Today is celebrated in the United States as Independence Day. For many this is a day off of work. If this is a day off for you I encourage you to actually take the day off. This means not using the “extra” day to get caught up on housework, your blog, social networking or that business you are trying to get started. It means a day that you leave the cellphone and other electronic devices at home and spend time with friends, family or enjoying nature. Have a little fun. This can be really difficult for those of us who are self employed and work at home, but it is important. Take the day off.
Now for those of you outside the U.S. this applies to your national or work holidays when they roll around. In fact I hope everyone takes at least one day out of every week off. We need it, not just to rest, relax and recharge, but also to remember that life is supposed to be fun. Take time to enjoy it!
