2 hours to eat, (including cooking) and;
1 hour for personal hygiene (including getting dressed, washing and so on.)

8 hours a day working which is dependent on several factors
1 hour travelling or embarking on journeys
That’s another 9 hours. Add this to the previous 11 hours already used and the exact total will be 20hours. That leaves us with only 4 hours to perform any other activities as desired.
