I work about eight hours per day, but i spend more two hours to go and return to home. Every day i try to reserve some hours for my family and things that i like to do, like some exercise, readins, etc.
Is very important for me these leisure moments.

Hi!!!

I work to live. Sometimes i have the impression that i live to work, when something is wrong or a work is behind schedule. I see more and more people working a lot, win well but are not happy. We have that reconcile both the lives, because the money gain must used for live and don't for cure medical issues caused by work.

Hello Hugs,

When we talk about money, the verb that we use is to earn.
e.g. They earn a lot of money or they are well paid.
Correct me if i'm wrong.

Thanks
Hello Everyone!
Of course we have Work to Live, But sometimes you will face some situations in your Job that will force you to stay it a little bit more as well, however, this is not a decision that you have to do everytime, only when you arrive after the maximum time, for example, otherwise, i don't see any reason to you stay more than the limit time.
Nowadays I'm a student, but also I have a part-time Job. Sometimes I notice I'm living to work/study and then I realize it's not so simple to make things right. I think everyone would like to have more time to live instead to working, but we live in a difficult world, it's not easy to get basic things we need daily. The real problem happens when we forget our humanity and just live to build a better world while we forget our personal world. There are many ways to we remember important things, it can be reached in religion, philosophy, relationships, even in science... But the main way to do that is by self-understanding. We need understand what's be human then we can try to imagine a better way to live.
I've been living for work so long as I can remember, and i've just noticed this fact with the help of my psychoterapist. I became a angry guy and sometimes a bit moody, and the fault was all mine at all. Now I'm starting a self challenge to let go of this ambicious crazy and try to raise old habits to improve my leisure time. Let's see what comes up!
I study to work in future. However I always think how will be my life. I don't want to live to work, life is more than just working. I intend write books, drawing and traveling around the world (at least where is possible). I have many projects.
So good luck all , don't spend your life just to getting money and material goods, it is important but the most important is living in peace and enjoying your life, you live just one once. Be creative! 8-)
