Signs Your 9-5 Is Soul Crushing

Today, I want to talk to you about something that I think is really important. In fact, it's a huge part of why this blog even exists. I want to talk to you about your work situation.

A sad fact: we've all had jobs we don't like.

(If, by some chance, you haven't had a job you didn't like, please tell me your secrets!)

Now, don't get me wrong, it's natural to have a period of time where you work for a job you don't particularly love. Sometimes you just need the work and you gotta do what you gotta do.

Work is stressful, that's the very nature of it. But when does it cross the line from being just a job you dislike to being something that is considered "soul crushing?"

4 Tips to Help You Achieve Your Goals

One thing you need to know about me: I love setting goals.

Seriously, it might be one of my favorite things.

I love having something to work towards. And when I can cross a bunch of items off a checklist? Oh man, that is the best feeling, I absolutely love it.

Unfortunately, I also love setting big goals. And most of the time, they are completely unrealistic ones.

So, as much as I love setting goals, it always takes a good bit extra work to actually achieve them.

Simple Ways to Practice Self-Care at Work

Work is stressful.

That's a sad fact of life.

Even at the most chill jobs, there can still be some stressful times. There will always be long days that leave you exhausted and wanting to curl up on the couch and binge Netflix for 13 hours.

I may have a little experience in that... 

We all have those days. When work gets tough, I usually wait until I get home and then I spend some time practicing self-care with a few of my favorite ways to unwind.

But what if I can't wait to get home?

6 Simple Ways to Stay Motivated

Recently I found myself in a rut. I was getting nothing done. Absolutely nothing. My house became a disaster area, my pile of to-do lists went untouched, and I spent most of my time staring at Netflix for hours... Not actually watching anything, though. It takes me half of forever to actually find something I want to watch. And usually by the time I think I've found something, it's gotten too late and I'd rather just go to bed. As you can tell, I live quite the exciting life.

Staying Productive: The Power Hour Method

I am not good at being productive. Sure, there are days when I get tons of stuff done, but most of the time I fall into the time-sucking trap that is Netflix. I am a sucker for Netflix binges. But it's not just that. The second I get home from work and sit down, any and all motivation I had to do anything disappears. After a few days of not getting anything done at home, I typically find myself being completely overwhelmed by my constantly growing to-do list. At that point, there's only one way I can get myself motivated to do anything: the power hour.

Simple Ways to Practice Minimalism at Work

Minimalism is easy. Well, the concept of practicing minimalism at home is. You can toss whatever you don't need or even whatever you just don't like anymore. Everything is up to you. They're your things and therefore can do whatever you want with them. Easy. The tricky part is that the more you tidy up at home, the more your minimalist mindset it going to overflow into your time at work. Unfortunately, minimalism doesn't work quite the same way at the office. You can't just toss everything out and start over. Paperwork needs to be kept. Files need to be saved. In my case, example crafts need to be kept and elaborate program decorations and supplies need to be stored.

Easy Ways to Deal with Digital Clutter

You've embraced minimalism. You've spent time decluttering your physical possessions and focusing on what things you want to allow in your life. So now what? What's the next step? Well, there are lots of possible next steps, but today we'll take a look at digital clutter. It can be difficult to even think of digital clutter as an issue. It doesn't take up any space like our physical possessions do, you can't see it piling up when you walk into your home. It's easy to overlook. But dealing with your digital clutter can be just as important as dealing with the physical clutter.
