How to create Work-Relax Balance

We get an extra day to relax this weekend as we celebrate Labor Day in the US. But do we ever really just relax over the weekend. Like most, I typically blend housework, yard work and business work in with my time relaxing with family and friends.

Relaxing BalanceBut with the extra day, I’m always tempted to put off the working and bump up the relaxing.

After all, isn’t the saying, why do on Saturday what can be put off until Monday?

Or, maybe I’m confusing it with this quote.
Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
–Thomas Jefferson

Ideally, I think the best approach is to find a comfortable balance for each day. That way, there’s no regret when I’m trying catch up on Monday for work I could have done on Saturday. And more importantly, I won’t be looking back on Tuesday and wondering what I did with my 3 day weekend.

A comfortable balance of working and relaxing over the weekend will bring success in both areas.

The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.
