HEY IT’S FRIDAY
Do you also have that work/study-related stresses that bleeds into your precious Saturday and Sunday and you had totally forgot how to relax? Sometimes, for me, it’s just too hard not to work 24/7 days in the week. It’s all most becoming a habit or I must say a lifestyle. On the one hand, I’m committed in being mindful and creating balance in my life. On the other hand, I have a lot of dreams and goals and I enjoy giving my all to pursuing them.
I’ve decided that what’s most important is not to create a black and white understanding of which days I work and which days I don’t, but instead, to be sure I have sufficient time for play and to focus on fully enjoying it. When I have gaps in activity, I feel a natural pull towards my laptop, partly because I enjoy my work as an editor and partly because it’s habitual. It helps me to relax but still I have also other important stuff to do. That’s not to say you need to be doing something all day but hey I also can’t help it when I really get caught up into the blogging world all day. I just want to say that it might help to commit blocks of time such as some quality time with some friend, exercise, watching a movie, or anything else you would like to do. The simple act of planning something might make it easier to fully commit. Oh well it’s also something that I have to work on:)
How about you, do you have the same habits?
