Time for Time

Every year I feel unexpectedly sad that the summer solstice occurs before I even have a chance to fully utilize the long daylight hours. Suddenly the days are getting shorter even though there’s a full summer ahead, and there’s something that always makes me feel a little desperate about acknowledging that. So, today I started to think about the ways in which we spend our time. After a little research I came to the conclusion that we don’t need that elusive 25th hour. We just need to recognize the value of the 24 hours we have.

One thought on “Time for Time

  1. I love this chart, and I would be curious to see how the biggest bubble—working and commuting—would look if those two factors were separated. I worked as a nurse for many years, and now I have an office job close to home, and I found myself gaining weight because I wasn’t on my feet running around a hospital all day. So I bought a bike and have been vigilant about riding to the office (well, mostly!). I figure if I’m going to spend so much time commuting, I might as well make it something that benefits fits me, instead of drains me.
