Life when you were still in college or a student and life when you already have a job are two different situations you need to balance out. Life even gets harder, especially you already have a family of your own. Can you tell that you have a wonderful balance between your work and your private life?
Below is the list of how to tell you are in great suffering of work-life stress.
1.) Body pain
Lie to yourself but your body will not tell you to lie. If you are overwork your body is the one that will tell you “Hey! I need to rest!” You keep on suffering from chronic headaches, neck pain, shoulder aches these are the signs that you need to take a look at your own health or your self-care routine. Pay attention to this because it is way more affordable to pamper yourself than to pay those hospital bills which can be a never-ending payment if you have some serious issues already.

2.) Mood swings
You are constantly changing your moods and most often you are wearing thin which means you are angry most of the time. You are running out of patience with every single thing that you will do and your happy hormones are at its lowest level already. Sometimes you give your worst reactions to every detail that concerns you and you lack socialization manners already.

3.) Relationship is shaky
Spending 8-10 hours at work and the rest will be consumed by travel, sleep, eating but how about your time for yourself, for your family and friends? You missed the family day every rest day since you will be either spending it overtime at work or sleeping the whole rest day. You also missed the class reunions or maybe just the friends’ reunion a couple of times already because again you have to do the overtime work for your company. Remember that this situation might cause you some big troubles in the future if you keep on doing it.
4.) Glued to your phone
You cannot live a second without your phone on your side. Keeping yourself always on to date with your emails because you might be late on responding these emails. Even when you are already at home and you are not already responsible or obligated to respond quickly to those emails and reports sent to you but you still choose to leave the conversation with your family on air and respond immediately to those emails and reports. Be mindful because of this may be the reason for the shakiness or unstableness relationship that you have.
5.) Everything is a mess
Whether it is your career life or your private life, everything seems to be a mess. You cannot put everything right or even just a single of them. No matter how you push yourself to be in the right direction you are still lacking a certain thing in order to place everything on its proper placement. It may be your desk at work or your bedroom, either of this two is in constant jumbled almost most of the time.
It is good to push your capabilities to its limit but does not push too hard though. Sign up for our 3 days free Costa Rica beach vacation contest.
