Bring Back the 40 Hour Work Week

Are you happy in your job?  Do you feel fulfilled by what you do each day for a living? A lot of people do not. We have all heard the advice “do something you love and you will never work a day in your life,” but how many of us can say that we love what we do?  Studies are showing how our unhappiness and our overworked lifestyle is having an affect on our sleep, our health and our relationships. Maybe it’s time to ponder a career change.  

For the record, I do love what I do!  This sponsored Infographic points out some scary statistics about the state of our work week.

The Weekend

Happy First Weekend of Summer friends and followers!  Even though I work for myself, I still look forward to the change of pace on the weekend. A couple of days to approach things differently and an opportunity to spend more time outdoors. Yes, yardwork counts as time outdoors :-)

So what are your plans for this weekend? I intend to unwind a bit, turn off some of the digital devices that I am plugged in to most every day and spend that precious time outside, in the sun, breathing the fresh air. I intend to do some summer planning this weekend.  I read an interesting post today from Chris Brogan ~ @ChrisBrogan ~ entitled Summer Diet.  His post made me think about how we can and should reevaluate our schedule for the summer.  Sorta like we normally do for the weekend.

Enjoy the weekend friends!  Unwind, plan for the week, plan for the summer or just walk barefoot in the grass.  Trust me, it will be enjoyable!
