Most people perform quite monotonous work and repeat it from day to day, not everyone is lucky to do some freelance writing jobs, which presupposes independence from work schedule etc. However even such job may bring frustration eventually. It is proved that a person needs to change job at least each 5-7 years, because that’s the period enough for achieving certain results at your work but for this time your work may turn into torture for you and even cause extreme tiredness, also known as http://www.hmc.psu.edu/hematology/homeguide/fatigue.htm. Scientists research a lot on this issue and publish their results in order to keep people from fatigue.

You may help yourself and prevent yourself from being abnormally tired, from losing interest in what you are doing. Just never forget to change a bit your activities and develop new options for yourself. As the saying goes, “Minds are like parachutes. They only function when opened”. So, do not be afraid to open your mind to something new and do not forget to take some rest.
