"Rethinking my daily life - and letting go Learn about Cleansea’s inspiring story here: https://www.cleansea.co Cleansea IG: @_cleansea Overworking is a tricky issue, as the majority of us need to work for most of our lives. When I found myself overworking, I couldn’t simply leave my job, instead I had to change the way I used work as a way to deal with my emotions. In the past I have often struggled with keeping a healthy balance between work life and personal life. I find this balance not by working less (as that was not an option), but by making sure I make my free time truly free and value it. And this can be hard to do! In the past I saw myself as a classic workaholic, letting work be the way I manage all my anxieties and stressors. When I had free time I’d fill it with more work instead of enjoying it, simply because it was what I knew. I have changed and begun to challenge this way of thinking, but it is a journey that I am still on. It involves letting go of fear of the unknown, accepting that I cannot control the future, and developing a rich interior life.
