HomeSelf Relationship QuestionsHow to handle my workaholic self?
Roy Murray asked 2 years ago
I am a workaholic and it is impacting my health and social life. I know I need to cut back, but I don't know-how. Actually, I have 3 jobs at the moment which I believe I am handling well. But my friends tell me that I am a changed person and not for good. I don't go out with them as much as I used, I cancel plans, and my health is not good. What should I do?

If you're a workaholic, it's important to find a balance between work and the rest of your life. You cannot just work and not enjoy what life has to offer for you! Try scheduling in some "me time" every day, even if it's just for 30 minutes. During this time, you can do something that you enjoy and relaxes you, such as reading, taking a bath, or going for a walk. You should also make an effort to socialize with friends and family outside of work. This will help you de-stress and recharge so that you can be more productive when you're at work. Lastly, make sure to schedule regular checkups with your doctor to ensure that your health is not suffering because of your work habits.
