We often find that those working in high pressured jobs tend to work all hours under the sun, constantly firefighting the challenges they are faced with and never feeling like they have the time to really slow down or stop. Sound familiar?
At times like these, although it may feel like you are doing the best you can, the likelihood is you’re burning out, not thinking straight and therefore you can’t apply your skills and knowledge efficiently or effectively.
Despite there never seeming to be enough hours in a day, it’s important to take a break – grab some food, go for a walk, chat with a friend - try stopping, even if just for 5 minutes and take a step back. You’ll be surprised by the results!
Overworking makes for an unsustainable work/life balance, where both sides of the balance are affected, and not in a good way. To be truly productive it’s important to make sure you take time out!
