For those of you with more seasonal jobs, how do you deal with the ebb and flow of tasks? I have weeks where I’m challenged to fill 30 hours and some where I can work 60 and still feel like I have an incredibly long to do list. Some of this is just the nature of my industry and my job, so it can’t be avoided. My mental health takes a hit with the extreme stress followed by extreme boredom. Anyone else have this problem and an effective way to cope?
Self-care to me includes removing a source of worry or distress. If I’m self-conscious about something on my face and the worry about it taking up bandwidth better spent elsewhere. I am going to fix it and stop thinking about it. So yes, I’d call it self-care.
OMG, the Harvard Business Review podcast Season 3, Empisode 9 could be me! Overworked, doing the heavy lifting for the married employees while slaveing away day and night, forgoeing romance for the job and then getting $exueally harased on the job by a co-worker who is married! OMG, I thought I was special, but other pretty women are facing the same issues I do. Not that it is good, but at least we have strength in numbers when we all agree to resist men who objectify us and just want us to pull our cloething off so they can satisfy themselves with our bodies. FOOEY on that! We are not pincushions that are there for men’s pleasures. No way HOZE!
