Balancing that Imbalanced Life

Published

on

We’re fresh grads, we work long hours, expected that we’re still young with no commitments at hand, so why not spend 12 to 13 hours in the office, right?

We’re told that this the time where we have got to build our careers before hitting our thirties, but we’re also told to ‘live a balanced life‘ which practically means ‘try and do everything.

So what are we really supposed to be doing?

After months of working, our desire for a balanced life increases which actually is a driver of chaos. Seeing that we try to thrive in business, maintain a healthy relationship, great physical and mental health and oh, travel every once in a while.

We are driven by passion, to have it all.

But when this passion becomes extreme, we find ourselves driven crazy, trying to balance it all.

It’s okay to prioritize your work, but there are certain consequences to keep in mind when doing so, first is your health, overworking and the lifestyle that goes with it can actually harm you, because of all the sitting and junk food. We barely find the time anymore to have a proper meal at home, so we end up snacking or ordering food.

Second, is your relationships, whether with your partner, your friends or family, relationships are important to us, and they require a lot of work to maintain.

Third is your own effectiveness, the longer your work hours, the more you’re likely to feel pressured and stressed out; which eventually will affect your productivity.

The key to balancing the imbalance in your life, is to try and find a middle ground, if you have no choice but stay long hours in the office, then embrace this imbalance and start building a healthier routine. You can take 15 mins off everyday to call someone you miss.

Also, bring to work homemade food and go on a healthy diet. Take advantage of every weekend, and try to use your free time wisely. And try and talk with your superiors on getting fixed hours, even if it’s every now and then.

Make sure that your life doesn’t revolve around your work, but rather for your work to be matching with your life.

If you are working too much and out of balance, something will eventually break.

Always keep that in mind.

Bela Plastic‘ campaign is an initiative launched in Dahab in an effort to protect the environment and marine life in Dahab.

President of the City Council of Dahab, Tarak El-Baz announced the launch of the initiative in early July, the campaign will include workshops and trainings to help raise awareness about the danger that plastic use impose on the marine life. These workshops will be targeted towards the hotels and restaurants, where plastic is most used.

Moreover, banners and warning signs will be placed across the city of Dahab as another way of spreading awareness and caution to tourists. What’s even more impressive is that volunteer tourism organizations and a number of dive centers will take part in the initiative by cleaning up the beaches of Dahab.

Such a remarkable step follows a decision that was taken three months ago by Governor Ahmed Abdullah to ban the single-use plastic in the Red Sea governorate. 

Another initiative was launched in South Sinai reserve called “Khali al-Bahar Yetnafes”, also targeting the hotels and resorts. Aiming to raise more awareness on the critical issue of single-use plastic.

We hope to see the results of these initiatives very soon, and for the outcome to be apparent in the next few months, especially with Dahab being a touristic destination for its environment and stunning marine life that attracts many tourists, preserving its sites is certainly a must.
