Work and rest are partners.
Rest replenishes vital resources necessary for work.
However, your body must be lacking those vital resources to warrant rest.
You must be pushed past your limit.
Or else it’s like washing a clean plate- wasteful.
Don’t take breaks when you “feel” like it.
They will be sporadic and underestimate your limit.
Instead, decide beforehand when you will take your break.
Either by deciding on a length of time (ex: 4 hours) or a certain milestone (ex: chapter 5).
During this time, your mind will come up with excuses to stop.
That’s when you would of quit before.
Because when you stop when you “feel” like it, it’s quitting and quitting wastes time.
