Fun Helps Productivity
There can be a tendency to do too much work. When you start feeling bogged down by work and burnt out…it’s time to stop and completely take your mind off work. Switch modes. Switch modes into fun or entertainment or something to take your mind away.
There’s levels to this also. Vacations or group events seem to totally take my mind off work.
You’ll know you’re succeeding with this approach when you’re eager to get back to work. When you’ve played so much you feel that itch to get some productive work done. If you’re truly taking off enough time, you’ll find yourself renewed and work will flow easier. It’s like you recharged your batteries. Even the work you love needs a break now and then. Counterintuitive I know…but many of the great solutions are.
