The motivation for this quarantine routine came from the fact that I have always been a lazy kid who just wants relax on a couch with snacks and a mobile.
But, during this quarantine, I thought that I have the whole day to myself so why not try transforming my life and all I needed was to make a quarantine routine.
Acharya Chanakya, set up a routine for the king. He made a routine that allowed the king to sleep only 4.5 hours. I mean the king who must rule a huge province and here I am always laying on my bed doing nothing.
So, I went around the internet and saw everything I needed to make a quarantine routine.
Planning My Quarantine Schedule
I took 24 hours and subtracted 4.5 hours of my sleep and 1 hour of exercise and 4 hours of leisure time, these are what I call the necessity hours.
I was left with 14.5 hours in my quarantine schedule. Now I must decide what habits I want to adopt, and the first thing that came to my mind was reading. Now, here’s the thing I love reading but I am so lazy that I read like twice a week. So, I assigned an hour to read every day.
This quarantine schedule is useless if you are not consuming knowledge.
Another habit I adopted was to clean my study table and organizing my room before I go to bed. I also wanted to practice journaling so in total I assigned an hour for that too.
So, now I am left with 12.5 hours in my quarantine schedule. The rest of the time I used for my priority tasks like my CAT preparation, online courses, and assignments.
I gave my first task 5 hours and breaks separately, my second task 2 hours and breaks separately and the last task 1 hour with no breaks in my quarantine schedule.
I used the time left in my quarantine schedule to relax and have fun.
I made my quarantine schedule so loosely because going overboard while making a new routine is a rookie mistake. So, I used to go to bed every night at 22:00 and I used to wake up at 02:30.
After following my quarantine schedule, I was able to complete almost all my work. I finished a few books, completed my online course, and started with new ones, and submitted all my assignments.
Organizing my room motivated me every morning to work. A clean room looks more spacious and cleaner desk looks a bit more professional. Writing a journal gave me a relaxed mind before sleeping as I share my happiness and sorrows with my journal.
I saw a significant drop in my weight and gained muscle by working out and I made my life better through this quarantine schedule.
Experiment with My Quarantine Routine
Now like every other person I am not going to lie to you and say I exactly followed this quarantine schedule every day.
I am still experimenting with my sleeping schedule and finding the most efficient routine. I am also experimenting with the way I make a to-do list. Sometimes I use my diary, sometimes my whiteboard, sometimes my phone and sometimes my laptop. Trust me these little things make a huge difference.
