You eat lunch at your desk, stay back at the office - and just push through, working harder and longer.
But all the studies show this leads to stress and burnout. You end up neglecting your health, and end up feeling overwhelmed and out of control. You don’t get time to focus on high-value, strategic work.
Your mind gets busy, making it even harder to focus and impairing your sleep. You wake up in the early hours of the morning with your mind going a million miles per hour and can’t get back to sleep, leaving you fatigued and foggy the next day.
Your relationships start to suffer as you find it harder and harder to be present with the people around you. And you lose sight of the things that make life truly meaningful for you.
Plus the quality of your work suffers because stressed-out, burned-out brains don’t function properly. Which means you end up in a downward spiral of stress, overwhelm and low quality work.
