Prompted by “Outwitting burnout”: http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-living/stress-management/expert-blog/seo-url-keyword/bgp-20120560
The following are approaches (based upon the main points in the prompting piece) that I embrace fwiw, and love to express here fwiw…
Be in the now. Abusing the parts of my brain focused upon the future and past is senseless. Those parts exist to help with the now, not to be constantly relied upon (e.g. constantly worrying about, or living in, the future or past).
Do not overwork. Balance is key for stability, and stability is key for survival. Modern society is still stuck generally in ‘more work, less relaxing’ mode, but as our explosive universe cools down, perhaps so too can humanity’s push for “productivity” in the name of improving balance.
