Several years ago, I worked for a business process outsourcing company. Majority of the officers of the company were foreigners and they wanted us to espouse the “work-life balance” principle. They wanted us to work our best but, at the same time, live our best lives. And I agree.
Work is stressful as it is weekends are definitely needed for relaxation, for adventures, for roadtrips, for spontaneous travels and get-togethers. But years ago, while working for that company, I was not capable of being spontaneous on my weekends due to my financial situation that time. I was neck-deep in debts and there was never any extra to use for relaxation.
Fast forward to present time and I am much more capable of being random on my ways of de-stressing after work. I can now meet up with friends, go out with co-workers when I feel like it. I have also started seeking out natural remedies to help reduce stress, including CBD oil. While I ingest it orally, you can also use a vape pen or a dab rig to take CBD, and I find it to be great for both anxiety reduction and sleeplessness.
I can now go on adventures whenever possible. There are even days when I go on roadtrips with the family in some not-so-faraway places. Weekends are now definitely meant to be enjoyed. Just recently, our family went to another part of the country to celebrate my dad’s birthday. It didn’t matter if the airfare and accommodations were a bit stiff. We created memories for everyone to look back on when times are hard and when we grow older. We are planning another out-of-town very soon. And one more with my high school pals.
My principle nowadays? Carpe diem! Because I can, I am now living the best life possible!
