It is typical that when one has work it takes one's energy so that one gets stuck to a daily routine without much freedom of changing it. Then the routines take one's forces and if something unexpected comes one's way there is no way to avoid a collision with it or to soften the collision with wisdom and freedom of movement.
But if you do not just go to work but keep a routine of exercising yourself in varied ways, you can choose in which way you meet the obstacles on your way and so life becomes easier. You need something like your job's strain, just a little bit but it is needed to make you flexible on that area of life. And you need hobbies with lots of variation and new kinds of fun challenges to make you flexible and ready to meet what life brings to you on all areas of life.
It is like a person stiff from too much sitting compared to a person who has taken the time to stretch and exercise a little bit in varied ways so as to be able to meet physical challenges well.
