So I woke up today at my usual time 2pm-ish – Don’t judge me. Next my mother walks into the room and starts shouting about being lazy.
She said some other things I didn’t hear because I was sleepy. Anyway I decided to really think about if I am truly lazy.
My daily lazy routine goes something like this:
- Wake up at 2pm 😟
- Eat Breakfast /Lunch (Brunch?)
- Shower and the start reading or writing
- If there is food to cook, and it’s my turn to cook, I cook it
- Watch my siblings exercise (Yes!, I am too lazy to join )
- By 6pm when NEPA brings the light or the generator comes on and I watch TV till 2 am
- From 2 am I troll the internet until 6am when I fall asleep
OK, looking at this will definitely make me seem lazy. But, hey! I am a victim of circumstance. I have literally nothing to do at home so why wake early in my opinion?
My mother is always going on and on about how a woman needs to be extra hard working to run a home and career at the same time.
The thing is I remember that during my NYSC, I religiously kept my room clean while also going to my school (PPA) to teach.
I decided to look at this thing critically and I can say this. I am more productive at nighttime, I feel more energized, Ideas flow faster and I manage to accomplish more.
In the morning, I feel very lacklustre and generally bland.So seeing as it is working for me, I will continue to sleep by 6am and wake up by 2pm until I have cause to rearrange my Lifestyle.
So my advice to you is find what works and by God stick to it until something better comes along and makes you reconsider.
