Have a job you at least like
This is obviously easier said than done, and takes a while to figure out. But if you hate your job, don’t just accept that. Don’t say, “That’s how life is.” Make it your priority, every day, to make efforts to get into a job you like. When you like your job, you don’t do things like over-drink and over-spend on weekends to try to salvage some feelings of joy before the week begins.
