Why Noise is Better Than Quiet

Why Noise is Better Than Quiet | Healthcare Continuing Education | Scoop.it

The sound of silence. It’s what many of us yearn for when working. We try to get away from all of the noise and distractions of our surroundings and get to a place – whether natural or virtual – to achieve that quiet space we long for. But that’s not necessarily the best thing for you to do.

The Need for Work/Life Balance

The Need for Work/Life Balance | Healthcare Continuing Education | Scoop.it

We all think the solution is to just work more hours. While this sometimes works in the short term, it can have dire consequences in the long run. The problem with such long hours of focused concentration is the burnout that we have all experienced at one time or another. Especially if you are a freelancer, you have to be extra conscious of how you spend your time and you can’t afford to make these mistakes. You don’t have the security of a regular job – if you are not putting in the time, you are not getting paid. However, at the same time you don’t want overwork yourself up to the point where you are burned out.
