Many people end up more or less sacrificing their lives to their careers. Health is thrown out of the window in the pursuit of ever-greater productivity, and ever-longer working hours. As sleep is sacrificed, caffeine goes up to help you get through the day. Similar sacrifices are frequently made, consciously or not, with regards to such matters as spending time with loved ones, working out, indulging in hobbies and side projects, and so on.
While there’s certainly nothing wrong with being an ambitious person — ambition is, in fact, a great trait to have if you can balance it properly — it is often the most ambitious people who experience the greatest blows to their health and well-being as a result of working full-time, and turning full-time into over-time.
If this description hits a bit too close to home for you, and you feel like you might need to commit to a bit of introspection and consider making a change, here are some things you should do for your well-being while working full-time, in order to establish and maintain balance.
Anyone else going blonde - or blonder - for the summer? I love getting a brighter blonde during the warmer months. But, my roots are steadily growing out (my hairdresser says your hair grows faster in the summer!) and summer travel schedules certainly gets in the way of planning regular trips to the salon. Because I cannot pull off the ombre look to save my life and because the frizzy dry blonde apparently is not cute, what is a girl to do to keep her blonde ambitions in check this summer? I have my favorite picks for extending your blonde and keeping your hair looking freshly colored and smooth - even if you don't have a hair appointment on the agenda!
