You Spend Most Of Your Weekdays At Work, So Why Not Romanticize Your Career? Here’s How To Make Your Job Feel More Gratifying While Still Climbing The Corporate Ladder

Take breaks with intention

Something I struggle with is scrolling through my phone during my breaks, and I think most people can claim to do the same. It’s not very romantic or main character-like. Spending some time away from our phones by taking a short walk, chatting with a coworker, or slowly sipping on a warm mug of tea can leave us feeling more refreshed and ready to get back to work. Being offline gives your brain some rest, helping to reduce those feelings of being overwhelmed.

Set boundaries

A life of romance does not include taking on more tasks with your already heavy workload in order to accommodate others. Rather, that will quickly put you on the path toward a life of resentment. Before you agree to more work, stop and think about whether you can really handle yet another responsibility. When you can finish work at 5 p.m. on the dot, it allows you to have more time for self-care and hobbies, so it doesn’t feel like your job is your entire life.
