Work has always and will always be an important aspect of our lives. This is because it is the source of our daily bread. Without working it is hard to survive in the current economy of the world. This is why people strive to do different kinds of jobs to earn a living. But does this mean that our lives should stop because of work? Does it mean that we have to spend our entire day working without considering our health and wellbeing? Without contributing to society? Absolutely not!
Some kinds of jobs are very demanding and time consuming. Many people get to the office at 8am and leave as late as six in the evening, still carrying more work to do at home. Such jobs are well paying at time because of the amount of time spent on them but they don’t help your mind grow. The mind needs space and some rest to grow. You also have to find time to interact with other people to help your mind grow since life is not all about work.
There are several careers out there that can help your mind grow and allow you live a more fulfilling life. Even though some of them are not as glorious as you may think, people are making a living out of them and allowing their minds and communities to grow. Careers in engineering, medicine and law have been widely glorified as the best around the globe. In some cases however, these glorious and prestigious jobs do not give the same satisfaction as a job that help people on a day-to-day level.
- Aided supervisors: One job that provides you with an opportunity to grow your mind is working as a home health aide. This profession involves setting of work schedules and monitoring performances to ensure that patients get quality care. This job gives you a chance to help the patients get quality services and also allows you to develop your mind as you interact with the patients. The job is not as demanding as some other jobs and gives you time to develop other aspects of your life.
- Social Worker: Because of TV and the movies, people often think immediately of the Department of Social Services as being social workers. They certainly are, but the field doesn’t end there. Helping employees sift through their benefit options in office is social work. Being a camp counselor. Working with youth groups. If you have a passion for helping, a desire to uplift and are willing to give of yourself to make a difference, this can be one of the MOST rewarding career choices!
- Teacher: When you consider one of the most important, yet undervalued, positions in the workforce, look no further than teaching. You will obviously need a degree to pursue this field, but once you have it you will be responsible for molding the young minds of tomorrow. Having the chance to influence the betterment of a child’s life will give you a feeling like nothing else on Earth!
Work should not deny you an opportunity to live a good life. You can do good at work too…even if it will involves changing your career!
