#BreakThings: Keep the Balls in the Air
What kind of week has this been?
I feel like a circus performer spinning plates on sticks while jumping through fiery hoops. But it is finally Friday, and in six hours, I can close this computer and take a breath. At least for a little while before I head into work again tomorrow.

It’s hard to justify a day off when every day of work is spent at home, or when everything feels so tenuous at the office. But I promise you, you need one. So look at your calendar, find a good day to take some time for yourself, and check Wit & Delight’s recommendations for the best way to spend it.
I hope you get whatever you need out of your weekend — whether it’s rest, fun, or productivity. We’re all going to get through this together.
