I’ve been having a lot of discouragement lately. I am trying to get back into the swing of training and this time of the year I always feel overwhelmed by the amount of responsibilities I have. I’m going to list my daily time sinks
- Working full time in a semi physical job (retail manager, lots of running around)
- Taking 2 college courses for 9 units
- Spending time with my girlfriend and her family every night (board games, movies etc)
- Trying to get through SSBLV
Work has become a lot more stressful and busy since covid and I feel very drained some days.
My typical work schedule is around 9-6 and I wake up at 7:50 to get ready and leave (my commute is half an hour) and I go to bed around 11:30 or 12:00. I eat breakfast and lunch at work. Once home usually have dinner unless if I am riding. Some night are school heavy and that throws things off. Because of covid I have been living at my girlfriends house since May with her family, we do not want to risk seeing each other if we’re not in the same household. Her family has been very patient and I have no reason to feel uncomfortable. However it feels exhausting to not be in my own home.
I think this is what being an adult is like but I do not have kids and I cannot imagine how difficult that makes things. I am a kid at 21 and I am sure my plate is not loaded compared to most people but Id like to hear your words of advice.
Thanks for your time.
