It doesn’t need to be the weekend. But you do need a couple days off each week.
Use the days that you have off of work already. Or, if you don’t work outside of the home, use your spouse’s.
But have two days where you only do your daily housekeeping routines. Don’t do anything else. Make one a family fun day, and make one a day to renew your own spirits.
Spending two days at the boat helps us to focus, once again, on the task at hand. It’s when I have time to write my blog. I reconnect with friends. Then, on Monday, I rejoin the rush.
