Across North America, today is Take Back Your Time Day. Specifically taking back all the overwork and over-scheduling in our lives. Not a bad idea. How often do you actually stop and smell the roses. Not proverbially, but literally?
I actually do this. Photography helps me to stop and look at things. So does having a kid. But I still feel overworked. I think three days is an ideal workweek, and yet most of us work 5 days a week.
On a related note, the talk of the morning news of this week has been that Sunday is actually the most stressful day of the week as millions gear up for what to expect in the coming work-week. I've known this for ages -- when I worked Sunday to Thursday, I got the Saturday blues.
