Make time for a holiday and book in breaks, at least quarterly. Even a long weekend every quarter is better than nothing. But remember to advise your clients and customers as far in advance as possible.

Pomodoro Technique
Elena Cirera
@jorcus The Pomodoro technique is suitable for time management. Would you like to explain how this technique can improve work-life balance?
I used to be spontaneous but found that planning gave me much more flexibility. When using apps like Google Calendar, I categorise anything social or personally rewarding (ie. hobbies) with a bright green, happy colour to contrast my work and errands. I ensure I have one of those fun green blocks at least once a day :) If there isn't one of those green blocks during the day or it starts to decrease over time, I start considering what needs to change for me to have more of them. It encourages continual evaluation of my weekly schedule and my personal goals.
Launching soon!
Just having the right mind-set, self-discipline is the key!
