Outside of work that is. I don’t mean going home and switching on the TV; well, not all the time anyway. What I mean to ask is whether you have other interests that keep you occupied, that take your mind off work.
It could be something as simple as cooking, gardening, reading a book, going for a walk, meeting friends, watching movies (in movie theatres), taking care of a baby, talking to your wife (when the TV’s off!), volunteering, or whatever else interests you. Something, anything to get your mind off work.
In my experience, if you have other interests, they usually help you lead a balanced kind of life. If work consumes you all the time, you’ll burn out pretty quickly. Plus, when you have problems at work, if you have other interests, life won’t seem so bad and you’ll be able to deal with the problems much better.
Okay, got to go now. The season finale of American Idol is on.
