Finding Balance - Between Work, Play and Life

February 13, 2007 12:45pm CST
After recently starting a new job back in Jan/8 of this year. I'm now working evenings. I find it hard to get time during the day, and/or have energy to do something good for myself. I am extremely groggy. When I get back I have quite a bit of energy, but it's really late, we're talking like sometime 2am here. On my days off I usually spend time with my boyfriend, as long as he has time off as well. I run a website that has gone by the wayside becuase I haven't had time. I have several interests that I miss - namely photography and web design because of not finding a balance. Fitting 1 more thing seems so extremely hard. I'd also like to have an exercise routine, but I think I have figured it's best to have exercise equiptment at home then going to a gym. I don't know if you all can tell I have an overall frustrated tone to this discussion. I feel pent up and about to burst. I just spent a good solid 20 minutes daydreaming about going skiing again. Any advice?

Boy it sounds like you have a really busy life. I'm the same way as you I wouldn't be able to go right to bed after getting home. I would need time to unwind. There never seems to be enough time in the day. All you can do is your best and don't be hard on yourself. A hectic life is not your fault it's just a way of life I think. Good Luck.

If I was in your position I would look for a new job. It isn't worth sacrificing your life just for the sake of a job. The reason for working is to get money to enjoy life with, if you don't have time to enjoy yourself then there is no point in having a job.
