What things do you miss as a result of your traditional work schedule? Dinner as a family. Time with your spouse. Pets. Exercise. Hobbies. Sleep. While balancing multiple roles in life, it can be difficult to find enough time in the day to do the things that keep us healthy and happy. Doctors for years have advised us to exercise and get adequate sleep. Just a half hour a day of exercise and eight hours of sleep at night can drastically improve one's health. But how many of us get less exercise or sleep than suggested? Hobbies and relationships require a time commitment often precluded by the traditional work schedule. Pets suffer when left at home all day. And families suffer without time spent together.
Stop missing those things in your life that make you a healthier, happier human being. Commit instead to a flexible work schedule and find enough time for the things you love.
