The Real World-New Job New Life

 

 

New Job New Life

 

The majority of college students are not prepared for the real world, even the most serious students with the best education for the career of their choice is not prepared for their first job and new life. The majority of college students first job often is not even in their career field, even the ones which do find employment in their career field is not what they are expecting. Usually your first job out of college is an entry level position, these positions are much lower than students are expecting. Many students are not able to live on their own with their first full-time position out of college, for the ones who do go it alone must have very good budgeting skills.

Stay Positive

 

Staying positive is a must during this adjustment in your life, your new life will be full of both excitement and disappointment at the same time. Being prepared is your best asset, acceptance and willing to adjust as you need will keep you focused and grounded. In the case your entry level position is low pay to start you will need to be prepared, people who can understand their wants and needs will experience much less stress and anxiety during this time. Living expenses versus your income will determine your budget plan, living within your budget is a must otherwise you are going to be causing yourself much emotional stress.

Acceptance

 

Being aware things will be a little tough for a while will help a great deal easing your emotional stress, often when you are disappointed unexpectedly it hits you very hard. For most college students their first position out of college is not what they expect, what can even cause you more stress is the fact you underestimated the high cost of living. Just the main living expenses can add up very quickly, most people underestimate these expenses until they receive their first month bills. Accepting you might not be able to do all the things you did as a college student is a must, many things you desire might have to wait for a while and you must be able to accept and deal with this to survive.

Stress & Anxiety

 

Stress and anxiety will be expected with this major change in your life, how you react will determine how you get through it. There is no way to avoid either of these experiences, they are a part of life. This is where your relaxation and coping skills will be more important than ever, being able to deal with your stress starting a new job is very important. Juggling your work life and your personal life will be more of a challenge for you now,  a healthy balance of work and play is a must now for you to remain emotionally healthy.

Personal Life Management

 

Whatever happens everyone must have a personal life to be healthy and happy, living on low budget does not mean you give up your personal life. Of course being realistic some changes will have to be made to stay within your budget. Adding new interests and hobbies which are free or low cost will be a must, look at this as not giving up anything but adding new adventures in your life. Since you will be working full-time now, time management will be even more important than ever. Healthy relationships are very important for you to remain emotionally healthy, keeping in touch with old college friends will be a huge mood booster. Don’t beat yourself up, stay motivated keep up with your meditation and yoga.

 

Mediation & Yoga

 

Faith

 

The secret to life is having faith in yourself, learning to let things go is something many anxious people struggle with. That is where your meditation will enrich your life, once you master this skill you will be using if naturally. Anytime you have a few minutes you are able to use this skill to ease your mind and your anxiety,  I find taking a few minutes when feeling fatigued and meditating restores my mental energy, it allows me to become more creative and focus. Yoga gives your body new life, often in the late afternoon when most people are hitting the caffeine for energy I am doing yoga.  These are what has helped me recover from severe anxiety and depression in the past, soon as I feel anxiety starting to take a hold on me I use these techniques with a passion and depression has been a thing of the past.

I have had such a turn around of my life with meditation and yoga, please give these a try. At least the meditation, our emotional health is so important for us to be happy and enjoy our life. Stress and anxiety is becoming wide spread in our society, even many children are experiencing problems today. Avoid medications as much as possible, go for alternative health natural remedies.

  1. Most kids coming out of college aren’t prepared for the real world. They are or have been, up to that point, been given most things by their parents, and they are in for a rude awakening when college is over and they are on their own. They don’t know how to handle their finances and get into a lot of trouble with credit cards. Most can’t find a job in their field of study, and if by some miracle they do, it is not at all what they were expecting. Again, they are used to just being handed things, so struggling to find a job, or not getting the job they wanted or getting a job and not having it be everything they dreamed it would be are realities that are like bombshells for them. Most of all they don’t understand that bills come before going out or getting that newest and best phone or video game or whatever it is that they want at the time. So they buy what they want and then don’t have the money to pay the bills and wonder where all their money went. Budget really isn’t in their vocabulary, but learning how to do so is a long process for them.

    1. Thank You,

      I appreciate your comment, we all go through the learning stages when we are very young just starting out in the real world. Everything you say is true for some students, but some do work their way through college which I feel is a big bonus for them to be able to budget their money after college.

  2. This is a great guide for those stepping out of the student world and into the real world! I truly wish I would have had something like this back in my day to be able reference to. Having faith in my own self was one of my major struggles but with meditation I was able to get through major challenges in life with confidence!

    Great read!

    1. Thank You Benjamin,

      Mediation does wonders for our minds, amazing how 10 minutes or more can revive our mental creativity and restore our mental energy. I take mini meditation breaks throughout my day, I find this to help me be more productive and have more brain energy.

  4. Wow, I never really thought about this topic. I found it very interesting and true. My sister would always call home complaining and stressing out to my mother, and father. This is a good thing that a lot of college students should read. I wish my sister could of had this, instead of stressing for a long time. Thank you for all of the information.

    1. Thank You Nick,

      Teens have more stress in their lives than ever before, many adults can not know the stress they are going through. College is a very stressful time for teens, they have some peer pressure with sex and drugs plus their studies which is more than enough stress for anyone.

  5. That the was a very good article full of good advice for young minds entering into their field. I guess a lot depends on which field they chose has a lot to do with the amount of stress they encounter. I worry about our youth getting into too much debt trying to get a start instead of taking things in stride.
    I like your approach on this subject teaching meditation and mind control as one of the ways to cope. You have a good mission started with this and I hope many follow and pursue your advice.

    Great job!

    1. Thank You Forrest BB Clem,

      I am always interested in what my readers like and dislike about my articles, I have been pushing the meditation simply because it works and it has made a dramatic difference in my own recovery from anxiety and depression.

  6. What a great article!

    I’ve been facing issues like these myself! Not only me, actually, but most of my recently-graduated colleagues.
    It’s really a comfort to find well-written articles such as yours giving some easy-to-use tips on how to ease it all.
    Real world after college indeed is harder and quite not what we expect it to be while we’re students.

    Thanks and keep with the good work!

    1. Thank You Joao Inglez,

      I wish you much luck in your future, the real world is not an easy place to live at times. Stay focused on your goals and dreams, use my tips to cope with your stress and you will reach your dreams in time.

  7. All that you wrote about here isn’t only good for college students entering a new independent life, but for many adults. I can’t stress enough how important having a positive attitude is, along with meditations (any meditations, really) and life management (not only personal, but your life in general).

    Failing to remember about those can be truly disastrous to a person’s well-being and happiness. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and ideas – and for the excellent quotes you included 🙂

    1. Thank You

      I appreciate you comment and agree with you all you have shared, I was focusing on college students since they are new to experiencing so much stress.

      Jeff
