I am working hard, saying "I've been doing so much work and not relaxing. It's really time to not do work and relax. But I don't know how to stop." Friendly dinosaur says: "Why not COMPROMISE and do a little of both?" One COMPROMISE later ... I sit, looking stressed, labled 'not working' and 'not relaxing'

    For me, maybe for you too, not working never equals relaxing. Is it a fallacy cooked up by the travel industry? Here’s a secret: I love working. Holidays stress me out.

      For me, it depends. When work was studying for university, I was very keen to do some relaxing (though I always felt guilty about it). Now that work is writing and drawing? Pretty much the only thing that makes me stop is when my illness drops me. And I’ve recently become aware that while it’s great I like what I’m doing, I probably need to do some non-work things for health reasons.

    Only time you get to relax is when your cat sits on your laptop and forces you to stop? That is how it works for me

    This was me today, contemplating leaving work early because I had nothing to do, so that I could go home and lie on the couch and do nothing.

    Yout comics always bring smile to my face. This is so spot on.
