Being a student that works/studies 09.00 – 20.00 Mon-Fri, I totally agree with this. I’d say one of my biggest flaws is working all the time and never truly switching off and making best use of my weekends.
By ‘switching off thoughts one by one’, you’re effectively meditating (that’s my understanding of it, anyway,) which works great at clearing the mind at the end of a hard day’s graft. The stress really does bleed into other aspects of life, Jon’s spot on with this one. As usual.
