According to psychological studies, what leads to regret is chasing extrinsic (external) rewards instead of intrinsic (internal) ones.

What that means is that if someone’s “mediocre” life actually meets their internal desires, regret isn’t likely an issue.

But yeah — time to rest and heal is an important thing not to be taken lightly. Oddly, I just wrote about that last night. :)
