I took the day off from 3M today. I had a dentist (cleaning) appointment at 2 and I slept in and did some laundry this morning before it got too hot. I try to take 1 to 2 days off work each month, when I can manage it, in addition to holidays, as mental health/chore/errand days. It works well for me. When I don’t work, I don’t get paid, but I can afford to take a day off now and then. My next day off is July 23, when I have a therapist appointment and will catch up on writing and chores around the house.
