The Daily Grind - Is Now The Time to Look to Life Overseas? (and not just because of Brexit)

The daily grind is a familiar phrase to many of us with all the negative connotations that go along with it.  If you Google "What is the definition of the daily grind?" you get a variety of suggestions (as you always do with Google).

They include:-

1.         (idiomatic) The difficult, routine, or monotonous tasks of daily work.

As soon as he has the money to retire, he plans to leave the daily grind and travel more.

The boring mundane parts of everyday life.

A daily monotonous job or task.

Being caught in slow moving commuter traffic.

One's daily responsibilities, especially a job

One's daily work routine, especially when it is tiresome.

I'm so thrilled to be off next week-I really need a break from the daily grind.

n. the tedious pattern of daily work. 

Well, it's Monday. Time to start another week of the daily grind.

 [someone's] everyday work routine.

I'm getting very tired of the daily grind. When my vacation was over, I had to go back to the daily grind.

One of the recurring themes in the daily grind appears to be your job or daily work routine, often accompanied by words like monotonous and mundane. If you use the phrase or find yourself in this position have you asked yourself why?

Finding a career path that makes us feel satisfied and successful isn't necessarily easy. It's not something they teach us in school, which makes the journey that much more challenging.

We spend one-third (or more) of our days at work. Work defines us as people, i.e., when we aren't happy at work, other areas of our life suffer. Yet more than 70 percent of workers say they don't feel satisfied with their career choices.

How many times have you heard about people who end up sick, depressed, unhappy, etc. because they're unhappy with their careers? What if they liked their jobs instead?

Another part of the daily grind is often the commute to and from work. Commuting to work is a normal part of everyday life, but with an ever-increasing number of commuters and an ever-decreasing number of train carriages and bus services, the daily journey is becoming more chaotic.

Delays, cancellation and cramped conditions are becoming the norm, with many unable to get on their train to or from work due to limited space and reduced carriages. The ever-increasing commuter chaos is leaving people irritated and deflated, which can ultimately have an impact on both physical and mental health.

So what if you were offered the chance of a job that not just utilises your skills but also widens your experience? What if that job allowed you to live by the sea or in a substantially rural area but still be able to get to the city centre within 20 minutes?
We haven’t even mentioned the quality of life (in the Top 10 countries according to the OECD index), the education system (in the World Top 20), the weather (40% - 60% more sunshine than London or Manchester) or the multi-cultural make up of the country (almost a quarter of the population identify as immigrants).

And the best part of it all, not a single mention of Brexit in the news for days if not weeks on end.
