Stress and how I plan to lower it

Life is really taking a toll on my personal development and my muses. Work, school, diabetes, working out, trying to lose weight, all very stressful. When I want to loosen up, I try to do a few things: play video games, watch movies, listen to music, write, or code. This last two years, I've spent more time on the games and movies than the others.

The last semester of school, however, couldn't even let me do that. I've been so stressed out, and with the addition of insulin, I've gained more weight and have not had the energy nor the luck of getting my blood sugars down.

I think it is time to make myself happier this year. The only way I can think of doing this is be becoming a little tighter in my scheduling.

My time goals:

  • 20-30 minutes of exercise every day
  • 1 hour of music and cleaning
  • 1-2 hours of studying/schoolwork every day
If I can accomplish this, then I should have more time to learn new coding skills.

For those that care, I want to design some watch apps for Pebble, that combine some Microsoft HealthVault data with alarms for diabetes care.
