It's OK to Stop
Stop working and have fun
I wrote this as part of my #100WordHabit, and it was during my recent burnout.
Mental health is a tricky subject. One should never underestimate the impact.
So friends, stop giving passing remarks and unsolicited advice.
There's no right or wrong solutions for it. It's just happened with its own mind.
You can give advice, but often times, you just let them be. (Again) It's not the same as giving up.
For me, the best advice I would give to myself is that "It's OK to Stop". Just take a break and find your “distractions” because you can't focus. And the more you work, the worse it can be.
That's what I'm doing right now. I'm taking a break.
I want to enjoy doing something new and fun, but with a caveat;
I need to write every day. No specific topics, so no pressure on that. And I must write what's on my mind.
The main goal here is to have clarity and be smarter on my “time” management.
Why the quotes you might ask? I'll answer it with a quote from David Kadavy's book — Mind Management, Not Time Management.
“You have the TIME. Do you have the ENERGY? You’ve done everything you can to save time. Every productivity tip, every “life hack,” every time management technique. But the more time you save, the less time you have. The more overwhelmed, stressed, exhausted you feel.”
