You already know that down time is valuable. Taking care of yourself by making relaxation a priority can actually make you more productive and help prevent burnout . But should we set standards for our down time? Is, for example, a soak in the tub more restorative than a Netflix binge session?
Full disclosure: I love Netflix. And Hulu.
I have been known to watching 10 years worth of TV in 10 days. I don’t believe there is anything inherently wrong with letting yourself check out from time to time.
