52.5 -- sleeping
14.5 -- food related
40 -- working
20 -- commuting
20 -- GF
12 -- friends
9 -- chores

4 -- gym overlap with social time or subtract from something above

Hope this helps :) All just a suggestion can't say for sure what your specific situation is like.

Ok, lets break it down it won't be easy,
168 hours in a week.
biggest chunk sleep.

get at least 7.5 hours a night to be healthy.

so 7.5 * 7 = 52.5 hours

left with 115.5 hours

got to eat, best not to rush this, but there are some optimizations you can make. One is food prepping.

Food prep lunch every day to save both money and time. this will take about an hour and will save roughly 1.15 hours over the week making lunch in the morning.

estimating 30 minutes to eat and make breakfast 30 min for lunch, 1hr for dinner. gives 2 hours a day or 14 a week + 30min for food prep = 14.5 hours

101 hours left food and sleep taken care of

full time job = 40 hours
commute is 2 hours so 4 there and back = 4*5 work days = 20hrs commuting

41 hours left

A healthy relationship should probably take up 20 hours a week roughly
or 2.85 hours a day. you can optimize this by sharing meal times. (this will depend a lot on the person though)

this leaves 21 hours for 2 groups of friends and chores around the house and hygiene.

house chores depending on the house can be done routinely each day at about 30 mins a day depending on size of house, and use. this is 3.5 hours for house chores. + grocery shopping (2hrs) + 30 mins a day for hygiene.

leaving 12 hours for social activity with friends.

spent over the weekend you could do Friday nights with 1 group of friends and saturday nights with the other leaving sunday for planning and other personal items you want to get done.

your biggest wasted chunk of time would be the commute. maybe a good time get on a hands free call and be social.

if you want to add health then I suggest working out with friends or GF, and making that part of your social time. other wise you will sacrifice social time to personal health which is a hard thing to do.

1 hr work out 4 days a week Get those rest days in ;)
