It is easy to work after hours and while we are on holiday. When we do this, we put our job before ourselves. If you are not operational, put a healthy boundary in place: turn off the work phone and email. Focus on the beauty of life outside of work - rejuvenate.
Feeling appreciated at work and referencing your performance based on what others think is important. However, it is imperative to recognise the merit and appropriateness of your own accomplishments...to be able to tell yourself "job well done" "excellent" & "good enough".
Explicitly knowing your organisational or corporate culture can help you understand what to expect while on the job and navigate the terrain. To know that culture, reference official statements, your opinion & observations along with knowledge of what your colleagues think.
