I found Madeleine Dore’s article addressing how we view work and burn out very refreshing:
When our workloads increase, many of us decide to up our number of working hours. But harnessing moments of ‘unfocus’ might be the key to getting more done in less time.
In other words, mastering the art of deflecting distractions while creating more frequent breaks of relaxation, exercise, and socializing with other people might help you deal better with stress and work more productively.
As the old saying goes, work smart… not hard. It’s easier said than done.
