Allowing a battery to go to 0% damages the battery significantly. It’ll be possible to get the battery fully charged again, but it will run out much quicker. At the same time, charging a battery to 100% isn’t that great either and also injures the life of the battery.
People are in some sense, quite similar. We do best with daily sprints of work and nightly rest in order to recharge.
It doesn’t take much putzing around in this world to experience just how haggard and hindered it feels to burn the candle at both ends for too long.
But likewise, most all of us know that strange phenomenon of feeling tired after getting an extraordinary amount of sleep.
Like the battery, one is certainly worse than the other. Best to oversleep than overwork.
But even better is to keep the equation balanced. There’s always tomorrow for more work, and if we overdo it today, our ability to stay consistent tomorrow drops.
