It may not be considered a great thing to be an alcoholic, but people generally think that it is a matter of pride to be a workaholic! Work—physical and mental — is a by-product of a nature of the mind called rajas or vikshepa. That is the reason why a kind is called Raja or one who is expected to be very dynamic and active all the time. Work is needed indeed to get things going in this world — at our workplace, in our homes and in our own body too. Work in moderation, followed by conscious rest (not just conking off the rest of the time!) and a time to rest without doing anything, but just sitting up, standing or walking without any particular goal in mind is also very essential.
