So, Thursday was Valentine’s Day, and this coming Monday is Presidents’ Day, but did you know that Friday (the day this show aired) was Family Day in the Canadian province of Alberta? (Yes, I chuckled at its quaintness, too.) Canadians have at least one 3-day weekend in a month, and I think we could learn from their example. We are the most overworked western country in the world, with fewer vacation days than anyone else. Having scheduled days off benefits everyone. It helps keep people happy with something to look forward to, while cutting down on absenteeism.

Plus, working too much is bad for your health. Let’s be honest: It’s hard enough to eat healthy when you’re at work, and if you’re one of the majority of people who are dissatisfied with their job, you’re increasing your stress.

So, do yourself a favor: Put this podcast on your mp3 player of choice, and go out for an hour walk, even if the weather’s not nice. It’s not a day off, but it may be a step in the right direction.
