Try Really Hard, and then Stop, Recover, and Repeat
Resilience requires you to recharge so that you can endure.
There is a correlation between lack of recovery and health and safety problems. Whether your sleep is disrupted by thoughts of work, or you are constantly watching your phone, the continuous cognitive arousal is counterproductive to the increased productivity you think you’re accomplishing.
Rest is not the same as recovery.
Resting in bed while thinking about work leaves you exhausted still.
Start by strategically stopping. Don’t have lunch at your desk. Spend time out of the office with friends, not talking or thinking about work. Use all of your paid time off. And find times where recovery can be accomplished (such as travel time on a plane).
