“Maintain Your Mental Well-Being” is a paper published by the Harvard Business Review on what it rightly calls “ …. a different epidemic happening out there that’s getting less attention …. ”: the importance of good mental as well as physical health.
The paper lists seven essential mental activities:
Focus Time. Working on goal-oriented tasks and challenges.
Play Time. Spontaneous or creative; enjoying experiences
Connecting Time. Social activity.
Physical Time. Physical activity.
Time In. Personal time and reflection..
Down Time. Relaxing..
Sleep Time. Essential rest.
