[Question] How do you know it’s time for a break?

My origi­nal ques­tion was some­thing like “how much pro­duc­tive work can peo­ple do in a day?”, but even if I got a signed piece of pa­per from God tel­ling me the ex­act av­er­age, that wouldn’t be very use­ful to in­di­vi­d­u­als ex­cept as cover for stop­ping once they’d reached the av­er­age. Some peo­ple are clearly ca­pa­ble of do­ing more than oth­ers, the same per­son has differ­ent ca­pac­i­ties for differ­ent kinds of work.

So in­stead I’m ask­ing “How do you know when you need a break? When you’re done for the day?”. My hope is that read­ing an­swers will in­spire peo­ple to rec­og­nize tells in them­selves they pre­vi­ously hadn’t, and this will let them bet­ter as­sess when to push through and when to break.
