I know you’ve heard the cliche, work hard play hard, but it’s so much more than a cliche. While it’s used jokingly and sometimes as motivation, it’s sound advice. It’s not healthy to work nonstop. On the flip side, it’s also not healthy to play nonstop. Finding a balance between the two can be the key to being your absolute best.
I don’t think I need to emphasize the importance of work in this success-driven society. We all want to be successful, and while it may be difficult, we’ve got to get things done. Whether it be studying for exams, rotating tires, or sitting at a desk, it’s important to do the best we can. Working hard and reaping the benefits is one of the most satisfying experiences. Believe it or not, you have something to share with the world. Whatever it is, you can do that in every area of your life by giving your best. For those of you who have been working hard and haven’t seemed to achieve the results you’re looking for, know that you will reap your reward. Some crops take more time and more resources to grow.
Rest is essential for productivity, and it doesn’t always have to be physical. For you resting may look more active like playing basketball or going dancing. The point is to cease from whatever you consider work to be. If you work in the service industry, your rest will probably look more like Netflix and chill because you’ll most likely want to be away from people and off your feet. If work for you is sitting at a desk, you’ll probably want to go out and party. Rest is vital to prevent burnouts. Playing hard after you’ve worked hard will give you the energy to keep grinding.
