The Stress Barometer

Written on 2016-02-08 • conversation

I was talking with a friend today about stress. Building a company sure can be stressful on occasion, how do you know if you are too busy or not? It is easy to lose track of time and space, and also your health.

I told my friend that my barometer for whether I was working too hard is sports. Twice a week, I go to martial arts class. I rarely miss a class, but when I do, I know it is a stressful period and I should take a step back, look at the big picture, and reorganise. It is my stress barometer and it helps me keep an eye on my mental and physical health. Which is too easy to let slide when you are building something you love.
