25 is the New 40

I’m sure you are reading this and thinking this blog is going to be about someone turning 40 years old and that turning 40 is equivalent to them being 25 years old, but keep reading and you will see this post is about something completely different.

Have you ever wished there were more hours in a week? Or that the weekend often passes by so quickly? Or you wake up on Monday thinking… Monday is here again. Sigh….Regardless if you answered yes or no, this blog is for you.

The last 2 weeks I have been working from home. Yes 2 full weeks!!! Do you know how that has changed my life and blessed my soul. Like working on your PJ’s is a complete blessing!

I have come up with the perfect solution for this; my idea is to propose shorter work days. With my new proposed work week, the average American will only be working 5 hours a day, 5 days a week in order to work a total of 25 hours a week but still make the same amount as if they were working 40 hour work weeks. Who made up this rule that we have to work 40 hours a week. I believe it is time to change this!

Of course, this sounds crazy and your manager and HR team will more than likely look at you as if you are crazy, but this will give you free time to eat 2 meals at home with family, parents will be able to pick up their kids from school, higher productivity, better work life balance and employees will be well rested for work. Majority of employees are more productive during their first 4 to 5 hours at work and once they go to lunch, it takes a while to get back into the groove of working, so why come back? Go home, relax!

So if you are with me, please forward this to your HR team and your manager for approval, but please don’t mention my name.

You can’t blame a girl for hoping this was actually my reality, but if my company ever needs anyone to volunteer to try this out, I will be the first volunteer in line!

Sign me up please. Lol

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. Genesis 3:2
