Challenge Yourself, Even During Downtime
There’s no question that we’re at greater risk of burnout today than we were 10 years ago. One way to recharge is to schedule restorative experiences that you look forward to. Making plans to play tennis with a friend or cook a meal with your spouse compels you to focus on an approach goal (doing something pleasurable) instead of an avoidance goal (not checking email). Approach goals are often easier and more enjoyable to achieve. Studies have indicated that doing an activity you find interesting – even if it’s taxing – is better for you than simply relaxing. Sure, it’s appealing to laze on your couch with a tub of popcorn and Netflix, but try to engage in something more challenging – like a crossword or game of chess. Even though it’s difficult, it will give you more energy. What you do with your downtime matters.
