Working Too Many Hours In An Unorganised Fashion Can Be Mentally Tiring.

If you work for 12 hours, with 6 hours of productive time, it will feel as if you have been working for the full 12 hours, because for the 6 hours you were unproductive, you are still in 'work mind' rather than 'rest mind', despite the fact you are essentially doing the same as if you dedicated break time.

Allowing yourself generous breaks is essential, and it's also useful to compact your working day in one solid chunk that you start and finish, to stay as alert and productive as possible.

On the contrary, I find a 12 hour day with 6 hours of high productivity to be very satisfying (once it's done anyway!)

I love days when I get loads done, it gives me a much-needed confidence boost.

I still feel like I've been 'working' even though 6 hours had been recrational. I think that 4 hours working, 30 mintue break, and 4 hours working feels less demanding than less work over a longer period.
