Pretend this Evening

If you can afford the time off or get paid regardless of whether or not you go into the office, today is officially employee hook day.  It’s National Stay at Home Because You Are Well Day! I love the commercial for Ocean City that harps on how we rarely spend our vacation days on vacation. Well, today spend it on a stay-cation. Sip tea by the fire, dance around naked, or finally go sky diving.  If you can’t afford to celebrate for real, pretend this evening, chill like you mean it and…


All work

If you’re all work and no play, celebrate.  It’s Workaholics Day!  If you’re the first in and the last out, think about work 24/7 and even take an extra piece of luggage on vacation for your work materials, you’re a workaholic. Maybe you’re a workaholic because you’re so driven you don’t have time to stop and smell the roses.  Maybe you love your job so much, you neglect the fact that others would rather spend time with you minus your Powerpoint for next week’s meeting.  Or, maybe you work for a boss that expects you to be at their beck and call, even though no one’s life is at risk. Today and today only, we celebrate your dedication and the gray hairs that come with it.

Celebrate today by continuing to be engrossed in your work, or finally, give yourself and your family the day off.  Engage in conversations that have nothing to do with your job. Acknowledge the world beyond your laptop.  Go outside and literally smell a rose.  Have fun and…DON’T WORK TODAY!
