Pokimane shares her thoughts on her streaming lifestyle

Recently, the celebrated streamer posted a new episode of IRL Diaries on her lifestyle channel, imane. During the conversation about her life, she talked about an off-day she took from streaming. She stated that the culture around streaming forces content creators to work longer hours for more returns. This causes creators like her to think about streaming something even though they have taken a break.

“Even though I had such a great day off, there is always a little bit of that sentiment of like, should I stream? Okay, well, I’m playing games off-stream, should I stream that?”

Pokimane later explained that she has a torrid time enjoying her life off-stream after looking at her colleagues from the industry working and streaming hard every day. As she mentioned that it always helps to stream longer hours, it’s tough for creators like her to think about taking a day off just to relax. Streaming for long hours always helps boost the creator’s channels. However, Poki believed that they might not like their decision when they reminisce about it while laying on their deathbed.

“It is just so hard to properly enjoy your time off without thinking that you should or could be doing more. Especially with streaming, it’s the one thing where there are just about never diminishing returns.”
