Recovering workaholics unite! Nearing burnout from the job, I realized I had to get my life under control. I had to stop my workdays blurring into weekends and the long nights in the office with the cleaning crew, only to have the vacuum cleaner remind me of how messy my own home was – because I was always in the office! A friend told me about the Leisure Time Advocacy, a group that offers tips and encouragement to bring more balance in your life. I checked out their website http://www.myleisuretrip.com/en/mlt/lta/ and started to follow some of their suggestions.
I now schedule time for fun, just like any other work-related meetings, and I’m much happier for it. I’d love to hear other tips for bringing more balance into your life.
