1. Do not fall into the trap of believing you have no other choices in life.
Don’t keep doing what you are doing, and make the rut a little deeper each day.
2. Do have hobbies and fun activities.
Laugh, enjoy what you are doing, or find something that might give you the energy to start your day with enthusiasm.
3. Do learn to make yourself happy.
Don’t do the following: complain a lot, wear a furrowed brow, rush to everything you have to do, spend very little time with old friends, and be afraid to reach out to new people. Don’t stay isolated or you will feel more alone and you will wind up staying at the office, working longer hours.
4. Do get help if you are miserable.
As an intelligent, accomplished person, you probably think that you should know how to figure out your own problems, right?
Stop and realize that if you were ill, you would have to make time to take every measure to get well.
Why not take the time BEFORE you might feel sick and heal your withered spirit? Make a pact with someone that you will meet them for a dance class, gym workout, bicycling break, rock climbing experience, volley ball, basketball, Frisbee in the park, or a game of horseshoes. Do just one fun activity outside of your normal routine and notice the difference in your energy.
