Hard work and success go hand-in-hand.

But being successful doesn't mean you have to work yourself into an early grave.

Even if you absolutely love your job, you might feel overwhelmed or burnt out.

Fortunately, there are ways to stop overworking yourself and still remain successful.

1. Take a Lunch Break Every Day

If you have a busy, hectic schedule, you might work nine hours or 10 hours a day and skip your lunch breaks.

However, if you don't take breaks throughout the day to re-charge your mind, it can feel like you're going in circles.

You might earn a nice salary, but physically you might be beyond exhausted.

2. Only Work Eight or Nine Hours

Understandably, this might be difficult in some occupations.

But if you took a position under the promise that you would only work a 40-hour week, yet you're working nine, 10 or 12 hours a day, have a talk with your boss.

Let your boss know you're overwhelmed and need to cut back.

In all likelihood, your boss might be oblivious to the fact that you're working around-the-clock.

3. Don't Bring Work Home

And if you can convince your boss to let you work only eight or nine hours a day, fight the urge to bring work home.

You might be physically out of the office, but your mind's still in work mode.

This can disrupt your evening and night.

So when you leave the office in the late afternoon, you should also leave your assignments and the day's problems.

4. Work Smarter, Not Harder

You might feel overworked if you're handling a variety of different tasks and you're unable to fit everything into a single workday.

They're only 24 hours in a day, and you only have so much energy.2

Therefore, get help and delegate some of your assignments.2

This way, everything gets done on schedule without you feeling overworked.
