    For the last 22 years I have kept a diary. I liked the idea of writing down what I have been doing, where I have been and noting down feelings and impressions that I had in my travels; also sometimes (well, quite often) I forgot what I have been doing the day before! so keeping a diary forces me to remember things.
    Every week we do voluntary work for the environment; when we are not working we go for a walk or visit a nature reserve. Our life is aimed at nature – working it, walking it, watching it. We love it.

    Sounds like a delightful way to spend your days! Thanks for the snapshot into your day! I think the “go-to” answer for so many is “I’m so busy.” But ask them what they are busy doing and you’ll find many really don’t have such a grasp on what that looks like. I have started tracking my days in a journal, for a bunch of reasons. Maybe because as I get older, I know there are many more years behind me than in front, so I want to be sure I’m using those years (and days, and hours and well, minutes) the way I want to be, but I’m keeping track.

    It looks something like: 1-hour reading, 30 minutes of stretching exercises DVD, 30 min email check, 2 hours of work, one hour lunch, etc. etc.

    Optimizing my day! LOL… It feels good though to know when I say “I’m busy,” — I know what it is I’m busy with!
