Scheduling Down Time
Even workaholics need down time. It’s important to schedule and be realistic about the downtime you need. Most people these days are tethered to their devices/computers. This is both unhealthy and unproductive. Find a way you can walk away and enjoy yourself from time to time.
If you are the kind of person that can keep your head down for hours at a time then go for it. Be sure to get out of the house in the evening or on weekends and enjoy your time off. If on the other hand you would rather work longer days and have breaks throughout, then work that way. The key is to work how you want. Just be sure to schedule downtime so your batteries get recharged.
The most important aspect of down time is to truly be away from work and obligations. Scheduling downtime is so important. It allows you to truly relax without worrying about what you are missing.
