It’s very easy to be consumed and overwhelmed by your workload, and the rise of remote work can have a severe impact on your personal life. Even doing something that you’re passionate about can cause burnout writes Joseph Liu for Forbes. He tells us reasons why it’s important to take a break.  

Self-Rejuvenation  

Liu suggests finding an activity to do every day that rejuvenates and centers you so that you can be re-energized to get back to work. Just make sure that whatever you seek to do is unrelated to your job.  

Productivity
