I’m thinking of starting a movement: Work Free Wednesday.
I took a Wednesday off from work a few weeks ago. I got 10 hours of much-needed sleep and woke up refreshed. I had an awesome workout followed by a healthy breakfast (that I had time to enjoy). Then I went for groceries and ran a couple errands.
Once I got home, Harold and I went out for a lovely hour-long walk in the sunshine. I followed that up with baking cookies, making treats for Harold, and a little house cleaning.
After Kelly got home from work and went for a run, I had a delicious and nutritious dinner cooked and waiting. I also made our lunches for Thursday during this time.
Lastly, we took Harold for another walk, I did 20 minutes of relaxation yoga, and had time to read.
I felt refreshed and ready to put my all into work and everything else for the rest of the week.
I have zero science or research to back it, but I swear employees would be more productive, homes would be cleaner, relationships would be stronger, and people would be healthier if Wednesday’s were work free!
I think I’d even choose four, 10-hour workdays to get every Wednesday off!
Are you in?! Do you work Monday to Friday or a different schedule?
