Reclaim Your Weekend
Remember when weekends were a time of rest and relaxation? No, neither do we. What with the mad tangle of work and family life that comprises our weeks, weekends (or Shatterday and Shunday as they have been fondly dubbed) are the only chance we get to catch up on the domestic duties that have fallen by the wayside.
While this Tazmanian devil-style whirlwind might seem like efficient living, we all know sooner or later something's got to give. Recuperation is fundamental to our sense of wellbeing. Without it, we're preventing ourselves from operating at optimum level.
The statistics say it all. New research shows that 90% of British people check their work emails while on holiday, and the number of people who work 48 hour weeks has risen to 26%. So before we all clap out with adrenal fatigue, it's time to take a stand and reclaim the weekend!
