Time to Take a Break

Turns out taking a Sabbath is a good idea, even if you are not religious. This article, from the NY Times, does not give the results of a scientific study. It is just the reflection of a guy who decided that he needed to turn off everything one day a week: computer, TV, phone, PDA…

If you happen to think, as I do, that people were designed to take Sabbaths, there can only be one response to this: Duh.

But I don’t mean to be dismissive of this guy and his decision to take time off. More people should be doing this. People weren’t made to work as hard as we do most of the time.
