    Hi Anika,
    That's an interesting topic as usual and will be helpful to get better ideas and tit bits for betterment of life style too.
    Here goes mine:
    I will wake up by 5:15, brush, cook and while cooking itself i will broom the house inside and outside and put kolam.
    Both lunch and breakfast preparations, cleaning dishes will be done before 6:15 am and water the plants in my garden and wake up my husband by 6:30 and we will have coffee together.
    Will pack lunch boxes and will wash clothes by hand and have bath.
    Around 7:30 will have my breakfast and move to office and come back to home by 8 pm. Meanwhile will be checking with my son on his online classes as he stays at his grandparents place.
    Will take bath, prepare dinner and will have it before 9 pm.
    After cleaning dishes, will clean stove and cut veggies for next day, keep everything ready for next day's cooking and will go to sleep by 10 pm.
    Whenever i get time in between, my only relaxation is Indusladies as i do not have friends to get chill with or to express myself.
    This is my routine in weekdays and by weekends will spend with my son as much as possible between these works.

    :hello: @anika987 @Madhurima21

    All are given 24 hours in a day irrespective of the status gender young or old, able or differently abled, sick or robust.

    2. But then, only few manage time well and accommodate numerous things in it and excel in specific fields but majority content with willy-hilly doing the routine; and wish to always remain in comfort zone.

    3. Few managed to look relaxed, though they are burdened with many chores but many look tired, fatigued or even enervated with just thought of commencing the day by its sheer size or enormity of the work or task to be carried out.

    4. Few plan and manage, many areas of domestic arena in right time, making consistent progress by and by or even by degrees and turn themselves qualified for a Padma Bhushan or Padma Sri award & get reward(s) DAILY from DH & kids & even MIL.

    5. Some manage their entire wakeful hours by organising structuring every minute while many believe only in chaotic management. Some begin their mornings by standing on their head believing it would result in better activation of their gray matter.

    6. Few women are great in riding simultaneously two horses - hearth & Office - but the one manage only home, kids that includes hubby are truly blessed.

    7. Few turn into powerful women a la Kamla Harris or PepsiCo Indira Nooyi or late Jayalalithaa or Indira Gandhi.

    8. Summing up - It looks delegating and planning in right time are the keys to overcome the ennui of hearth and office, kid &DH, & get best of kitchen and fitness, health & wealth.

    9. I presume - THOUGH IT IS DECLARED FUN THREAD - there would be no taker of day to day schedule that my spouse follow in collaboration with me & so I am not listing it here.

    Thanks and Regards.

    God - Bless All better-halves with the best DH best kitchen best Kids all in that order & best......

    :wave: @anika987

    It has been a year since we retired early. It was a huge change for us, we only knew when to get retired but were not 100% sure how to utilize 24hrs actively without getting bored. We are still in learning process. :grimacing:

    My daily routine changes depending on the days.

    From Saturday to Wednesday routine if we are at home
    We wake up around 7.30. Brush then have hot water and lemon then we get ready to leave for jogging
    8 to 9.15 - jogging and yoga/gym.
    After the morning workout, DH goes and sits in front of the laptop till 11 am.
    9.30 - ragi malt/fruit for breakfast.
    Between 9-30 to 10.30 - my skin-pampering and showering time. At this time after applying some face mask/oil, I will check daily deals/coupons after that some light cleaning house.
    11 - we start cooking lunch while watching TV/listening to Kishore Kumar/old songs ( I do the rotis and salary, DH does curry)
    12 to 1 - lunch and kitchen cleaning.
    1 to 4.30 - we play games/ watch movies/grocery shopping
    4.30 to 5.30 - tea and check on plants(based on weather)/ talk to my sis.
    5.30 to 6 - we leave for a light evening walk and chit chat with neighbors (if we encounter anyone)
    6 to 7 - watch TV/ talk to my brother(on weekends)
    By 7 we start cooking and dinner at 8
    8 to 9 - dinner and cleaning kitchen
    9 to 11.30 - watching TV/ checking social network sites/again checking coupons and deals/calling in-laws or my cousins or friends or relatives
    11.30 we got to bed

    Thursday - if the weather is good outdoor activities(cycling/volleyball/beach)


    Friday routine if we are at home. Friday is lawn mowing and house cleaning day. So I wake up at 8.30 and skip the morning workout.
    After morning breakfast we start the chores around 9.30 and it continues till 11.30 to 12.
    12 - shower then continues same as other days.

    On Saturday mornings if the weather is good I go out surfing with my former colleagues.

    Sometimes I feel bored of this Florida weather. I like to see the snow fall, leaves changing. I feel like we have only one season summer and summer. :unamused:
