Free Days – Rest and Rejuvenation Matter!

25 April 2018

We’ve just finished a busy tax season at our firm. Now that it’s behind us, and the end of the school year approaches, I am looking forward to taking some time off to rest and rejuvenate, including: a full schedule at Jazz Fest this year; going to Asheville, North Carolina, in June, to spend time with our daughter, who will be teaching kayaking there all summer; a July trip to Sonoma, California, for a few days of wine tasting and a half-marathon; and, finally, an August trip to Kentucky to launch our daughter, Meghan, into college.

As much as I love my work – and that is to say, a lot – taking time off for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation is important.

Whether you call them “down days,” “free days,” or just “vacations,” I believe that getting away from your daily routine is vital to the wellbeing of mind and body, and, indeed, the quality of your work life. Taking time to rejuvenate can provide new insights and new perspectives, in addition to a refreshed and clear mind to bring to your work when you return.

During free days, consider shutting down your email, and not making or taking work-related calls. Make the most of your time off. Whether it’s exploring new places, reading a book you’ve been looking forward to, or spending time with friends and family, be where you are, fully. It will pay off, sooner than you might think.
