Stop working. Stop typing. Stop e-mailing. Stop blogging.
Just stop. & relax. & chill the F out.
He responded with this: “if you don’t take a day of rest, you’ll burn yourself out. It’s so important to take one day off a week & not do one thing having to do with work. You’ll be a happier human, you’ll feel more inspired, & you’ll start your week off with more energy and drive.
I panicked. Not return one e-mail? For one whole day? I mean, really? Not even one measly old e-mail?
“Nope, not one, take a day off,” he said.
Zero, zilch, nada.
My overworked brain couldn’t comprehend his words of wisdom. Until this weekend.
When I realized he was absolutely right.
So I put his plan in action…& for one day this weekend I.didn’t.work.
And honestly? It kinda felt liberating.
Anyway if you’re anything like me, try it. LMK how it goes. Taking one day off ( my day of choice definitely a Saturday or Sunday ) to not have work crap will be rad.
Rad for you, rad for your boyfriend/girlfriend/dog/wife/blah/blah, & rad for your psyche.
Ride a bike, take a hike, go on a super romantical date, read a book, get a pedicure, volunteer, walk the dog, clean out your closet…just do something other than freaking work!
