Happy Fun Play Time
You need to keep your stress levels low. One way to accomplish this is to stay involved with activities you find fun and enjoyable. Sometimes that means you need to take a break during the day. Yes, during “working” hours.
Go ahead. It’ll be OK.
Of course if you take a break during the day then you are going to need to make up those hours later. Maybe you start your day a little earlier, or you work a little later. But you will need to make sure your work is getting done.
But the real point you need to consider is this: do you want your work to define who you are, or do you want to be known for activities you do outside the office?
I call it “Happy Fun Play Time”.
