Rest is your duty

No manager or boss is going to plan weekends, holidays and vacations for you. No colleagues or supervisors schedule breaks or pauses. It’s on you. We are on a long marathon and being in shape guarantees better results. With a personal open schedule and increased responsibility, people tend to overwork and spend less time on themselves. The result – drained and unhappy workaholics.

When planning, I, first thing, put pauses and food breaks in the calendar. I know that there will be a pause and it allows me to stay concentrated. Concentration vanishes in 20 to 30 min and I have a break to counter that. Time is limited and the brain works better solving harder tasks.

As a responsible professional with an open schedule plan breaks first. Then — work.
