"Sitting still is harder than any kind of work." - Annie Oakley
In the US, Labor Day falls on the first Monday of September. Many working Americans will take the day off work to celebrate the achievements of the American laborer.
But what’s more difficult? Working…or not-working?
Annie Oakley said “Sitting still is harder than any kind of work.” Some people find it very difficult to stop working. If they’re not plugged into their phones or computers; they’re often busy with projects at home.
You can even say that ‘play’ is work. After all, playing a game often requires effort and thought. Just because it’s fun doesn’t mean that play isn’t work!
Uncle Goose is closed on Labor Day. We try to make work fun, but it’s still a good idea to take a day off. Do something different. Come back refreshed.
What about you? How will you celebrate the 3-day weekend? As you chat with friends and family over the holiday, consider these conversation starters:
- What’s harder for you: working… or sitting still?
- Working…or playing? Working...or not-working?
- How do you make your work fun?
- How do you take breaks from your phone and emails?
- And how to you make time for fun and play?
Happy Labor Day from Uncle Goose
