Tuesday, November 24
I've talked to a couple of people lately that have decided to make big changes in their lives. They both quit jobs that were making them miserable. One has a new job already, the other is looking. They both had well established careers that paid well, but they weren't happy.
While we all know having extra money makes a lot of things easier, it doesn't buy happiness and there is no amount of money that can make a terrible job better.
For some reason, most of us think changing jobs or careers is off the table. An impossible task that we won't even approach. But why?
I feel like I talk to a lot of people every week that hate their jobs. I also think that if there was anything else in our lives that we spent so much time hating, we'd stop doing it immediately.
I think your job should be treated just the same.
I'm not telling you to go to work tomorrow and quit, but as we approach the new year it's time to evaluate where we are and think about what makes us fulfilled and happy.
Hopefully, you're not stuck in a job you hate, but if you are, don't be afraid to change. A terrible job can lead to physical and mental health problems. Exercise can help fight these things, but why not get rid of the cause?
If you truly want to be healthy and exercise regularly, and the only thing preventing you from making that happen is your job, then you should take a hard look at what you're doing. Really think about your priorities. If your health is a priority for you and you're job is making you unhealthy, it's time to reevaluate.
