If you are smart like Dave, you took off Thursday and Friday this week. A new study says that this is actually a good thing.



Happy Independence Day, Buffalo! 34% of Americans have the fourth of July off. Good for you! 1 in 10 people decided to take off Thursday and Friday too to make it an extended holiday. This is actually a pretty smart thing to do because it is important to take time off of work.

It is so important to check out of work and enjoy time on your own time. No deadlines, work worries, meetings, and the like. Taking time off of work actually improves your mental clarity and is really good for your overall health.

So, are you like Dave and decided to take off Thursday and Friday? If not, make it count on Wednesday and turn off those notifications for work related e mails and enjoy time with your family.
