I had become depressed and bored of my life and, as I'm a solution-focused person, I decided to do something about it. I didn't want to talk to someone about why I was depressed, I just wanted to look to the future and find out how I could get out of it. So, I decided to see a life coach.
My life coach enabled me to see things differently and opened my eyes to how I was focusing solely on my job, rather than all of the other things I had in my life. I also started running as a hobby and this allowed me to get outside, which is something I had been missing working in an office all day.
I realised how much more there is to life than how I'd been living it and I think this was the reason for my depression and boredom. I now make sure I see friends and family on a regular basis, find new hobbies, look after my body by eating well and exercising. My job is no longer the sole focus in my life.
