Remember to take a break.
When things go bad. When you feel down. When the motivation is low.
Take a break and direct your attention away from what is not working.
Learn something, instead of dedicating one more hour to the project that’s sucking your life away.
Chat with a stranger, instead of repeating the same things yet another time to the friend that is hurting you.
Grab a book, instead of checking your inbox once more waiting for the message that never comes.
You can always go back to the problem later on.
