Hello respected teachers,

Which one is correct, please?

1) The more you waste you time, the more you become tired.

2) The more you waste your time, the more tired you become.



I am looking forward to your answers.

(1) could refer to the frequency and/or the degree to which you become tired. If you mean only the degree, then (2) sounds more natural.

The more time you waste, the more tired you feel.
