Less work, more play

Isn’t this the dream? Working less and “playing” more. We all want that work life cdd3ede5b82bfe26f82ca7b91adb4d61--labor-day-happy-labour-daybalance, but what if you could actually enjoy your work and have it feel like “play”? Wouldn’t we all be happier?

I know this is simply not a reality for most of us, but there are things we can do to make not only our days more enjoyable, but also our weeks. Last week my husband and I had a ton of fun. Of course we are fortunate enough to be following our passions in our work, but even we get stuck in the weekly rut of just working, sitting on the couch and going to bed.

Last week, however, we did fun things a couple nights after work. We met up with friends one night and enjoyed the nice weather at a local brewery another night. This may not seem like a lot, but for us, it was different.

While it was nothing crazy, it was nice to get out of the house and treat each day as a gift rather than a chore. Having little things to do and look forward to each week (not just on the weekends) is a great way to start enjoying your life more. We are not meant to work hard all day everyday. We need rest and play to be our best. So, treat yourself and enjoy all this life has to offer!
