Would you work for someone who was constantly demanding email replies while you’re at the dentist? The doctors? In a meeting with another client?
Then don’t work for someone who doesn’t extend the same grace to your lunch hour (or two). Or your afternoon run. Or your three-times a week personal trainer session.
Don’t want your workers sick? Rather they don’t use sick days? Then let them do the things they need to ensure their own health and wellness.
Sure, I speak of this from the self-employed, no-on-pays-me-a-full-time-salary rate anyways, but still, set up boundaries.
Work outs can be meetings. Self-care can be therapy. Block that time out for yourself, because without your best self nobody wins.
