Surely you work in the daily environment, it is a world that does not stop if you feel that you have to have time for yourself, look for another type of work, it is impossible to escape from that.

When I was more in the news I dedicated myself to training passionately in the gym, it was the only thing that kept me sane in all that time, now I am an editor and my pace is slower and I have more time for myself.

Hobbies, hobbies, hobbies. You are already turning your passion into a career. You need something that brings you joy that is disconnected from your ability to put food on the table.

Making sure there is enough time for self care is so important. Go for walks, get enough sleep, make time for friends, and enjoy your hobbies.

I know it will ramp up some but I feel like there is no way it will be enough to fill 40 hours. What do I do?

Considering eventually moving to recruiting, but couldn’t leave to do it for $60k.
