How you can help yourself

If you think you may be a workaholic, there are practical ways to improve your quality of life. Here are a few ideas you can use right away:

-Take care of yourself. Workaholics are notorious for neglecting their health. You may not realize it, but your health is worth a million dollars! Think of how much money youíd have to pay to get a heart transplant, or for other major surgeries to repair your body. When you add it all up, youíll see you canít afford not to take care of yourself. Eating right and getting exercise are essential. Being healthy should be your first priority always, because without your health, nothing else matters.

-Another idea is to plan how much work you will do in one day and stick to it. That way youíll be less likely to go overboard because you donít know where to drawrepparttar line.

-Reserverepparttar 144097 time for friends and family. Whether itís Saturday and Sunday or Wednesday and Thursday, use your time off to spend time with your loved ones. Make a pact with yourself that your time off will only be spent withrepparttar 144098 ones you care about most- that means no co-workers!

-Last but not least, always make time for yourself. Take up a hobby if you donít have one already. There needs to be a time where you spend time appreciating you. Whether you like to hitrepparttar 144099 gym, play a sport, or curl up with a great book, there needs to be some you time. No matter what goes on at work, you need to have something to look forward to atrepparttar 144100 end ofrepparttar 144101 week. Even if itís just taking a bubble bath or renting your favorite DVD, I guarantee it will make a difference.
