1. Penny! I love this thought about how me problems are also us problems. That’s such a kind and gentle way to bring people into a discussion about work. Thanks for the reminder about how great my government job is. While I do eat while answering emails it’s because I go for a run during my actual unpaid lunch break each day.

    You know where I think we, overworkers, fall down? It’s the people/relationships that fall if we don’t … return those calls, grade those papers, reply to that email. It’s not that the work isn’t important, it’s that even if it’s relatively unimportant in the grand scheme of the universe, we just don’t wanna let people down – whether they’re students or parents or clients. Agh!

  3. When I was working in the office, “lunch breaks” were actually a huge joke. I was always afraid and thinking about what I had to complete by the time I got back to my desk. I used to have 15 minute lunch hours then it was back to work I go.

    Work from home has been so great. I fully take lunch hours, maybe even two depending on how much work I have. Sweet!
