LEAVE THE OFFICE EARLY DAY | JUNE 2
Everyone is sure to enjoy marking National Leave the Office Early Day on their calendar. Observed each year on June 2nd (unless June 2nd falls on a weekend, at which time it would be acknowledged on the closest working day) the observance is an incentive to many who often work more than 40 hours each week.
About a third of Americans work more than 40 hours per week. Some work even more than that. Those who are self-employed or who work two jobs, likely work 60-80 hours per week. Those types of hours don’t leave much for family, self-care, or home maintenance. Stress piles up and so do the phone calls from mom, the grandkids, and maybe the gym wondering where you’ve been. Maybe your best pals want to meet for a drink but you’ve been stuck behind a desk or on the road working.
This holiday reminds you to take a little time for yourself every once in a while.
HOW TO OBSERVE LEAVE THE OFFICE EARLY DAY
On this day, upon completion of all the necessary day’s work and the needed approval, it is suggested that you can then leave work early to enjoy the rest of the day with fun activities of your choosing. Use #LeaveTheOfficeEarlyDay to post on social media.
