Answer by Thomas Zerbarini:
STOP! Stop what you're doing and make a change.
We can all get trapped in a cycle of a boring and consuming life. The exciting thing for you is that you are seeing it and wanting to change.
The brief overview you supplied in your question is a recipe for disaster. The questions you need to answer yourself is why have you chosen this way of life? What is motivating you to continue this way?
Look inside yourself and find what you like to do, what makes you happy what interests you? From there, develop a plan to spend more time doing those "fun" things.
Make some positive fun goals to accomplish. Things you like or would like to do. They don't have to be big or long term goals, you can have a variety of short, medium and long term goals. Map your steps to accomplishing your goals so you can track and see your progress. This will motivate you and keep you on track. Visualize yourself daily accomplishing those steps and the final goal; this will give you motivation each day to keep on task.
There are so many exciting things to do in life. We all need to find a way to balance our work and play. Look inside yourself, decide what you want and need to change and make a change. You will find that examining the fun things you like to do and planning on how to accomplish them is fun in itself especially when you write your goal steps out and even create a journal where you can cut and past pictures that help you visualize yourself accomplishing what you set out to accomplish.
