[Reading] The Weekend Effect: The Life-Changing Benefits of Taking Time Off and Challenging the Cult of Overwork
demands—coupled with #domestic #chores
, #overbooked #schedules
, and the incessant pinging of our devices—have taken a toll on what used to be our free #time
: the #weekend
. With no #space
to tune out and recharge, every aspect of our lives is suffering: our #health
is deteriorating, our #social #networks
(the face-to-face kind) are dissolving, and our #productivity
is down. The notion of working less and living more, once considered an American #virtue
, has given way to the belief that you must be “on” 24/7.
Award-winning journalist Katrina Onstad, pushes back against this all-work, no-fun ethos. Tired of suffering from #Sunday
night letdown, she digs into the #history
, #positive #psychology
, and cultural #anthropology
of the great missing weekend and how we can revive it.
Onstad follows the trail of #people
, companies, and #countries
who are vigilantly protecting their time off for #joy
, and most #important
. Filled with #personal
and professional #inspiration
, The Weekend Effect is a thoughtful, well-researched argument to take back those #precious
48 hours, and ultimately, to save ourselves.

Goodness, has God been teaching me this lately. It’s like I expected each day to be super productive and fulfilling, and that each day would be full of good work, family, healthy choices, relaxing and goodness without me having to make it so. I now realize how crazy I was 😅 Balance doesn’t just happen to us. We have to MAKE margin in our lives. It’s too easy to get busy and fill our schedules and plates until we feel like life is spinning out of control if we don’t create space for the things that aren’t already scheduled for us (work obligations, cooking, practice/games for the kids, etc).
A mentor challenged me to think about the 3 most significant things in my life, and to put those in my schedule first. And if that meant I had to eliminate other things for now, so be it. It’s okay to say “no” and “not now” to things less significant. In fact, we SHOULD say no if the most important things in our lives are on the back burner.
Once the room is made for those significant things, I was challenged to hold myself to that schedule. And as I could, as life got more in balance, only THEN could I add some of those “no”s and “not now”s back in. But it’s important to stay keenly aware of your boundaries. If they start to slip, it’s important to start saying “no” again.
The bottom line is, our most important and significant things should NOT be what we reschedule for later, when life is less busy. We must MAKE time for them and keep them scared. Work on creating boundaries and balance today. Life only gets more busy, friends 💕
These systems can arrange and inform a cleaner when to clean a place. For example, you may have a business policy that a toilet needs to be cleaned when it is flushed about 40 times. But you can’t realistically measure it. But by using the automated scheduled cleaning system, you program it to notify you whenever the toilet is flushed 40 times.

Day 2 of 100 small ways to manage time by Oliver Luke Delorie: ARRIVE AND LEAVE ON TIME
This might seem like common sense but the number of people who don't allow enough time to get to meetings, or who haven't done their prep for said meeting is often quite high. If you prepare for a meeting in advance there is a high probability that you will be fully present and fully engaged and as such, will be much more able to stick to schedules and keep things precise.
I am normally good at the prep side of things, and to be fair, at work I'm normally good at time keeping. What I struggle with is getting everything done in the morning before work and quite often I have to sprint from my house to the train station to make sure I catch my train (only 1 an hour to my destination). Whilst this is good for my stamina/breathing/running, it's not so good for my stress levels as I always feel a bit rushed. I could apply the prep concept to my lunches, for example, and make lunch in the evening before I go to bed so it's one less thing to do in the morning. Perhaps I will give this a go and see if it helps me a little. .
