Rule 1 Sunday is a rest day, start your week refreshed.

Step 2 spend a week without tv/videogames/consumption device of choice, you will get bored but being bored is important because it forces you to cover up with something new to do once you have found this new thing you can get back to media consumption but if you are never bored you miss out on the creativity it brings.

My train of thought doesn't follow your road rules and if you don't like it you don't have to fly with me.

I don't know about this, you say "being bored is important because it forces you to cover up with something new to do" but then when I try this, I just end up sitting in my chair, looking up the ceiling asking myself "what to do, what to do...", then when I finally decide to do something I just end up feeling like I'm wasting my time, but it doesn't really makes sense because I wouldn't be doing anything anyways, and it's not like I'm not having fun, but in the end, it just feels worthless, like every time I do something, I feel like I should be doing something else. I don't think I'm depressed either, I would even say I'm happy most of the time, but it's like I can't appreciate it. It's like I'm searching for something and I don't know what. Maybe I should just choose a thing and focus all my attention on it, and just don't think too much about it. Maybe I'm just thinking too much, actually.

Anyways, sorry for dumping my ramblings here, have a good day man!

It's an interesting thought, feeling like you are wasting your time when rationally you know you are doing more than you would otherwise. As much as I hate the term FOMO (fear of missing out) is a real problem with the modern world where everyone can so easily show off their highlight wheel. Sorry I don't have much of an answer but if nothing else sounds like you aren't doing too badly in the overall scheme of things, keep searching and if you do find something never let anyone tell you it isn't good enough. If you can become a best selling author writing crappy twilight fanfic in this world nothing is ever not good enough.

Do stuff after work. It can be going drinking with your buddies, getting involved with a sport, finding a hobby that other people like doing on weeknights, taking classes that you're interested in. You're only at work for 1/3 of the day (assuming 40 hour work week), and you probably only need 8 hours of sleep. So use those extra 8 hours to the fullest.

Maybe the secret is to actually spend those 5 days of the week doing something you like, or that is fulfilling. I don't think it's ever too late to change your career/work/project if it means improving your happiness and quality of life. And even if you can't change your job, then fill your free time with something meaningful to you. A hobby, adopt a pet, volunteer, something. This question reminded me of this picture. Find your purpose, or at least get as close as you can!

I feel no matter what you do for work ...it still ends up being work. Not all is the same level. But work is work.

I can see how it would be tiring to do any work for too much. We definitely need weekends to get away from it occasionally. But hopefully work is something you can enjoy in reasonable doses.

Yes but you can enjoy work. Hiking is work and so are many other hobbies that people enjoy. The real trick is to find a career where you get to enjoy the work.

Yes, years back i ran a hobby shop (games and comics). It was great fun for almost 10 years before it turned into a job and drained all the fun out of my hobbies. It's taken almost 15 years since it closed for me to return to the hobby as a past time. I keep my work and play separate now.

Totally agree. The days at work where I'm working on challenging things is a thousand times better than those where I'm waiting on assignments and spend my day doing essentially nothing.

  1. I have a job that I don't hate, coworkers who I like, and an easygoing boss.

  2. I usually work swing shift, so I'm not in a rush when I wake up. I often have time to screw around, work on a project, or even go see a movie before I start my shift.

  3. My "weekends" are actually on weekdays, so I rarely have to deal with traffic and can actually enjoy my days off.

What allows me to live like this? I work inside a fuel station kiosk just outside the main store. I'm usually by myself and often have time to catch up on my reading. On the rare occasion that I interact with a pissed-off customer, I do so from behind bullet-proof glass, armor plating, and reinforced concrete. It's pretty great.

as a retired person with health issues i find that my attitude towards weekends has done a 180. i used to look forward to the weekend after a long week. now however i have come to hate the weekends. it's too crowded to go out on the weekends. i feel that because i can do my shopping during the week it is not fair to everyone else to add myself to the crowds on the weekends. stuck at home i watch a lot of TV but the weekends suck for TV. ...bottom line if you don't work, the weekends suck.

Sounds like you're under a lot of stress. First thing is to figure out what's causing it and then develop a plan on how to fix what you can, then what to do about what you can't fix.
