But you have to remember that your work suffers when you push yourself until youre strung out.
So, here’s what you should do to avoid burn out:
Dont slack, schedule your tasks and hit them. And when youre done, stop. Dont work 24/7. Its easy to do as a freelancer or creative, but dont. When your list is done, stop and reward yourself. Do something simple that you love: read during a bubble bath, enjoy a pot of tea with friends, or vegetate on some horror flicks in a dark room (one of my favorite rewards!).
Finish a big project? Did you score and exceed your sales expectations? Go out to dinner, get your nails done, or buy that little thing youve been wanting.
Remember: In a way, our work is out life, but dont forget that were working to enjoy our lives! On that note, Im stopping now to watch some horror movie goodness.
How will you treat yourself this week?
