Most people are taught from a young age to get a job that will make you lots of money so you can enjoy doing the things you love. But if you have a high stress job, even if it pays well, you’ll never get to enjoy the things that truly make you happy in life.
When you’re constantly working, you often sacrifice relationships. Working too much can cause you to not have time to spend with your family and friends. Make sure that you have a good balance of work and spending time with your loved ones when you can.
If you’re spending all of your time working, you won’t have time to do things that you enjoy. You need to make sure that you can have more of what makes you happy in life rather than what makes you the most money.
This could mean taking time to travel to places you’ve always wanted to go, or simply engaging in your hobbies such as gardening or cooking. The main cause of most people’s stress is their career.
Stress takes a toll on your health, and could cause things like severe migraines, chronic inflammation, or heart problems which could potentially land you in the hospital. Working a highly stressful job that takes up a large portion of your time is bound to cause your health to suffer.
Along with physical health problems, stress due to your career can also cause mental health issues. Stress can cause you to have severe panic attacks and develop long-term anxiety and depression.
You can ensure that you’re taking care of your mental health by taking time to focus on self-care - like meditating, reading a book, taking a bath, or any other stress-relieving activity.
Taking care of your personal life is just as, if not more important than working a high paying job, because you will have a much happier life. Money alone isn’t what makes people’s lives enjoyable.
It’s doing the things that they love, taking care of their health, and spending time with loved ones that makes life really worth living. Throwing away a chance at a happier lifestyle to earn more money isn’t worth it, because someday the memories will be much more important than how much money’s in your bank account.
You have to prioritize what’s important. Money will always be around. However, you and the people you love won’t, so make sure you’re taking care of your needs and spending time with your loved ones.
