Mask requirement officially lifted on May 17 for fully vaccinated customers and employees.

If you’ve found it increasingly more difficult to commit to a full five-day work week, you’re not alone. An article in the American Psychological Association  (“Stress in America 2020: A National Mental Health Crisis,”),  states most of the nation is dealing with a mental health crisis.

That’s because we rearranged our lives  for two years due to the pandemic. Many of us worked from home and set our own schedules. We made it work.

Now that it’s time to get back to ‘normal’, many of us have found that the ‘normal’ five-day work week isn’t so ‘normal’ afterall. And companies recognize it, too. That’s why some like these below are leading the charge to have four-day work weeks.

And the four-day work week seems to come with benefits. BuzzFeed reported that one survey found that 98% of respondents believe a four-day workweek would improve their mental health and 97% say that they’d be more productive.

While not all companies are ready to make the switch, Newsweek reports there are at least 100 companies in the U.S. who are trying out the shorter work week.
