As most of you know I started my day job not so long ago, but I could not expect that my life will change so much when I started working. Now it is something terrible! I have no time for anything at all. My life is all about weekends, work and sleep! I can't even find free time to read a book! And visit mylot! Help me, maybe you know what should I do so that my life would be more pleasant again.

so sorry to hear that but if ur really looking to make changes what I Usually do is make a list pros and cons and let that decide for me! IF at all possible talk to ur boss about changing ur schedule maybe split the FULL time with another part timer mom!? lots of places do this these days so they can get our of paying u benefits (mostly) but most are good about letting u keep them each of u working enough to keep them as well as splitting the hours! just a thought but try the pros and cons lists they always work wonders for me alway help me make the right choice! :) Good luck!

YOu just need to learn some time management skills like every one else. In order to AFFORD to do the leisurely things in life, most of us have to work so we can pay the bills. learn how to be more efficient with the necessities, like cooking and cleaning. Make sure you eat healthy, and get plenty of sleep, so that you have the energy to get your job done, take care of yourself and your home, and you'll be fine. it takes time to adjust, but you'll get better at it.

Bad News! This is as good as it gets. You either keep doing what you are doing now in order to make money, save money... and improve your financial situation... so that you can have some fun in the future... or you stay poor all your life. This is the human condition. It will be a lot easier on you if you accept that "That is what life is all about". If you can't... you are in trouble. Money or poverty are the only two choices in this life. The trick is to improve your working conditions to make as much money as possible without doing more work for it. And don't make too many committments outside of work... so that you have time to relax and play. You don't make money by working long hours. You make money by being very good at what you do. People will pay you more money in recognition of your talents.

Dear Soleya, work only as much is necessary and spend some time for yoruself.If you r the only earner then you have no choice but if you r working only to keep urself busy then you should lessen or quit the job.Someone once asked god- 'what one thing about man amazes you the most?' God replied- 'he loses his health for money and later loses money too'

You know, life is not always so smooth for us if we want to make more money by doing a normal job. When we lose something, we are also gaining something from what we are doing. I hope that you are enjoying your job though you have much less time to enjoy your life. It is the same with me as I have a stable job and have to work during the day and sometimes during the evening before nine. I still enjoy my life and work and I try to spend my spare time to mylot as much as possible.
