How excessive hours can negatively affect your productivity and mental health

What are you going to do when this lockdown is over? Will you go back to your old routines? ! Or will you give a chance to change? Quarantine has taught us to be patient. It gave us time for a lot of things that we missed and had no idea about. Our lives are eventful and those of our family too. All of this gave us time to spend it with each other. People we see, sit with, or rarely talk to. Don’t let family, work and personal care get confused.

We often find ourselves complaining about daily routines, we want to change but sometimes we feel bound by the duties that follow us even though we try to avoid them, resulting in rushing and awkward scheduling.

Over-planning is one of the biggest mistakes we make in this pressure. Trying to achieve everything and anything, not giving importance to a little moment of relaxation. It’s damaging and makes us act like robots. Nowadays, people don’t have time to sit down and think properly, which is really necessary.
We are at an age where we need to be programmed systematically to avoid the stressful part and keep our minds calm.

Students cringe just looking at their calendar which simply indicates too busy a schedule to even see for themselves! Even with all the stress, people don’t recognize the wrong path, but try to maintain it and hope it will improve as they work it.

Warning: avoid this

Try to keep these things in mind:

# It’s never easy if you don’t agree. The first step to unraveling the timeline is to admit the problem.

# Then decide to have a manageable day with priority things and end by dropping the unnecessary load that was just the feeling of “something more”. There will always be something waiting, be wise to only gather what you know.

# Prepare a schedule and divide the time according to how long a task takes. Spending more time than necessary will simply be wasted and anxiety will surface for other things that need to be done.

# Resist the urge to multi-task, which will mess up or cause delays and only adds to the heat.

# After a reasonable amount of study, extra work and school activities have times for you or dedicate them to people who want your attention… Take a few minutes for headspace as a pit stop in a trip .

# Manage your busy day.

# Cramming all you wish and wanting to accomplish as soon as possible is just an invitation to stress and turmoil people suffer in the later halves of their lives.
A clear brain will perform better than a messy brain that is stressed and confused most of the day. We need to calm our minds for more productive work.


  • Try closing your eyes and push the stress away just for a little while, take a deep breath and imagine your dream location.
  • Listen to soothing music so you can lighten the Heart.
  • Write down your thoughts and feelings if you feel overwhelmed and your thoughts are more focused.
  • Hot baths are also very effective if you need to meditate after a long day.
  • Naps of around 30 minutes before starting the second half of the day are always an option.

Avoid being a full-fledged workaholic and come up with creative and different ideas to enjoy the functions of life. If falling behind is what gives you the chills, then focus and consistency are your keys to overcoming that feeling. Fly a few minutes of the hour. Don’t try to run with it, challenge yourself not to compare the work limit with time. He never stops for anyone, it won’t do you any good to run after him.

It is true that generation after generation time becomes more competitive and people rush to achieve something amazing and work hard day and night. Working hard makes us hard, but if we work smart it’s something that will get us somewhere. Anything extreme is bad and certainly not conducive to health.
Such a chaotic rhythm triggers a person’s sanity. Even if you think you can handle it, trust me when things slip through your fingers, it’s hard trying to get things on track.

Driving you to great levels of depression or anxiety makes it even harder. People have more mental health issues these days than ever before.

Complex lives have consequences, you may not have much value now, but later as adults we tend to regret it.

Slow down your thought process, spend some time with yourself, instead of trying to remember your duties and responsibilities.

Time to work!

Find the time zone in which you feel the most energetic, improve the quality and quantity of your work, open the door to your energy and increase the pace of your most demanding tasks. Natural energy will take less time and effort to hide, it will leave you satisfied and feeling accomplished.

Keeping it simple will help you understand the situation better and be easier to resolve.

Find balance in your life. Even your social life and commitments can be difficult to keep up with, so don’t try to please everyone at once. Accepting each of them should have some value. Saying “yes” should at least make you think, not just blindly promise or give your word.

Discuss your problems with someone you trust and who you know can understand you better.

Prioritize and don’t just “tighten things up”. Start aiming for something you really like. Carry out projects that inspire or excite you. Keep your desires intact, master a skill or two rather than being a “Jack of All Trades, Master of None”.

Why not overprogram?

~ Few of you may have experienced this, but who try to acquire all known sports, music, instruments, even academics all at once, start to lose interest just after a little while. They burn with their desire to work more for things. They feel drained and distant from the things that once fascinated them.

~ Family relationships are affected due to the burden of performing tasks that exhaust an individual. We start to feel obligated to do something and it becomes too much to handle the daily rituals. Frustration and irritation take root, affecting the ensuing interactions.

The prevailing feeling among parents is that every passing moment should be optimized but becomes an oversight as to how it can affect the one who has to perform all the activities. Students are depressed so early in life when they should be able to live freely and be able to enjoy their days. Parents need to encourage resilience and help teens achieve balance.

Things in life are accomplished over a course of time, trying to put that together in a snap won’t make you better or exceptional than others. A planned day takes you further than rushing through tasks or getting lots of jobs done in a day. Don’t put pressure on yourself, try to relax a bit instead. Bond with your family, get outside and breathe fresh, think about your day at least for a little while.

We try to follow, which is not wrong! Wanting to succeed and working for it is something to be proud of. It’s about doing it with a little fun.

Observe the patterns and try to correct them.
