Schedule/Time Management

When I am not working, I try to manage my time well. I know that I must devote time to the job search but I also know that sitting in front of a computer 10+ hours a day with no break will do me no favors physically.

I try to do my hardcore search activities Monday, Wednesday and Friday and then Tuesday and Thursday I use to do errands, work on housework and attempt to keep myself from becoming a completely worthless lump.  That doesn't mean I don't do any searching on Tuesday & Thursday, just that I diversify my activities more on those days.

I've already reached the point that I have no idea what day it is. I try to mostly take weekends off from the search only because getting burned out and being "at work" all of the time is not healthy.  It's not healthy when you are working for an employer and it's not healthy when you are "freelancing" (or searching for a new job).

So, I am keeping quite busy. I have an errand to run outside of the house tomorrow, not far from home.  I think I will try to get in a workout tomorrow, as well.  I've gone from walking 5000+ steps a day to around a  thousand and feel like I need to be more active.  And I have a bunch of shredding I need to do (I save it for "down time" and haven't gotten to it for quite some time.... way past due!)
