Five Things To Do Every Day
By Erica and Karen
We are well aware of the old joke that when you are retired every day is a Saturday. But not if you are working, just at something else. Luckily, post-career work tends to be more under our control, so weekends are still weekends, more play than work. Fewer obligations that involve others. More time for ourselves.
we don’t really need to structure our weekends. but still. We have made a short list of things we are committed to doing every day. It's not too ambitious, and it’s not a set of New Year’s resolutions. Too obligatory. But we like this list, and when we fall short we usually do pick it up again the next day.
So here it is. The five things we promise ourselves to do every day.
Have a sit down meal--preferably with a glass of wine. (Not at breakfast.)
Have a conversation.
Put something on our calendar for next week.
Simple. And life affirming.By
