At the end of every day, we want to feel a sense of accomplishment. How we achieve that will vary, depending on our focus for the day, and also how productive we’ve been. I’ve read many books on productivity and time-management and learned different things from each of them.
When we feel under pressure of work, or if we are involved in something inspiring, it can be hard to switch off. When we keep working in ‘full on’ mode, our body is in a double-bind. On one hand, it’s doing something that is rewarding and enjoyable. On the other hand, it’s struggling to keep going without proper downtime for rest and recovery.
