I felt this way for a long time and ultimately led to burning out two years ago. Took me a very long time to recover from that and in many ways I still struggle with this today.

There will always be more work and you can always be doing something to feel more "productive". Because of this, it's important to remember that although many of us work as part of sprints. Life and your career is very much a marathon. So pace yourself, take breaks, and only sprint when you really need to.
