I believe that the plainer you make your priorities for yourself, the more likely you are to achieve them.
If the goal is feeble or iffy - there's no way you'll achieve it AND make it stick.
Do you have anyone who can help you to "cast off" the work stuff - apart from close family? Sometimes it helps to have a "rant mate" - just so you can download outwith the home place and home people.
I know I can rely on my DH for help, but only when I get him properly sorted out - and that can raise as much stress as I'm trying to get rid of.
Whereas, there are a few very special friends I've made here on SP, and on another site called
FlyLady, where I know I can go and vent, sometimes with a vengeance!
There are loads of friends here where I can have an everyday vent, nobody comes back and is judgmental outwith what you can cope with.
If you want a rant mate - le6 me know, and I'll cope with it. And maybe even manage to send some messages back - which may or may not be helpful, but you can let me know once you've calmed down and thought about things
