After a high-stress period of time, it is healthy to have a cooling-down period. I have learned that it’s not good to stop suddenly, you have keep walking to avoid a muscle cramp. (read emotional breakdown)
Have you come off a project lately that you needed to process before you moved on? Do you do that with every project or just “the big ones”?
I tend to keep the heart rate (read schedule of activities) up too long and can crash into a burn out mode if not careful. To avoid burn out or emotional muscle burn I decided to issue a cooling down period for myself.
It seems to have worked, in the last week I’ve been able to rest on what I’ve learned but move forward with new plans and vision without a sudden stop and crash.
What do you do to cool down?
