbing, etc. However, I rarely get everything done and can’t imagine how I did when I was working full-time before COVID. Yikes!!! What’s a schedule? 😂

    1. Haha that was me when lockdown began but I was like no I need to get my life together! However, I still do mess up sometimes and end up wasting most of the day.

  8. Wow you schedule is very organized! Mine would be more like wake up, look at phone, try to wake up properly more time on the phone, drink coffee, eat while watching something on tv or my phone, drink green tea and eat some more, more green tea and YouTube, play with baby and more green tea… lol

  9. Very orderly!! Mine’s more chaotic!
    You ought to check out the movie Hidden Figures. It a brilliant movie about the unknown black geniuses who were responsible for the success of NASA and the space race. It is a very watchable drama that really showed the racism and prejudice that was around and how three heroic ladies dealt with it to become central to NASA’s achievements.

    1. Thank you! I used to get lazy and only do it once in a while but once you force yourself to meditate every day for a few days it becomes a habit and it becomes easy to add to your schedule!

  10. I love your schedule. As a new blogger I have found the way you schedule time to read through your comments and other blogs very inspiring. Also can’t wait to get the recipe for the Korean cauliflower dish.

    1. It’s not that difficult when I’m on summer break but it’s a bit more tricky when I have school. I agree though- if you’re passionate about something you’ll find a way!

  13. Woah, it looks like you’ve got a well planned day! If I were to write a post like this; it would be the most disorganised routine ever. 😂😂

    I also like how consistent you are with your blogging schedule. I’m wondering how long it took for you to find a schedule that worked for you.

    1. Haha thanks! I’m not always organized but I try my best to be.

      It took me a few months to figure out my schedule but then I moved and started university which messed up my schedule. And then it took me about a year to find a schedule that worked for me while being a student.

  15. My mother is a very good planner. It has taken me over a decade to realise the benefits that come from effective planning and put my own plans down on paper. My plans at the moment are simply in a to-do list form, and apart from working during the day Monday to Friday and ultimate frisbee two nights a week, everything else is flexible as to when I do it throughout my day.

    The one thing that is the same every day is I start with prayer and reading one of the Psalms from the bible. Spending peaceful time this way really helps me cope with any issues or frustrations that I might have at work or when I get onto writing my books.

    Thank you for sharing your schedule. It’s really helpful to see how other bloggers plan and work. 🙂

    1. Thank you! I find planning and scheduling everything very beneficial too. I try to be flexible because not everything always goes as planned and that’s okay. However, as much as possible I try to stick to my schedule.

  16. As someone who’s trying to up his productivity and his blogging output, I really enjoyed this post. Now I know it takes much more than posting one article per week to make something out of a blog. Thanks for sharing, Pooja!
