Every new day, the precious and most beautiful maiden, the goddess and queen (that being you), rushes to work, and then back home to all the daily troubles and routine. The routine is the worst enemy of happiness; boredom is worse than being in a bad and compromising situation. We advise you to stop and take a look around! Maybe, while you’ve been chasing success at your workplace, your partner started to distance him/herself from you.
I will be honest – I am not a genius in terms of efficiency, and I look with envy at people who have everything structurally and clearly and do everything calmly, step by step. Not so long ago, I was hanging out with my friend, boasting about how organized I am. I said, “Look – I am a systematic person, I have all the things noted on my phone.” And he said to me, “Organized people have everything figured out, and they don’t really need phones, they remember everything.” And he is right – I am not an organized person. The routine of work consumes many of us, so we forget about our families, friends, and even simple joys of life.
Recently, I woke up from a five-day business trip and realized that after all of it, I wasn’t able to stand up; I was extremely tired. The cycle consumed me, and even traveling abroad didn’t help. From 24 hours a day, 10 are spent at work, and 8 are spent sleeping, so we are left with only 6. And even then, 1 or 2 hours are wasted on traveling to and back from work. That is 4 hours left. 4 hours to be a human, a family member, to do your hobbies, and to be yourself. So today, I will talk about some tips on how to cope with a tight schedule.
Make yourself happy, then save the world
In no case, and I repeat, in no case should you enter the cycle in which you fall unconscious every time you come home, not being able to do anything. This is the main offender of happiness; in the long run, it damages your psyche and joy. I remember when I discovered SPA treatment in Thai salons for myself; my good friend said that it would be stupid to spend money on such crap; it would be better to invest this money, buy food, clothes, and all that. But as it turned out, it was these small joys for a woman, such as a massage, manicure, spending time at coffee shops, visiting movie theatres, and etc. that make the world brighter, more positive, and, most importantly, easier. The work is not as tiresome when you have something like that in your life. Challenge the routine and experiment with new things so that pastime becomes more of a rewarding experience.
A man should be glad to see you
I mean, we are all human here; some less; some more, but the fact remains true. When a man comes homes bored and tired, when he doesn’t want to do anything together and just wants to fall asleep or something like that – such behavior is a rational reaction to the routine of a working man. How do you fight his boredom? This rule works mainly for long-term relationships, but here, we have some casual relationships rules. Be sure to check them out! Enrich his experiences of coming back home. Cook different dishes, dress differently, play different music, watch different TV shows, offer to do something together, from going outside to some nice restaurant to doing some new things in bed. Do whatever excites your man the most. The routine, by its definition, is something that doesn’t change, something mundane that does not provoke even the slightest desire of a brain to react to the outside factors. We’ve all been through this; a person would rather skip time than to go through a routine. So yeah, make it so that every time that he opens the door, something new and unusual happens, without going over the boundaries of rationality, of course.
