Even though plenty of people truly enjoy the work they do for a living, there are many people – even many of these same people who enjoy their job – who wish that they had more free time than they have; of course, if you have a set amount of time off each week, there is not exactly a way for you to make this time last longer; however, there are a number of things that you can do in order to make your time off feel more stretched out!One of the best ways to make your time off last longer is to have a plan of what you will do with your time off; when you approach your time off without a plan in place, you are likely to end up wasting plenty of this time, but when you have a plan for how you hope to use your time off, you will be able to do a lot more with it – which, in turn, will make it feel like you have a lot more of it! Another issue many people deal with, as far as their time off goes, is that they end up focusing so much on work in their thinking – even during their time off – that they never truly feel like they have had an opportunity to take a break; get in the habit of consciously switching your train of thought from “work” thinking to “away from work” thinking, as this will allow you to fully immerse yourself in and enjoy the time away from work you have. @@ADSENSE@@. And taking the time to have fun with others – and taking the time to have fun doing things you enjoy doing – is one of the best ways of all to stretch out your time off; when you spend time having fun with others and having fun with the things you enjoy doing, your time off will leave you with much more to look back on as you return to work – which will make it feel like it lasted a lot longer than it did. As you learn to maximize your time away from work, your time at work will be much more rewarding as well – and in the long run, this will all add up to a much more rewarding life overall! @@ADSENSE@@.
