I'm working a Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 job. I'm thankful for it, don't get me wrong. But sometimes I feel trapped, like I'm stuck in a rat race... Work takes over my mind, it disrupts my sleep and I find myself stressed, tired and nervous all the time.
Some time ago these moments happened quite often... Until I realized I just had to lay down the things that are most important to me and find a way to focus on them instead of being swallowed by work and this toxic daily routine. I just had to set some boundaries! I decided I needed to find ways to free my mind so that I could enjoy the time spent with family and friends in my spare time. I needed to relax and take better care of my quality of life.
Some people around me told me at some point that I had a lot of creative energy and that I had to put it to work... That's when I decided to start this blog. And it has since become my little personal project, my escape, my wonderland!
Another thing I started doing was taking a day off from time to time, not for doing chores or for a planned vacation... Just one of those "dolce far niente" days.
This week, me and Alex took a day off on Monday and it was like therapy. We went to Palatul Stirbey to take a walk, it was sunny and fresh outside, and just wonderful! No one else was there!!! (this was my favorite part- usually, during weekends or holidays every place on earth is packed with people). Then we stopped by IKEA (again, very few people- we almost didn't recognize the place without the hundreds of people buzzing around). The day was great! Oh, and not to mention we only had a four-day working week, which was awesome!
So my advise to you, whether you're working, or studying, is: Take a day off! You're worth it!
Have a beautiful, sunny weekend!
