I think every weekend should be a 3-day weekend.
Think about how much happier you are having Saturday, Sunday, AND Monday off. Think about how much you got done, how you had time with family, how you finally took a moment to sit down and breathe. Or maybe you didn’t do any of those things, but I’ll bet you got closer to them.
What if every weekend were this way?
I’ve posted several times about how dumb it is that we get off Friday, have to be at work first thing on Monday, and all the time in between just feels like time I’m using to catch up on all the things I couldn’t do Monday-Friday because I was busy with work.
Maybe I can organize a nationwide effort. It’ll be like senior cut day in high school, back when high school was fun and full of pranks and good times instead of bomb threats and see-through backpacks and metal detectors. Remember senior cut day? We just all carry on as if we’re going to show up, and then we just don’t. We all stay home, we all have our own reason for doing so, and we all come back the next day like it’s not big deal.
What if we just all stop going to work on Mondays? We’ll carry on through Friday as if we have every intention of returning Monday morning, but we won’t show up ‘til Tuesday. And we’ll spend our 3-day weekends feeling truly recharged. We’ll spend time with family, we’ll read books we’ve been putting off, we’ll go make an appointment wherever we haven’t been able to before because they work the same hours as us. It will be glorious. We’ll start a revolution.
Who’s in? ♣
