Why you should stop working so hard, the real truth about hard work

We are all told that to succeed we have to work hard and ‘hustle’. Now, there is nothing wrong with working hard and if you believe you should then do it. However, there are a lot of non-beneficial things that can come from it.

When it comes to working hard you must take into account things like health and fun otherwise what is the point. Health is the most important factor. Without good health you can’t work to the level you wish and will compromise the quality of your work. But if your health is good, then you will be able to work happily.

Sleep is another factor. I’ve heard successful people say that they worked so hard they never slept, or they slept less hours. Less sleep has been shown to make you very tired during the day and affect your ability to think, remember and process information. So, if you are working be sure to get enough sleep to be more efficient.

YOLO. You only live once, right? Truth is you can’t spend your entire life working and working without having some fun. At the end of the day, experiences are what makes life enjoyable so we shouldn’t sacrifice that part out. It’s better to spend equal time in work and in having fun.

No one is saying to stop working completely, to stop dreaming and to stop working towards your goals. Just take into consideration your health, fun and well-being so you can get the most out of life and truly enjoy it without sacrificing important aspects of it.
