#askdrcherry on Work-Life Balance

Happy day #IAmaWorkaholic-I applaud you in seeking information to help yourself. I know the risks involved in decreased productivity especially in your environment.

Doing overtime work does increase productivity but this is a surge that only lasts for a few days or weeks. Prolonged working hours without rest will only lead to exhaustion.

On the other hand, shorter working hours with healthy breaks will increase your productivity both in quantity and quality. Use the value you have for your productivity to persuade yourself to make the change! I know that you can do it!
