Take A Break From “Eustress” and Don’t Bring Your Briefcase To The Beach
Wed May 20th 2015
Take a break! Even if you love what you're doing. You still need to rejuvenate. And remember, taking work to a vacation "just in case" will only distract you and occupy your mind.
Take A Break From "Eustress"
You've heard of distress, but psychologists warn that we're also worn out by "eustress"—extended periods of being "up" and "on." If you want to stay healthy, creative, and productive, you have to give your brain and body regular breaks from every kind of stress.
Plan some Free Days—even just one!—when you can just be, with no demands on your time and attention. When you come back, you'll have so much more to offer.
Don't Bring Your Briefcase To The Beach
Your brain is a smart rat and will find that cheese of distraction no matter where you hide it. The only—only—way to rejuvenate your mind is to completely take away the possibility of work-related thoughts and activities for a pre-determined, non-negotiable time.
