      Hi @beautiful tragity,

      Good question – especially when you work within a field that doesn’t really have an “off button”. I am a strong believer in work-life balance as I understand that in order for me to be as productive as I can e, I have to be kind to my body and brain and let it rest and relax frequently. I work very hard Monday-Friday and when I leave the office on Friday, that’s me done with work until Monday morning. It doesn’t and wont always be like that, but even if I accomplish that 75% of the time, that’s good enough. I also make sure the latest I work in the week normally is never later than around 8-9pm, so that I give myself a good hour or so to wind down before I go to bed so that I don’t dream about work too! Balance between work and rest is vital and I always try to apply it to everything I do.
