Don't say you never get a day off! Maybe you work weekends, or have a hard time feeling relaxed when you're supposed to be "out of office." But no time off, ever? Not buying it.
So...let's define "day off" as any significant period of time during which you can 1) choose your preferred activity in a 2) non-stressful environment that requires 3) no connectivity to work-related email or other forms of communication that may rope you back into professionalmode unless the the house is truly on fire.
What do you do? Where do you go? How do you find that moment of restorative peace?
I'm a web writer and social media specialist with more than 20 years in online publishing - a good chunk of which has been spent writing about business, entrepreneurship, and the scrappy innovators who took a chance and totally went for it. I've also been a small-business owner, publishing a popular local website geared toward kids and families (I'm a mom of two myself). I love stories about people who have found a way to play to their strengths and maybe uncover a few new ones in an effort to make a contribution and a difference.
