Finding a balance
I have always been the type of person who works obsessively once I am focused on a project. The illness that caused me to lose my job forced me to be much more aware of how that determination can go awry if left unchecked.
Starting a new site has been an exciting and inspiring process for me, but with so much to do I find myself slipping into old habits of not making enough time in the day to take care of myself. I am curious as to what everyone does to find that balance between building a site from the ground up and taking care of yourself? I have worked the last two nights from 8unam til 5am the next day with a few breaks squeezed in and I need to stop myself from falling back into bad habits.
My latest attempt to counteract this has been to set the alarm on my phone for 10 minutes til every hour and give my self a short break when it goes off so that I am forced to make sure I take a breather. I also have one hour in the morning that I have set aside for exercise.
What do you to do keep yourself sane? What are your secrets to life work balance?
