The aim of the activity is for participants to reflect on their daily routines and time management. These learnings all contribute toward more profound self-awareness.
Teenagers and young adults
Each participant receives an A4 paper with 24 squares, reflecting the 24 hours of a day.
In the first round, they were required to fill in as many squares as they spent with everyday activities on a day, for example, sleeping, eating, bathroom preps, school, learning etc.
In the second round, they were given another A4 paper with the same number of squares and required to fill in as many squares as they spent with time consumers, such as unnecessary social media use.
Finally, in the last round, they were asked to create a daily schedule, considering the two previous rounds’ results, in which they had proper time for sleeping and creative Me-time.
Participants usually made shocking revelations during the exercise. For example, they realise that they spend more time in school than in bed, sleeping.
