A year of wellbeing

I’m a fan of trying to live your best life although I’m probably the worst person to take advice on such matters, which probably makes it pointless that I’ve put together the blogs I wrote on wellbeing this year. Most of the blog posts seem to be about sleep and not having time, I’m not sure where I get my inspiration. The good thing for you is that each blog post is really short so they won’t eat into your time. Enjoy

Where does time go?

Have you heard of ‘Timeboxing’?

Do you use a small fork?

Screen time to bedtime.

Fiscal planning.

A flaw in my system.

Humming.

Inserting the toilet roll

How long before bed do you brush your teeth?

Aims and aspirations.

Where does time go?

I was looking through some notes from 2013 and one of the things I felt back then was that I didn’t have enough time to do the things I wanted to do. This was 3 years before becoming a dad, so if I didn’t have time then I certainly don’t now, which begs the question, does anyone feel they have time to spare?

Tinkering with your CV

I know it’s been said that tinkering with your CV is the job searcher’s favourite way to procrastinate but I’ve decided to alter my personal profile. Let me know your thoughts. You can contact me via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Cheers.

Have you heard of ‘Timeboxing’?

I read an article that mentioned ‘Timeboxing’. This is when you plan every minute of your week. I genuinely don’t think I could account for the next 60 mins never mind a whole week. Has anyone attempted anything like this? Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Cheers.

If you have a spare 32mins check out my comedy podcast Thanks.

Alternatives to work.

The other day I looked up alternatives to working and apart from not spending money, the only things available to me are gambling & vlogging. I doubt either would work out well for me.
One would make me feel deeply unpopular & the other would likely see me without a roof over my head. With this in mind do you have any suggestions as to what I could do? Feel free to contact me via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Cheers

Stressed pets.

On our latest #prongcast, Prong2 told me that rats get stressed. I’ve never been a pet person (why would you invite an animal into your house?) so I didn’t know if he was having me on. Do you/did you have a pet that suffered from stress and how did this stress manifest itself? Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic

Have you lent a stranger your phone?

I was in a playground this morning, when a man outside the playground asked if he could use my phone to ring his friend. He tried to reassure me everything was above board by saying I could keep hold of the phone. There was nothing about him or his request that made me think this would be a good idea so I lied and said I’d left my phone at home but was I right? Have you ever lent your phone to a stranger and it turned out well? Maybe that’s how you met your wife/husband etc… Feel free to let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic

Do you use a small fork?

I rarely listen to much that Sir Alan Lord Sugar has to say but every time I use a teaspoon to eat some cereal I think of him. This is because a few years ago I remember him evangelising the benefits of using small cutlery. His reasoning being that by using a small fork or spoon you will trick your brain into thinking it’s eaten more than it has. With this in mind, I was wondering if you subscribe to the undersized cutlery theory, or is it just Lord Sugar (and occasionally me). Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic.
