Maybe I’m bad at being single, or maybe I’m just comparing my life to others, and I know that isn’t healthy, but I have this habit, and It is hard to get out of it. I work all day, and I give my Job 200% every day. So when I am finished, I tend to be wiped out. My habit is to just come home and watch something on TV, or watch a movie, or browse the internet or YouTube or Social Media. It helps me chill out.
lately though I have been feeling like I wish I had friends who would go out with me after work to hang, play frisbee, get ice cream or get drinks or play games. As far as I can tell most people do the same thing I do, especially if they are single, I’m sure my friends with spouses and kids think, ya lucky you. There is something really great about coming home after a long day of people and crazy to a quiet home where you know you can just relax and decompress. I am grateful for sure, and at this point I have no intention of making any big strives to change that.
So, no spouse, or kids to attend to when I get home its just me. I find that I am pretty unmotivated to even cook for myself sometimes. It is so much easier to just pick something up quick after I get off work, though it is probably more healthy and frugal if I cook.
This week I decided that I needed to do something different. I decided I would forgo TV, and staring at my iPad or iPhone, in favor of listening to a book or doing a puzzle or spending a bit more time making dinner. I also have gone to bed a little earlier which isn’t a bad thing sense I need to catch up on some sleep. Ultimately I think it’s about putting intentional new habits into my after work routine.
