Workaholism: 4 Universal Laws for Recovery

The Rule of Balance

There is more to life than work. There are so many other areas of our lives than just work. Spend some time each day and/or week focused on all the other areas of your life. Repeat after me, there is more to life than work.

The Rule of Rest

Remember rest?

I have a friend who likes to say "I'll rest when I die." My fear is his rest will be too soon and too long. If we don't give our body and mind the rest they need, our bodies and minds will find a way to get the rest they need.
