Thanks! Now Relax and Have Fun!
Written by:Jackie Barker
The US celebrates Labor Day on Monday. It is a time “to honor the contributions and resilience of working Americans.” So thanks.
- We work hard…an average of 47 hours per week. (not to mention all the times we check our phones and emails.)
- We receive a lot of emails each day—88! We send a lot of email, 34.
- We receive on average 67 texts per day.
- The pace of change isn’t slowing down. In fact, it’s increasing, we will have to continue to evolve ourselves and how we work. We will need to be resilient, creative and innovative.
But we don’t have to do it this weekend. In fact, I offer you a challenge. Neuroscience tells us if we take breaks, we come back refreshed and even more productive. So…my challenge.
Challenge - Pick one day this weekend and do just that. (If you can do all weekend that’s even better.) Take a break. Turn off your cell phone, your computer, and do something fun. Do something that will make you smile.
