It’s Labor Day, a supposed time of rest for the overworked masses. Here are two things to consider:
1.) Does your job feel like labor? Are you fulfilled doing what you do, or do you dread Mondays like the plague? If you’re counting down until the next long weekend, you might want to consider doing something else.
2.) What makes a good day off from work? Even if you love your job, it’s important to rest and recharge every so often. How did you spend Labor Day?
Both of these thoughts remind me of the importance of leisure in our lives. True leisure is time to enjoy yourself, your family, and your friends, yes, but it should include reflection, introspection, and time with what you consider divine.
I hope you got some real leisure time this weekend!
