I have been working on so many things lately that I sometimes forget how important some down time is. Between taking care of my son, looking for a new 9-5, working on a book, working on my inventions and the list goes on.
I got pretty burnt out two nights ago. I needed to relax. Luckily my dvr had a few shows I like. A few hours of TV used to be my nightly ritual. These days I’m working on something to either make money or improve myself but it’s really important for some down time.
Not that I’m any sort of expert but I keep burning myself and feeling bad mentally. When that happens I know it’s time for a break. To prevent burnout I’m going to be practicing the 30 min rule. That’s 30 min a day to myself to relax. If you work hard all day I think you earn it.
