A combination of all of these + I’ll keep more up-to-date with my domestic chores like ironing...

1. Spend more time with my family
2. Do more CPD - I'm trying to do an accounting qualification but I struggle to set aside time to study for it

Sleep more Jul 26, 2017

I try to squeeze so much in my day that I end up cheating on my sleep.

It's a lifelong habit. I remember we did an exercise similar to this one in high school, and one of my classmates said "give the extra time to Muriel."

Sleep Jul 26, 2017

As I get older (I will turn 44 in September) I tend to get six hours or less sleep, and this affects all of my daily activities, including translation work.

Have a nice day you guys!

I'd most likely end up procrastinating more!

Work more if needed, but I would spend more time with the family.

Prorate, that is Jul 28, 2017

Divide the extra time proportionally to all activities I do today would be a good choice. Balance is important.
