If you need to analyze your time use, and make more time for whatever you love doing, including your spiritual practices, you might want to plot your activities in a spreadsheet. Microsoft provides a daily scheduling template, that I adapted. I hope it serves you well.

Gratitude is thought of as thankfulness or appreciation, even indebtedness. Pure gratitude is unconditional.
Gratitude is the message of love offered by any soul to another, often for good service. That service may be provided by the planets, stars, galaxies and universes, by spiritual beings, sentient beings and all of nature.
This message of love and thanksgiving melts hearts and makes way for even more gratitude.
Gratitude builds a foundation for living well.
In spiritual practice, our gratitude is nourishment for Heaven and for our own soul, heart and mind.
Gratitude is a quality, one of the ten greatest (da) qualities for humanity to cultivate to become pure souls. In Mandarin we say, Da Gan En, Greatest Gratitiude.
Master Marilyn Smith has written a book on the subject, entitled Gratitude A Key to Happiness, and composed a mantra around gratitude. She sings, 'Gratitude Changes My Life.'
The emotion of gratitude is a feeling of happiness stemming from appreciation for the present moment, present experiences, possessions, relationships, circumstances, including the memories of those things.
Gratitude is said to put one's expectations into perspective and will therefore reduce the experience of suffering from a sense of lack or limitation. As seen from the lens of gratitude, we have enough.
