Pokimane hints at more breaks from Streaming in future


Everyone starts streaming hoping to make it big on platforms like Twitch and YouTube but only a few do. Becoming a celebrity streamer comes with fair share of troubles which make life extremely unpleasant at times which is the case for Pokimane.

One of the most popular streamers on Twitch, Pokimane boasts millions of fans around the world who are willing to dedicate time from their day just to watch her stream. As much as this kind of support means a lot for streamers, they might find themselves under unwanted pressure to meet expectations.

In fear of burnout, Pokimane took a break from streaming which made her reconsider the way she goes about maintaining her work-life balance. “There is always a little bit of that sentiment of like, should I stream? I’m playing games off-stream, so should I stream that?” she said.

“It is just so hard to properly enjoy your time off without thinking that you should or could be doing more, especially with streaming,” she added. “It’s the one thing where there are just about no diminishing returns if you can stream 20 hours a day, every single day.” added Pokimane.

So far what is suggested is an re-worked streaming schedule that will help her keep stress at bay. Streaming dedicatedly and consistently often yields amazing results but at the cost of the streamer’s health which has to be taken into account.

So far her stress-busting plans are publicized but the community will appreciate her taking out time for herself if she eventually end up doing so.
