There are a lot of you out there that work multiple jobs to make ends meet or to save for something special. In past generations, having a side hustle or a second (or third!) job was looked upon as an unfortunate circumstance, but not anymore! Multiple streams of revenue are a financial strategy utilized by many in today's society and it is more commonplace than not. Here are some ideas to bring into play if you work multiple jobs and find yourself stressed, tired, stretched too thin or overwhelmed... you got this!
Channel a positive outlook. Take a look over your week-to-week schedule and start to infuse purpose into how you think about the various things that fill your time. If you are bringing dread into each week, that will begin to drain your energy and make everything more difficult.
Instead of resenting a job for being time restrictive, it aids to your wellbeing to appreciate the job for the resources that it brings into your life. Identify on your schedule the commitments you have that summon negative thoughts. With this newfound awareness, you can take power in your life to assign a more beneficial way to think about it.
Take Action: A long chat with a good friend or a psychic reading is an excellent way to get an instant perspective shift!
Tap into a Support System
Even the strongest of us need support. No, one person can do it alone. Humans are a social species that benefit from being in the supportive company of others. In the spiritual exchange of abundance, it is important for flow to maintain a balance of giving and receiving. Undeniably, at some point your load will feel too heavy to bare alone… there will also be times those close to you will need you by their side. The ebb and flow of life are present even when you are pursuing your dream job! A support system is needed regardless of where you are in your career journey.

Balance Physical Energy
Keep endurance high. Multiple obligations demand a lot of energy. When your schedule is packed, the last thing you need is to navigate through all your tasks exhausted. Energy essentials include prioritizing sleep each day/night, drinking plenty of water, fueling your body with quality food and keeping physically active outside of work commitments. Although it may be a challenge at first, building a good physical foundation will help create more energy so that you can move effortlessly through whatever life throws at you.
Another great reason to prioritize a healthy foundation is that it reinforces self-worth and therefore increases your level of confidence. This newfound confidence will make you feel stronger and more secure as you move through the challenges that your schedule may present.
Maintaining a Work-Life Balance
It is important, to hold close to your heart, the reason why you’re working so hard in the first place. Without a meaningful purpose to drive you through, quality of life will eventually decline. Whether it’s spending quality time with loved ones, travel, or a hobby be sure to schedule time each day to focus on what makes you happy. A lot of times this is extremely counterintuitive and my even feel pointless, but it is not! You must refill your cup before you can give to anyone else. When time is stretched thin, often the first thing to get neglected is our own priorities. Set up daily reminders on your phone or place sticky notes around your home to help you channel your energy into what matters to you, it will refuel you emotionally.
Don’t Forget: Make sure to schedule things for yourself to look forward to on a regular basis!
