Long days at work or intense practises/games on court require the same factor should you want to perform at your best: take pro-actively times off or breaks from time to time. Indeed, your performance is not only based on taking actions and/or steps. It is also based on ‘recovery’ times. We need breaks to perform at our best since we can’t maintain a constant level of intensity/concentration. The challenge is then to accept to take those. Pro-actively. To prepare the next action and to make the most of it.
