I think you know where I’m going with this. There would be a lot fewer people burning out on social media (blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) if they practiced the concept of Sabbath. Then they wouldn’t need a sabbatical.
I grew up around people who had all kinds of arbitrary Sunday rules: No television, no sports, no swimming, etc. I always swore I wouldn’t be that kind of parent. But early on we sensed the need for a Sunday computer Sabbath. Now that the kids are in their late teens, we don’t have full compliance every week, but as for myself, the computer doesn’t get switched on until around 4:30 PM.
You really do need to take a break now and then.
