In Work, Every Job is a Part-time Job

Usually, the only connection between work and our individual well-being is stated in legalese. Employers may provide health insurance, short term disability, contribute to workers compensation or help us save for retirement. There’s something else that can help us to stay healthy while continuing to advance our career, but it’s not a complicated financial instrument or a miracle drug. Instead, it’s just a simple phrase: “Every job is a part-time job.” That mantra serves many functions. There are several important points to remember.

The Benefits of Standing Up

When friends or family visit us at our home, we don’t make them stand. We encourage them to find a chair. “Relax!” we order. “Take a load off,” we say.  “Have a seat.” That tradition came from generations ago, when virtually every job required long days of physical labor.
