Step 4: Keep Yourself Occupied
As part of this endeavour, I have realised the importance of keeping yourself occupied. When I was little my parents made sure that after school, I had extra curricular activities such as language school, dancing, music classes, aerobics. At a time, I thought this was just to make sure that I do not hang with the wrong gang and get mixed up in something. Well, it is the same when you are grown up except you have to keep you own schedule up to date.
In light of the recent events and in attempt of becoming a better person, friend, colleagues and simply in an attempt to a make over of my lifestyle, I have started to find ways to keep myself occupied and active in more than one ways.
Why do I think it is important?
Well first of all, when your mind is occupied, it has less time to dwell on things and to indulge in any negative thoughts or overthinking. For some people, work takes priority - their main occupation is job and they work 24/7. Although, I am not supportive of taking your work home approach, it is definitely one way to keep your mind off things. Other people, choose sports and live in the gym after work - sports helps to release all energy and clear your mind be it by running by the lake or by simply going to the gym. Some others may sign up for extra courses or workshops after work to enhance their qualifications and focus on learning new things.
