Thursday 5th July marks this year’s ‘National Workaholic day’. A day to raise awareness of those who find it hard to tear themselves away from their desk and are never switched off from their emails.
Are you obsessed with your work, or do you have a friend or colleague who is a self-confessed workaholic? It’s great to have a healthy enjoyment of your work. In fact, we whole heatedly encourage you to be have a positive attitude, and a bounce in your step on your commute to work.
However, it’s important to maintain a healthy work/life balance, so here’s how to look after the workaholic in your life…
Ask them to book a random day off
Then use the day to organise a trip to somewhere fun. Maybe the beach or a theme park? You might just show them how to switch off, an important life skill for even the busiest professional to master!
Cook their favourite meal
It might just to entice them to leave the workplace on time in the evening and get some much needed rest! Furthermore, you’ll get plenty of brownie points!
Create a new hobby for them
Enrol them in a course to learn a new skill. From photography courses to Zumba lessons, there are thousands of things to inspire even the keenest workaholic away from their daily tasks.
