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 10

This one is a bit controversial, but I've come to believe it through my own experience. The rule of ten states that if it can't be done in ten hours in a day, it shouldn't be done. Occasionally putting in over time or having crunch times is fine, it just doesn't need to become a way of life. Anything more robs you of your presence in all the other areas of your life.

The Rule of Recovery

After a particularly stressful period at work, it's vital for good health to have an equally enjoyable recovery time.

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.
