Article: Take Back Your Weekends (And Leave The Work at Work)

Article: Take Back Your Weekends (And Leave The Work at Work)

In this article from 99U, Scott Kirkwood examines the evolution of ‘the weekend’ and how it has changed over time with society’s pressure to work harder and longer, and our dependence on devices which keep us linked to work, even when we are off the clock. He interviews Katrina Onstad, author of The Weekend Effect: The Life-Changing Benefits of Taking Time Off and Challenging the Cult of Overwork and together they discuss her findings about the culture of work and the importance of truly switching off. We think you’ll get a lot out of this one!
