Your Emotional Wellbeing on a Four-Day Workweek

Ever heard the term “catch feelings”? Colloquially it is used to describe the romantic attraction that develops between two parties. It also refers to the act of someone getting hurt by someone else.

While having feelings may be perceived as weakness by some, any relationship you’ve encountered in your lifetime, will testify to the fact that it eventually involves emotions. Sometimes positive, sometimes negative. The UK results of the four-day week pilot was released last week and it found that:

54% of the participants experienced a reduction in negative emotions.

As an INFJ constantly bombarded by the emotions of others, I’m here for the positive vibes, but acknowledge that negative vibes often contribute to a balanced equation. South Africans are currently dealing with a lot and even a 27% reduction in the negative would be welcomed.

Here’s me encouraging you to go out there and catch feelings. Learn from the negative, repay the positive, but always remember to monitor and nurture your emotional state.
