I am big into nutrition right now. I may or may not be depending on how great my craving for cookies is in the next couple of months (seriously, I have less nutritional discipline than a Biggest Loser contestant without extreme external-monitoring) but for right now I'm big into nutrition.
Each day I eat a balance of proteins and fiber, less carbs (gotta look good for bikini season) and plenty of water. It wasn't until I was enjoying one of my colorful meals with my paramour that I considered: what if the food pyramid could be applied to our time budget?
I often speak about priorities here on CFiST but today I'd like to give you a tool to make that concept a reality. So even though Time Pyramid would make an awesome 80's sci-fi title, in this context I'd like to harken back to the now retired food pyramid.
Start by considering all the different activities you do during the day. For example, my list would look like the following:
It's pretty busy to say the least. Now, here's how I would break that down, carrying the food analogy:
The essentials. Require the most servings and form the building blocks of your happiness.
The enriching activities. Substantial, colorful, and tasty!
Essential, but fewer servings. Build mental strength and get some "culture". Get it? Yogurt joke.
Delicious, but to be partaken of... sparingly.
The result is a coherent metaphor for time "nutrition"; a way to balance out your activities in the best way possible using knowledge you already know. Pretty cool, right?
So how about you? What does your time nutrition look like? List your activities and try breaking them down into these groups and see how many servings you get in an average day. Feel free to post the results in the comments below and think about eating healthier. I have a hunch that you'll be glad you did.
