Just like scheduled meetings on your Outlook or Google calendar, it’s important to schedule blocks of time for activities that make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
As a full-time content writer and editor, I know there are days that it’s a struggle to step away from the computer, but your self-care, personal relationships, and mental health are more important than your inbox.
If your mental health takes a dive, then it’s going to affect whatever you have on the calendar for work. Get your mental health and happiness squared away and that will translate to higher quality work and a happier life.
So block out some time in your calendar for workouts, a long walk, reading, freewriting, or even watching a movie. Whatever it takes to make you feel relaxed so that you can step back into your job with a clear mind.
