If you’re anything like me, there are a hundred things vying for your attention online every day. From the moment my eyes open until the moment I log off and head to bed, I’m bombarded with messages, personal emails, work emails, and voice mails. Every day, I try to selectively choose what gets my attention and, particularly when work is crazy, I make sure to build in mini-breaks. During those breaks, I step away from work-think and seek out information that will make me think, laugh, and even cry.
I’m always on the lookout for ways to improve my time-management skills and increase my productivity. In the past I’ve written about how to work smarter, not harder and explored the difference between busyness and productivity. In more than a few blog posts, I have stressed the importance of taking frequent breaks to allow your mind to recharge and improve motivation.
Memorial Day is an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May. It is a day of remembrance, a time to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.
