Everyone praises those who work hard — so it’s not unusual for people to think that it’s good to push your limits and do as much as you can.

But what’s the best thing to do when you’re tired and exhausted? Should you see how far you can go, or take a break?

In this short episode, we discuss embracing our limits as a choice. With so many things out of control, we need to discern when to take a rest because work will never stop for us. We also discuss how you can start to recognise warning signs. Remember, people don’t go from okay to complete burnout overnight, it’s a long process.

If you want to know how to embrace your limits and live a happier life, stay tuned to this episode.
