Struggling to find the balance between all the facets of your life can at times seem impossible. Between the daily activities of working, nurturing relationships, running errands, cleaning house how do we find the time to stay fit and focused?How do we find the gentle balance of juggling both sides of our lives – the day job to-night job hustle?
Balance and time management can be such a struggle that I happen to be writing this post while commuting to my gig in Jersey. And three days later I’m finishing it because, I just had to many other things that needed to be done. There never seem to be enough hours in the day when you are full speed ahead in the hustle life.
Finding the balance of juggling two different lives is stressful and exhausting. Not to mention the constant shift from late nights to early mornings creates a sense of shock within your body and internal clock. The effects of sleep deprivation alone are damaging both physically and psychologically. Those lost hours of sleep are making us less efficient and at higher risk for health problems.
I average 5 to 6 hours of sleep, 6 hours counts as a good night. It’s not for a lack of wanting to sleep longer, my body just wakes up after that amount of sleep. I jump for joy, ok not literally, any night I get over 6 1/2 hours sleep. I feel so charged and ready to take on the world. It’s a great feeling. I want that feeling more. It’s a wonder that I manage to repeatedly go to bed around 4 or 5 am, be up by 10am and be productive. Even I am amazed at what I manage to get done
How do you manage to juggle both worlds? Do you get enough sleep or find yourself constantly deprived? What do you do to counteract the stresses of the hustle life?
