A day in the life of a Graphic Designer

The inspiration for writing this blog came to me actually from Youtube, so thanks to all the vloggers out there who are working so hard to create content for us. I watch so many videos on a daily basis with the title ‘A day in the life of a singer.. dancer.. sportsman.. designer.. etc.’ While reading so many blogs I never found an article with this title, though there might be some I came across none.

As you all know I come from the capital of Punjab, India where food is one of the most essential parts of our lives ever since we are born. So following that my day starts at half past six by cooking meals for the entire day. It takes me approximately two hours to cook Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner for myself and my family. I try to cook all the meals in the morning because I am working full time as a Graphic Designer with an Oil and Gas company. Though my day at the office starts at around half past ten I usually do not know whether I will be able to come back home after my usual 8.5 hours shift or will I have to stay longer in office. As I am not very fond of having junk food or readily available food so I get my food from home.

After preparing meals, I change into my exercise clothes. Either I go out for a walk if it’s not very sunny or else I prefer doing cardio exercises at home. After a 45-minute exercise session, I take a bath and get ready for work. I leave from home at around quarter to ten and it takes me around 45 minutes to reach the office. Before leaving I have my breakfast along with a glass of milk.

At work, I start with a cup of tea or coffee. I plan my day, list down the pending tasks, prioritize based on the delivery dates and start working.
Alongside, I start listening to music to keep my mood fresh and maintain my concentration level. Between half-past one to two in the afternoon I have my lunch and come back to my desk with a cup of hot water and start working again. Since the head office of my company is based in Houston with various business units across the world so normally after half-past six in the evening I have a few meetings to be taken care of.

I leave my office anytime after eight. If I am able to leave by eight I have my dinner after reaching home and if I leave anytime after eight then I have my dinner in the office only. Once I reach back home I discuss all the good and bad things that happened during the day with my family, watch TV for some time or read a book and then go to sleep at around half past eleven.

So that is how my schedule is and I would love to hear yours in the comment section below.
