To hit off the happy medium between _over-_ and _under-work_ is no easy task
even to those who have the necessary knowledge, on the one hand, and the
liberty to arrange their own scheme of occupation, on the other. But, for one
person who is injured by doing too much, I quite believe with Dr. Wilkes that
many may be found who are sustaining serious damage from not having enough
mental stimulus. The listless vacuity in which so many of the well-to-do
classes spend their lives, the want of any incentive to exertion, and the
absence of any attempt at real thought which the wide-spread prevalence of
ready-made opinions in our periodical literature directly encourages, must
cause more or less degeneration of intellectual power. Under these conditions
the brain gradually loses its healthy tone, and, although quite equal to the
daily calls of a routine and uneventful existence, it is unable to withstand
the strain of special sudden emergency, and, when a heavy load of work is
unexpectedly thrown upon it in its unprepared state, then we see all the worst
consequences of what may be called overwork develop themselves.
