Being A Workaholic

Working Hard

The Struggles & Solutions To Relax

I struggle with being a workaholic. I get involved in something and become so focused that I lose track of time, and ignore other things that need to get done. Like having lunch or going to bed.

I start working on a task and find myself hours later, sometimes into the very wee hours of the morning still working on it. It’s stressful. It affects your health when you do it day after day. And it’s simply not good for you.

But if I had a problem with a project, I’ve been known to get so focused that I can’t think of anything else until it’s resolved. I’ve had bosses tell me I have to go home and stand there until I pack up and leave. It was much worse than it is now. I talked to a therapist and tried to resolve the issue.

How can you change the negative patterns and turn your day around to be in the moment, enjoy the world around you and relax? The best way is to find a set of tools that offer rewards and incentives. I think I’ve done quite well overall, but it still creeps up from time to time.    I’ve found ways to help me avoid getting back into the old patterns. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Fool

The Fool

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t be taken for a fool. Someone close by is trying to distract your attentions so you don’t see what’s really going on. Be careful you don’t use your resources and tools like toys. This isn’t a game. It’s great to have fun and be silly once in a while. But there’s an appropriate time and place for play. Trust your instincts and stop the negative self talk that’s repeating what the manipulators are putting in your head. You know when to pay attention to the warning signs and when to let go and relax. Make sure you’re choosing the right time to accomplish both, when it’s best for you.

Additional Insight:

The one trying to manipulate you could be trying to get something past you without your knowledge. Or they maybe unreliable, a person who can’t be counted on, because they’re easily distracted from doing what they should be focused on. 

Don’t let the immaturity of others take you away from what you’ve been trying to build over the past few years or months. You’ve worked too hard to allow one mistake to tear it all down. And that could easily happen if you shirk your responsibilities or abuse the tools you’ve been given to use on this path.

Don’t listen to the guilt trip, the pleas to have fun, or the put downs that you don’t care about your friends or family. You know good and well those statements aren’t true. Someone who cares about you wouldn’t manipulate you in this manner in the first place. They would know how important your mission has been to change things for the better, and wouldn’t try to demean your efforts. So ask, are they really your friend? Continue reading
