Don't Wear Yourself Out!
With the holidays coming up, many are tempted to take on second and third jobs. Don't do it unless you absolutely have no other choice.
I learned this the hard way. I was working three jobs and going to school full-time. I didn't sleep, I wasn't eating properly, I lived in a constant state of stress, my friends and family were always angry with me because I was never there for anything, it really wasn't worth it. Sure, I had a little extra money, but the price was the relationships that were most important in my life. Not to mention the fact that I was constantly sick because I was overworking myself. It's not a good life to lead.
If you're going to take a second job, make sure you set aside enough time for yourself to recuperate or you'll become burnt out. A little R&R is important to our mental, physical, and emotional health - not to mention it keeps those we love from hating us! ;)
